Many studies have shown that having a pet-friendly working environment is great for employee loyalty as well as company profits. But while it’s an amazing perk to work for an organization that allows you to bring Milo to work with you, it’s important for the space to be outfitted with equipment that ensures your furry baby is safely frolicking while you’re working.
There are several steps you can take to reduce the likelihood your pet will become lost or harmed. For starters, give them access to the outdoors! Install a doggy door that gives your pets the freedom to go outside as they please. Pet doors come in a variety of styles, depending on your need and budget. Doors that flap open or close when pets enter or exit provide an inexpensive option, while higher technology doors that open and close via a sensor placed on the pet’s collar provide higher security at a higher cost.
Once outside, it’s important that your pet remains safety contained. For business owners who do not own the property, an invisible, wireless fence is a great choice. Wireless fences can be very cost effective, and do not create a visible hindrance, which is important when you’re dealing with a property that’s not yours.
Pets can bring a new energy to the office that can improve employee morale and also increase productivity. But before inviting them in, be sure to safeguard the property for their own benefit as well as your staff’s.
