At one time, bringing your dog to work seemed like one of the many conveniences of working for a startup. But as people are discovering the benefits beyond convenience, the wellness benefits of animal companionship at work are in the spotlight.
A best practice is to have a contract with those employees wanting to bring animals to work. This isn't exactly 'fun,' spontaneous and informal, but that way an employee can determine whether it is appropriate to bring their beloved pet into the office.
Bringing your best friend to work has so many benefits, and with a little preparation and mindfulness, it can be a wonderful way to to celebrate the value of pets in the workplace - and of course, to show off your furry family member!
