SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS)— Many companies have begun to allow pets into the workplace. Dr. Jennifer Scarlett, with the San Francisco SPCA, explains why she thinks this is a win-win policy.
“Having this policy has allowed some companies to attract and maintain talent and for well-behaved pets it can be a boon for them to not have to stress out about when their person is coming home. For the employee it’s been shown to decrease stress, increase the creative process and productivity,” Scarlett said.
There has also been talk about the cardiovascular benefits of having pets in the workplace.
