It’s been proven that being around dogs helps lower our stress levels and blood pressure, and generally make us happier and healthier people. So with that in mind, it’s hardly surprising that over a quarter (28%) of UK workers say they would be more attracted to a workplace that allowed dogs, and around one in four (24%) believe it improves their workplace productivity, according the our new research.
With employers increasingly looking to make workplace wellness and productivity their number one priority, more and more businesses are allowing dogs a seat at the boardroom table.
As part of this research, we launched a competition to find the nation’s top office dog in November and can now announce the winner of a hamper full of goodies from Aniforte: Morag, the resident office dog at Northern Monk Brew Co in Leeds.
