#WorkTrends Preview: Benefits of Pets in the Workplace

#WorkTrends Preview: Benefits of Pets in the Workplace

This week’s show is going to the dogs… specifically to dogs in the workplace.

According to researchers at the Virginia Commonwealth University School of Business, it was discovered that pets in the workplace actually create a buffer between stressful situations, boost employee morale and increase productivity. This speaks fathoms about the value they bring not only to our personal lives, but to our professional ones, as well.

Please join this week’s special guest Gordie Spater, CEO of Kurgo and host Meghan M. Biro on Wednesday, January 25 at 1pm EST as they uncover the benefits of a pet-friendly workplace.
