Are you a dog lover who has had a hard time getting back to the office after spending the last year or so around the house for your furry friend?
Working remotely has changed a lot for many of us.
For some, it’s definitely been a difficult transition – getting back to the office – and maybe it has resulted in more employees wanting to work in dog-friendly companies.
Just this week Rover released a report listing the best dog-friendly companies in the United States, taking into account factors such as:
Whether dogs are allowed in the office.
Animal Insurance and / or Adoption Scholarships.
Pet exemption for grief or adoption.
Office amenities such as treats, dog beds or gates.
For remote work, some of these companies have also encouraged their employees to share photos and videos of their dogs, and allowed their furry loved ones to take part in work-related video calls.
On a day when many companies are struggling to find workforce, a survey by Rover found that 93% of companies found that corporate morale has improved since introducing dog-friendly benefits, while 95% believe it has been positive impacted hiring and recruiting.
Here were the top 25 dog-friendly companies according to this year’s ranking.
