Furry Fiesta! The benefits of taking your pet to work.
We usually discuss that a highly competitive world has given rise to immense pressure and need for efficiency among the employees. But we fail to notice that it is not just the employees who are facing the pressure of competition but also our employers. As the job opportunities are on a constant rise, these employers need to strive hard to retain efficient workforce in their organization. In order to do so, they are ready to go to any extent, literally. The main way to make sure that employees don’t leave is by keeping them happy and giving in to their demands.
Giving in to any kind of demands does not mean acknowledging a toddler’s tantrums. The organization must know how to distinguish between a reasonable and an unruly one. This is done taking into consideration the convenience of the organization. Reasonable basically means that it must evidently improve the productivity at the workplace. One of the useful ways to yield high work productivity is to make sure that you have your employees’ undivided attention. This means that if the employee does not have to worry about something else at the back of his head, only then he will be able to give his best.
Taking this ideology into consideration, employers started allowing their employees to bring their kids to work so that there won’t be parents stressing over what their tiny tot is doing. But this perk doesn’t end here.
There was a lot of hue and cry about not treating animals equivalent to humans. A number of people argued that for them their pets were as good as their own children. This sparked a debate about allowing pets at work the way children are allowed. Initially, companies were not so pleased with the idea of having animals around at the workplace. After all, it is tedious to look after them and make sure that they don’t trouble the people around them. After endless discussions, the concept of allowing pets to work moved over from being an annual event to a regular phenomenon.
