"Bring your Dog to Work"-Policy
Studies conclude that pets help to relieve stress,, promote positive mood and even can improve physical health. This supports the home-office, but also office may become bet-friendly. Anyone has experience with a "Bring your Dog to Work"-Policy?
Bring your Dog to Work"-Policy is a new idea since pets can bring joy and companion to the owner as well as the owner's colleague. I agreed and support your idea only if the pets must:
a) Owned a house in the office
b) Obtained vaccinations including DDTP and Rabies
e) Good hygiene
Bring one's dog to works actually does helps to improve the job environment! Who does not like dogs to play with? Imagine the feeling when you are back at your home and you are greeted by your lovely dog wagging his tail! Imagine if we could bring such atmosphere to the work environment! would't it helps to boost the work environment, decrease stress and filled the room with happiness?
However, not all working environment are suitable to bring along one's dog. For instance if one is working in the hospital such as the ER department, surgical theater, etc. Such working environment might jeopardize both the dog and the people who are in that setting.
It is great to have pets around at work. But, one must be cultural sensitive too. Certain religion such as Muslims might have some issue with dogs. Hence, it is prudence to be cultural aware of such issue by asking permission prior to launch the idea of bringing one's dog to work!
Not in my own work environment, but at a workplace I used to visit frequently. It was nice but sometimes it became too much (and I really like dogs!).
I am sure that not everyone likes this, for their own reasons - and I suspect that on the whole, this can significantly dampen the benefits.
Dogs in work can reduce the work related stress,improve moral and job satisfaction as well.But before that you should make sure with your activity you should harm any other employee's privacy and hygienic level. Some rule suggestions for organisations who are allowing pets to their work station.
- Make sure there will be a separate area for dogs to stay and have food.
- Limit the no of pets visit per day.
- Create a pet committee to ensure safety and care of dogs with their respective owners.
- If your pet is sick,you should take care at home.
- Pet must be supervised by their owners (by cctv or physical).
- Teach your dog to behave well with other animals as well.
- They shouldn't bother the employees who do n't like dogs.
