Understanding the Benefits of Dogs in the Workplace, Presented by the CESAR Brand | Sessions
Dan Schawbel, Managing Partner of Workplace Intelligence and Nicole Serr, Corporate Affairs Purpose Lead at MARS Petcare are here to share the benefits of dogs into the workplace with pet parents and businesses. A recent study commissioned by the CESAR brand, a proud part of the Mars family of brands, shows that nearly three quarters (74%) of dog owners working in dog-friendly offices say their satisfaction at work has been positively impacted by their companies’ dog-friendly office policies. Through this discussion, Schawbel and Serr will share further examples on how dogs in the workplace promote positive office culture, higher employee satisfaction and strong employee retention. You will walk away from this session armed with tools and resources to help take those first steps to becoming dog-friendly in the workplace or further enhance your current dog-friendly offerings.
