Why bring animals to the office? The effect is tested in practice!
The work of the .ru office almost every day is “paralyzed” by the invasion of four-legged guests: dogs, cats, hedgehogs, and even monkeys!
Some of the animals accompany their owners, the heroes of our interviews, but there are also regular "employees" - for example, the ideological inspirer of the project is the red-haired dachshund Monya.
We asked ourselves: how does the presence of animals affect work? And they began to look for information about this. For example, research results. And they were not too surprised to learn that such studies were conducted. One of them was conducted by Mars Petcare. They interviewed 1,200 employees (from rank-and-file to managers) of various American companies and found that the presence of pets in the office affects the work of employees very positively.
What was the positive effect?
The morale of the respondents improved.
The stress level has decreased.
A balance has been reached between work and personal life.
Loyalty towards the company has increased.
The guilt caused by the need to leave the animal at home alone decreased.
As a result, it was concluded: to be animals in the office! And we take Monya's dachshund to the state.
