The Benefits of a Dog-Friendly Office

Here at Rumbletree, we disagree on many things, the best place to get lunch in North Hampton, our favorite seasons, whether or not there is enough room between cars to turn left on Lafayette Road…but one thing we do all agree on? Having a dog-friendly office is amazing! While there are million reasons why this is one of our favorite Rumbletree perks, some of the top ones are:

Dogs Attract Talented People
We have an extremely diverse group here at Rumbletree with experts in strategy, branding, social media, media buying, and client management. Many millennials are delaying children and favoring pets during their 20’s and early 30’s. Allowing for dogs in the office is one of the top reasons millennials in the workplace will choose one company over another.

Dogs Allow Employees to Focus (even after 5)
Having a dog-friendly workplace keeps employees focused on finishing client deliverables after 5 o’clock hits. They aren’t worried about running home to get their pup and can wrap up projects without the rushed feeling that comes with having to let a pet at home outside.

Dogs Encourage Employees to be Active
Man’s best friend is often happiest when outdoors. Employees with dogs are almost forced to go outside. Mid-day walks can be clarifying and reinvigorating for the mind. Many times, we find that the second we step away from the computer, our next great idea comes to us!

Dogs Reduce Stress
It’s a proven fact! Our furry friends are natural de-stressors, improve moods, and can make anyone having a ‘ruff’ day smile. In the fast-paced marketing world, it’s never a bad idea to take a break and get a big hug from your pup! De-stressed employees mean healthy, happy employees.
