Why You Really Should Bring Your Pet to the Office

Finding new ways to get work done can be difficult. Sure, you can write an updated to-do list and learn about new ways to keep yourself on track, but it might be time for something new.

Turns out, the best (and honestly way more fun) approach to staying motivated at work might actually be to bring your pet into the office.

Sound strange? Having that best friend with four legs around can actually decrease your stress throughout the day and make your office a happier place. Nearly 50% of employees who were able to bring their pet to work revealed higher levels of overall productivity—and the same could happen for you. Check out the infographic below to learn even more about this growing trend, and then ask your boss about trying it for yourself!
