Researchers from Virginia Commonwealth University studied the working population at Replacement’s LTD, which has been a pet-friendly employer for 17 years. They tested three groups of employees including those that brought their dogs to work, those that left their dogs at home and those who didn’t have dogs. The results showed the lowest stress levels in those employees that had their pets with them and the highest were in those who left their pets at home. Something to think about.
