Anyone who studies work environments understands how important it is to attract, engage, retain, and create communities of employees. Why? Billions of dollars are wasted every year on employee attrition – latest estimates by SHRM indicate that it costs between 50-120k/employee to find and train a new employee once just one person leaves!
So in a joint project with HABRI, we wanted to explore the role that pets play with employees. It should be noted that we had no real expectations – other than we could show that pet friendly work environments contributed to happier, healthier employees.
What we discovered was way beyond that.
This webcast will help you:
- Recognize how the employee environment influences specific work outcomes
- Understand the role that pets play with employees
- Seek the reasons to why a pet friendly work environment contributes to happier, healthier employees
