为这些公司打工,你可以带狗上班

Rachel King 2019年06月23日

调查机构发现,如果宠物主人能够带狗上班,超过75%的人跳槽的几率会降低。

全球最大的宠物保姆和遛狗师网络Rover.com发布了首份“对宠物狗最友好办公室”榜单,雀巢、爱彼迎、网约车平台Uber、客户关系管理解决方案提供商Salesforce和伏特加酒品牌Tito’s Handmade Vodka等公司名列前茅,上榜公司都欢迎员工带宠物上班(至少宠物狗没问题)。

Rover在自主编制的榜单中对全美100多家对宠物狗友好公司进行了排名,评分标准包括允许带入办公室的宠物狗数量、宠物狗和主人享受的福利以及办公室特别便利设施等。

亚马逊位居榜首,Rover给出的理由是,总部位于西雅图的巨头“在园区内建造了宠物狗公园,提供大量免费粪便袋和零食,能够照看6000只已经登记的宠物狗。”不出所料,宠物食品和供应商PetSmart、Petco和雀巢普瑞纳宠物护理中心也榜上有名——两家公司出名的是家里宠物去世的员工可以放假一天。(别听有些人说宠物不算家庭成员。)

Rover榜单上的许多公司都位于六大都市圈:波士顿、洛杉矶、纽约市、圣迭戈、西雅图和旧金山湾区。

但是,除了Rover制定的标准以外,很多上榜公司为养狗员工提供的实际支持更多,有各种各样的福利和补贴,比如最多500美元的领养费用、办公区宠物狗公园、宠物洗发水和其他用品等,甚至还有“育狗假”,员工刚养狗后可以额外获得一周的事假。(养过小狗的人都知道,第一周尤其艰难。)

为什么各家公司如此大手笔投资宠物福利呢?根据Rover的内部调查,如果宠物主人能够带狗上班,超过75%的人跳槽的几率会降低。此外,Rover的研究发现,如果办公室对汪星人很友好,能够减轻员工的压力并提高工作效率。现在,职业倦怠已经被列入临床健康问题,会导致员工焦虑、抑郁和患病。

Rover已经在网上公布了完整榜单,其他欢迎员工带宠物狗上班的公司也可以自荐,参加明年的评选。(财富中文网)

Rover.com, the world’s largest network of pet sitters and dog walkers, has released its inaugural “Best Dog Friendly Offices” list. Among some of the Very Good Companies (at least as far as dogs are concerned) welcoming our four-legged companions into their offices are Nestle, Airbnb, Uber, Salesforce, and Tito’s Handmade Vodka.

Just in time for “Bring Your Dog to Work Day” coming up on Friday, June 21, Rover’s proprietary list ranks more than 100 dog-friendly companies across the United States, doling out points based on the total number of dogs allowed in the office, dog and pet parent perks, and specific office amenities.

Amazon topped off the list at number one because, according to Rover, the Seattle-based behemoth “supports its 6,000 registered dogs with an on-campus dog park and plenty of free poop bags and treats.” Not surprisingly, pet food and suppliers PetSmart, Petco, and Nestle Purina Petcare—the latter two of which were noted to offer employees an extra day off for pet bereavement. (Don’t let anyone tell you pets aren’t family.)

Many of the companies on Rover’s list were based in the following six major metropolitan areas: Boston, Los Angeles, New York City, San Diego, Seattle, and the San Francisco Bay Area.

But many of these companies actually do a lot more for dog-owning employees, with plenty of treats and perks for humans, such as offering up to $500 toward adoption fees, on-campus dog parks, pet shampoo and other supplies, and even “pawternity” leave, usually entailing one extra week of personal time off (PTO) after getting a dog. (Anyone who has gotten a puppy, especially, knows that the first week is the hardest.)

So why are these companies investing so much in pet perks? According to Rover’s internal research, more than 75% of pet parents who are able to bring their dogs to the office are more likely to stay with their current employer. Furthermore, Rover’s research linked dog-friendly workplaces to both reductions in stress and increases in productivity. This comes at a time when burnout is truly (and finally) able to be diagnosed as a clinical health problem, squeezing workers to the point of anxiety, depression, and disease.

Rover’s full list is available online now, and businesses that also welcome their employees’ four-legged best friends can submit their names for consideration for next year’s tally.
