After the pandemic, most people changed their work priorities. And now, pet-friendly workplaces attract better talent.
As the Great Resignation continues, the trend of looking for a new job is still high in the US (over 44%). Attracting and retaining talent implies alternative strategies for employees, starting with flexible arrangements and a better work-life balance.
And pet-friendly workplaces are a winning choice as much as remote work options. People expect other perks besides promotions, rewards, and parking spots: pets, bikes, and electricity.
Following the first lockdown, most people got a new pet at home because of remote work schedules. As a result, recent studies found that 46% of owners would change their current jobs to a pet-friendly workplace. Furthermore, the so-called ‘pandemic pets’ got used to having their owner around all day. So, pet care is becoming as important as child care for most people looking for a job.
Finally, companies offering training to work remotely in fields like law, accounting, design, or project management have more chances to attract talent.
Pet-friendly workplaces and e-parking are just two examples of the workforce changing following the pandemic. From a better work-life balance to a lack of commuting time, people want to work in a dynamic environment without forgetting their personal commitments.
As most jobs are transferring online, e-parkings and pet-friendly workplaces are new strategies to attract talent and retain employees.
