The Pets of Painters USA

Tuesday, October 27, 2020

Ozai, Max, Silo and Regan: these are just a few of the friendly faces you’ll see around Painters USA. They’re not foreman or project coordinators – they’re members of the VIP operations team (Very Important Pets), and yes - they’re animals!

If you roam our Chicago, Danville, Houston or Dallas offices you will find a pet or two in an office meeting, sitting at their owners’ desk, or on a walk.

Having pets at work or home is fun and entertaining for everyone, but it’s also full of metal and physical health benefits. Here are 4 advantages of a pet-friendly workplace. Enjoy!

1.Reduce Anxiety

Studies show pets can help lower stress levels and improve employee job satisfaction. Pets tend to create a comfortable work environment that helps to counterbalance any on the job tension.

2.Create Change

More than half of employees who want pets allowed in the office are willing to spearhead efforts to make their workplace pet friendly.

3.Make New Friends

Pets make it easier to approach new people and get to know them better. They encourage team building. Pets create an instant shared interest and can facilitate deeper conversations.

4.Dogs boost office morale

Don’t you just love that instant mood booster you get when a dog greets you excitedly? Take a deep breath, pat a pet, smile and hop to it!

All things considered, we’re saying having a pet is a major win for pets and workers alike!
