The case for pets in the workplace

An increase in pet ownership during COVID-19 has demonstrated a greater need for businesses to become pet friendly.

Many companies continue to have people working both from home and in the office. We want to help employers and employees adapt to the new situation.

Research shows that having pets in the workplace improves productivity and collaboration, and alleviates stress. Employee satisfaction and morale are top-of-mind for most HR leaders, and pet-inclusive policies can help.

Australia CAN works directly with companies and employees to develop policies for an integrated workplace that meets the needs of the company, non-pet owners and pet-owning staff.

Australia has the third highest rate of pet ownership in the world.
