It’s important to have a workspace that’s comfortable for everyone, including our furry friends. Center 615 has won the first-ever CESAR® Workplace Grant, and we’re excited to share what that means for our employees, you and your dog(s)!
The Benefits of a Pet-Friendly Workplace
In the wake of the worst of COVID-19, many people are finding the return to “office life” challenging. Remote work was great for many reasons, and for dog owners, that extra time spent with their companion was chief among them.
Now that many people have returned to the office, their pets can’t always come back with them. At Center 615, that’s not the case. In our coworking space and rented offices, you and our staff can bring your dog to work! Offering a pet-friendly workplace is important to us because we know it’s hard missing your four-legged friends while you’re at work. Studies have shown that people are much happier working in the office when they can bring their dog, and the smiling faces around the Center 615 campus are proof of that. Dogs reduce stress and boost morale. If you’re looking to rent office space from Center 615 for your business, dog-friendly postings attract top talent. People who want to take their dogs to work with them will often skip out on applications that aren’t remote or don’t let them bring their pets into the workplace. If you struggle with your work-life balance in a traditional office space, having your dog with you can be the thing that makes it all work. Get work done with the peace of mind that your dog is right by your side. We know our staff sure enjoys it! Don’t worry about whether he’s happy at home or tearing up your new throw pillows.
Dogs benefit our mental health, and their presence can make work feel more enjoyable; but this isn’t the only benefit of having your pet at work. Getting up and taking regular breaks is proven to enhance productivity, but many of us struggle with finding the right moment to get up and get moving. With your dog, you’re going to need to take some bathroom breaks, which gives you both exercise and the necessary break to recharge your brain and spark creativity. Many people also need to put their dogs in doggy daycare during the workday, and being able to bring them to the office can reduce your expenses, helping you to save money. And if you’re worried that they’re going to lose the socialization that pet sitting or daycare provides, don’t panic! There are many dogs that visit and spend their days with the C615 employees and folks who call Center 615 their office. Center 615 is Nashville’s premier dog-friendly coworking space, and we’re excited to expand our offerings with the grant we’ve recently received from CESAR®.
