PrintingforLess.com (PFL) is a Montana-based printing business that is also a dog-friendly. Their press release for this year’s Take Your Dog to Work Day proudly stated:
Here at PrintingForLess.com, we get to bring our dogs to work on a daily basis. We’ve found having office dogs helps with staff morale, builds camaraderie among employees, stimulates creativity and decreases employee absenteeism.
I’m a huge supporter of the pet-friendly workplace for all of the reasons stated above. I recently heard a Chief Executive say that he uses statistics on frequency of employee sick leave as a measure of whether the employees are engaged with the business or not. Many businesses with pet-friendly workplaces, like PFL, report that employee absenteeism decreases after the pet-friendly workplace is instituted. That’s good news for employees, employers, customers, and the dogs!

When you take a look at the PFL website, you can see that the company has a pretty special culture, and the dog-friendly workplace policy is only one part of that. Watch the PFL culture video on their website.
Well done PrintingforLess.com!
