SensĂ©e survey finds pets could be central to employee happiness.
SensĂ©e, the UKâ€™s leading homeworking outsourcing provider, today reveals that more than two-thirds (67%) of UK workers experience feelings of guilt, followed closely by anxiety and unhappiness when leaving pets at home for long periods of time.
Based on research involving both home-based and office workers, the survey also found that nearly three-quarters (74%) of office workers claim to have considered working from home in order to care for their pets.
Almost half (47%) of homeworkers questioned claim that their pet was an influencing factor when deciding to become a home-based worker.
â€śThe flexibility of home-based working gives employees the opportunity to spend more time caring for members of the family and pets,â€ť explains Steve Mosser, CEO of SensĂ©e. â€śBy enabling employees to work remotely, companies can relieve the anxiety that many workers with pets feel when away from home for long periods of time.â€ť
The survey also found that a third of home-based workers spend more than three hours per day caring for their pets. Unsurprisingly, the most popular pets were found to be dogs, cats and small mammals.
â€śWorking from home has been a life-changing experience,â€ť says Kelly Dring, a SensĂ©e HomeAgent. â€śWhen I used to work in an office I would often rush back home at lunch to check on my two dogs. I just didnâ€™t like the idea of them being alone all day. However since becoming a home-based worker, I have so much more flexibility to do the things I want â€“ including spending more time with my pets.â€ť
