Years ago, all that was needed to lure top talent to a company was to offer a good salary, a decent benefits package, and the promise of a great future.

But things have changed. Today if you want to attract the best and brightest, you’ll need to add one more thing to your list. A more accommodating work environment.

That’s because this generation of employees is looking for something different than workers in the past. This new generation of employees want the freedom to choose a space that fits their needs. One company, in particular, wanted to create a space that was conducive to employees bringing their pets to work with them. An initiative such as this required careful planning and most importantly, a space that could visually and functionally accommodate numerous animals being in the office throughout the workday. But once it was achieved, it provided employees with an even greater benefit; a workspace the provided functionality, flexibility and comfort for both them and their pet.
