Standing desks, comfortable couches and in-office activities like ping pong are all features of a modern workplace that can appeal to employees on a superficial level, but real workplace benefits that enrich the personal and professional lives of individuals are what keep employees happy and productive.
Loftey, an apartment rental platform in midtown Manhattan has a firm grip on this concept, and offers its employees competitive perks that help them stay loyal to the company. One of these perks is its newly implemented and successful 'Pawternity' leave program, which enables an employee to take time off work to care for their pets. This benefit offers bereavement time to grieve the loss of a pet, as well as paid days off to care for a newly homed or sick four-legged friend.
Loftey's offering helps its employees find a more comfortable balance between work and life, as it ensures one's career won't stand in the way of seeking a pet companion.
