Call it puppy love if you will, but results from a new Klick Inc. employee survey suggest that bringing puppies to the office, more free food and drink, surprise extra vacation time, and other people-centric perks can do wonders for adding happiness to the workplace.
When asked what would make them “more happy today,” about one-quarter of participating Klicksters said bringing puppies (or their own dogs) into the office would bring them joy; over 20 percent said they would love more free food and drink, such as gourmet cupcakes, ice cream, and barista-grade coffee; 13 percent put surprise extra vacation time at the top of their happy list; and 10 percent said getting free tickets for cultural attractions or travel would be blissful. Other top responses included getting in-office manicures and salon treatments, formal afternoon tea service, and doing more corporate philanthropy.
The voluntary poll captured 335 responses on the company’s intranet from March 7th to 12th in the lead-up to the UN’s International Day of Happiness on March 20th.
