When you own a pet and you work, it is not easy to be present during important stages, such as the arrival of the new member of the family at home or , much sadder, his death.
At a time when most pet owners designate them as an integral part of their family structure, being able to reconcile this aspect and professional life is an objective to which more and more people aspire.
It is in this perspective that HealthVet innovates by launching an unusual device for its employees. The leader in animal health insurance has been offering them since 1uh August, the possibility of being absent when they adopt a pet or lose theirs.
The initiative of HealthVet is part of its approach to promote the well-being of employees and their animals, as well as to encourage adoption and improve the human-animal relationship.
The “paw-ternity” leave
Lasting 2 days, this paid leave granted to the employee who has just adopted, allows him to accompany his new dog, cat or even NAC in his home. He can thus have time to devote to the newcomer to get to know him, help him adapt and organize his visits to the veterinarian in particular.
