When there's a downward spiral in the economy, most companies' employee benefits tighten-up. But, prosperous organizations brainstorm about employee retention and innovative hiring practices. For example, Procter & Gamble, Google and Nike number among employers who now endorse napping at work.
Workplace napping is a thoughtful perk, since 51% of the workers surveyed agreed quantity of work diminishes after a sleepless night. Alert workers are healthier, according to studies that suggest scheduled rest during the workday decreases heart disease and lowers stress.
A Planned nap is an under utilized opportunity for decreasing risks and improving profits; whereas accidental falling asleep on the job is one nod away from a costly disaster.
In an ideal world, taking a short time-out for a nap (versus the many risks of unscheduled falling asleep at work by sleep deprived employees) would be embraced by all employers. Or, as an article in the Detroit News stated, "daytime snoozing is an important part of 'full-spectrum fitness'".
Pods, advertised as "state-of-the-art", that play relaxing sounds and
waken the employee with vibrations and lights, may beckon employers. But, the bottom line is they're expensive and take up a lot of space.
