Some employers are encouraging workers to sleep on the job. The Society for Human Resource’s 2014 poll of HR pros says 6% of workplaces have nap rooms where employees can catch up on their Z’s.
In a National Sleep Foundation survey, 34% of workers said their bosses let them nap at work. The foundation’s research indicates that even a 10-minute midday nap can make employees more alert and improve cognitive performance for several hours afterward, reducing the chance for mistakes and accidents.
