In Japan, be paid to sleep
Japan is famous for its work-hard culture, with employees expected to spend many hours at their desk. Overtime is expected; leaving early, traditionally, frowned upon.
Now, though, the Japanese government is looking again at its work culture in a bid to look after its population’s health.
It’s recommending employees take a 30-minute nap early in the afternoon. Unrealistic?
Tech companies in Japan are already embracing it, creating “strategic sleeping rooms” where mobile devices are banned and everything is set up to help you get some shuteye.
