Sleep derivation world-wide is at an all-time high. As technology has allowed us to be more connected than ever. Many companies have demanded longer working hours, and expect to receive a response from employees around the clock. Adding to this crisis are the many executives who publicly claim their success is due to their early working hours. They brag about their short sleeping schedules and send an underlying message that sleep is for the weak.
Innovative companies are combating this sleep deprivation, and round-the-clock schedules by allowing their employees to take naps on-site. Many are also putting a cap on working hours. Much like NASA in the 1990s, these employers are noticing that their employees are much more productive after taking short naps.
