their employees. However, globally, multinational companies such as Google, Uber, Nike,

at the workplace to their employees so that they can get some sleep at work. By seeing
some changes, nowadays other companies are considering to launch this idea.

Running successful companies means, growing country’s economy, this is the bottom line. I
saw the study of RAND Corporation in the US, where they have mentioned five-country
across the world economic cost of insufficient sleep.
According to RAND Corporation, Economic cost of insufficient sleep
Canada – 21.14 Billion dollars (GDP 1.35%)
United Kingdom – 50 Billion dollars (GDP1.86%)
United State – 411 Billion dollars (GDP2.28%)
Germany – 60 Billion dollars (GDP1.156%)
Japan – 138 Billion dollars (2.92%)
This data shows that just simply increasing sleeping habits (at least 7 hours), we could raise
billion dollars to the country’s economy. in India, employees need nap rooms to arrive at
the bottom line. Sleep deprivation can cause severe issues such as higher mortality risk,
impact on the economy and many more.
Offering nap rooms, employees become loyal to your companies, as you can see that many

that how employees get treated out there. Nowadays many companies have understood
employee needs and nap rooms have become global tread.

employee’s nap rooms at the workplace called sleep pods, who are willing to have a quick
snooze, While Nike’s headquarters in Portland has given rooms where employees could
sleep and meditate as well. CISCO (IT company) has given comfy nap pods to their
employees, PwC has introduced a nap room called Sleek Sleeping rooms in Switzerland
Office, And Uber has adopted this idea too and given this facility across the all over the

To prevent low productivity, Indian employees give an honest opinion that they need nap
rooms at the station. Forbes survey mentioned that over 85 percent of respondents
believed that napping at the workplace can undoubtedly mushroom work performance and
productivity. It indicates that employees have started thinking of self-care, they would like
to work where they are able to manage life and work. In India companies’ owners have
different points of view about nap rooms, they might think it can create issues at the
workplace. As I have mentioned so many reviews about napping rooms, it has proven that
sleep should not be considered as a work hinder. Just forcing employees to improve
productivity isn’t a solution long time solution, you have to give appropriate facilities at the
workplace. Now the time has changed and not just Indian employees but also all over the
world who work as employees, they deserve nap rooms.
