Some employers encourage napping at work
BURLINGTON, Vt. (KABC) -- How would you like to be asleep on the job with your boss's permission?
More and more employers are acknowledging the benefits of letting their employees take an after-lunch nap.
At Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream in Vermont, a 20-minute snooze is not just OK with the boss, it's encouraged. Just leave your shoes outside the "nap room" door.
"It's really important for the company to have happy, healthy employees so we can all do our best," said Liz Brenna, a Ben & Jerry's spokesperson.
A new study found that 30 percent of workers fell asleep on the job in a one-month period.
Researchers said that a short morning nap will help recover your creative thinking and memory while an afternoon nap will help rejuvenate you physically.
