U.S. companies valuing sleep

Some parts of corporate America are finally waking up to the importance of a good night’s sleep. On the blog Conduit, James Heron recently wrote that forward-thinking companies are reconciling their corporate culture with the benefits of sleep for their employees.
Here are a few examples cited by Heron:

  • At Nike, employees have access to quiet, nap-inducing rooms where they can sleep or meditate.
  • British Airways pilots have the company’s blessing to sleep during international flights while co-pilots take over the controls.
  • In its global offices, Google makes available sleep pods for the weary.
  • Time Warner and Newsweek employees working in Manhattan can visit napping spas for some quiet time.
