You’re not the only one sleeping on the job. Dozens of companies worldwide now have spaces for workers to catch some shut-eye. There’s low tech: Yarde Metals in Southington, Connecticut, offers cot-filled nap rooms. There’s high tech: Matsushita Electric Works in Tokyo has mechanical massage chairs and will study workers’ sleep patterns.
If your company’s not down with downtime, there are also a growing number of private sleeperies. Among them, MetroNaps in New York and Vancouver — where you sleep in a dinosaur-egg-like enclosure — and Masajes a 1.000 — a franchise in Spain where a five-minute massage precedes a 30-minute nap. Siesta anyone? — Joseph Guinto
