Japanese company paying its staff to sleep more

By host - sam-jeong
The idea of getting extra pay in return for sleeping sounds crazy, but an upmarket wedding company in Tokyo – called Crazy – is doing just that.

The fraught subject of sleep is getting a lot of attention in Japan. So much so that staff at Crazy who get at least six hours of sleep a night are awarded points worth up to $570 a year that can be exchanged for meals in the company’s cafeteria.

Not getting enough sleep can trigger a range of health issues, including high blood pressure, stroke, and depression. At its most extreme, sleep deprivation can lead to confusion, lack of cognitive functions, and ultimately death. It has even been used as a torture technique.https://www.weforum.org/agenda/2018/11/this-japanese-company-pays-its-employees-to-get-a-good-night-s-sleep?utm_source=Facebook%20Videos&utm_medium=Facebook%20Videos&utm_campaign=Facebook%20Video%20Blogs

The company has recognized the importance of sleep to everybody, and the health risks of not getting enough of it. So, it allows its employees to sleep more and still pay them for it. Amazing!

Not that long ago, there was bad news about the number of suicides in Japan because the people were pushed to work, work, work. Big change.

Kids should be in separate rooms. If your a fulltime working parent you need to get rest so your working at full potential at work, if your full time stay at home parent that's different.
