At Podtime, we believe in an important principle: ‘time out, not burn out‘.
Maintaining a dedicated space for rest at the workplace can have real benefits for both employers and employees alike.
The benefits to employers:
Employers should view sleep not as a waste, but as an investment. Well-rested individuals are more productive, make fewer mistakes, and have stronger health. Making employee sleep a corporate matter therefore will have a direct effect on your year-end results. Nap facilities also make for an attractive office perk and an effective means for retaining employees. Our sleeping pods are an economic and space-friendly solution for any type of office.
The benefits to employees:
Sleep is considered the third pillar of wellness along with diet and exercise. By having the opportunity for a short rest throughout the day, employees can ensure themselves sufficient sleep and the many benefits that follow, including increased alertness, improved memory, better cognitive processing, and stability in mood. Long term benefits of healthy sleep patterns also include lower stress levels and reduced risk of heart disease.

Podtime and short rest; this is definitely the way forward. As technology continues to develop at warp speed, we find ourselves increasingly limited in terms of how much information we are able to process on a moment by moment basis.
The human brain, as sophisticated as it might seem, is still developing its capacity to deal with the volume of incoming information traffic that we have to handle in our daily lives. I see the effects of this in my professional and clinical work as loss of productivity, insomnia, burnout and other serious health problems.
Enlightened individuals and organisations will increasingly have to look for clever ways of going ‘offline’ in order to optimise productivity, health and wellness. Maybe businesses will even start to see that this is where a competitive advantage may lie.
