MetroNaps: Energy at Work
It all began back in 2003, because we saw people falling asleep: at work, on the train, in all kinds of places. When we first discussed the idea of napping at work with professionals, what we heard most was that nobody wanted to be caught 'sleeping on the job'. Some admitted that they would sneak off to the toilet, a parked car or an unused conference room to get a little rest. The remainder simply caffeinated their circadian rhythm in an attempt to keep their focus.
That’s why we created the EnergyPod: the world’s first chair designed specifically for napping in the workplace. Through our patented solution, we have created the gold standard that provides unique functionality, requires limited space and helps overcome dated stigma related to sleep.
Allowing employees to take a short 15-20 minute nap is an easy and effective way to boost alertness and productivity. It also improves mood, creativity and learning. The long term health benefits are also substantial.
Leading employers acknowledge the vital need for sufficient sleep and they are supporting this by providing their employees with dedicated rest facilities. MetroNaps works for a broad range of clients and has implemented installations in offices, hospitals, universities and fitness centers in dozens of countries across four continents.
