The idea behind this locally based company is that a well rested employee is a productive employee. Their service provides supervised naps which allows frazzled nerves a chance to relax and your stressed out brain an opportunity to calm the "chatter".
Many big corporate names such as Nike, Google, Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream, and Deloitte Consulting offer employees the opportunity and some dedicated space to nap.
