Sleeping on the job may not be the best career move — just ask those air traffic controllers — but it may be the smart move in a nation of sleep-deprived workers. Just over 40 percent of workers said they would take naps during the workday if space were provided, according to an IBOPE Zogby International poll.

Workplace naps have a renewing effect, some studies show.
Respondents to the June 2-6 poll of 2,376 adults also showed that 47 percent reported not getting enough sleep. A few companies provide workers with space for naps or allow them to catch a few Z’s in their workspace, and some studies have shown that such breaks have a renewing effect.

Regardless of whether doze time is approved, the survey found that 13 percent said they napped on most days, with 26 percent acknowledging at least one nap a week. Only 21 percent said they never napped.

Of the adults polled, 42 percent said a half hour is the best amount of time to nap, and half said they had more energy after a nap. The nappers do experience guilt, with 6 percent reporting they usually felt guilty after a nap and 23 percent reporting they sometimes felt guilt.
