Management

Nina, the director of marketing, was in a hurry early one afternoon to get back to the office to finalize her proposed budget for the upcoming fiscal year. Instead of entering the building through the front door, she chose a side door. Shortly after she entered the building, she noticed a man lying still under the concrete stairwell. Frightened, she thought the person might be ill or dead. As Nina was about to call 911 from her smart phone, she noticed that the person on the floor was Rob, the social media marketing specialist. Nina nudged Rob with her foot, and he quickly awoke. “Rob, you frightened me. Why are you sleeping under the stairwell? Are you ill? Drunk? What’s your problem? You are behaving very unprofessionally.” “Sorry to frighten you, Nina,” said Rob. “As you know, my work is highly demanding and stressful. I have seen quite a few articles about how taking a nap during the working day can boost a person’s productivity and reduce stress. It’s so nice and quiet out here for napping. Also, the concrete is nice and cool.” “I’m only half-convinced that daytime naps make a worker more productive, and you can work on reducing your stress after hours. But can’t you find a better place to nap?” Rob replied, “I tried napping in my cubicle, but my manager said I looked lazy and unprofessional. I tried napping in the storeroom, but I got a few nasty looks from my coworkers. My decision was to nap in the stairwell. It’s been very comfortable, and I am usually more productive and less stressed for the rest of the day.” “I’ll have to think about this,” said Nina, as she proceeded into the building.
