UK company to allow staff sleep at work in space pods during Olympics

London, Mon, 23 Apr 2012 ANI

London, April 23 (ANI): Staff at a London company will be given the choice to sleep at work during the Olympics, in a bid to avoid busy commutes.

Data services provider Interxion has installed space pods for employees to sleep during the Games, the Daily Mail reported.

Far from sleeping on the job engineers at the Brick Lane based firm in east London will be asked to stay behind and sleep in the claustrophobic capsules to avoid the rush hour.

And while other companies are set to offer staff the luxury of working from home during the Games the firm behind the capsules hope to get more workplaces on board.

Podtime, the firm behind the unusual cabins, are billing them as the perfect solution to the Olympics' congested commute.

On their official website they state "London businesses will be severely affected by the transport problems caused by the Olympics. Cost effective and versatile pods provide the best solution to this by allowing your staff to stay on site as necessary, in comfort and privacy."

Coming in a range of colours, the capsules made of polycarbonate, sell at anything from 1,375 pounds.

The stock models are fitted with either foam mattresses or a standard single mattress as well as a storage shelf, mirror and power points.

These types of capsules have been around for years, in hotels, but Interxion is thought to be among the first to have them stalled at the workplace. (ANI)
