Wakefit, a Bengaluru-based start-up, has introduced a ‘right to nap’, allowing employees to snooze between 2pm and 2.30pm. As part of the initiative, employee calendars will be blocked with official nap time. According to the company, an afternoon snooze increases worker productivity.

Wakefit announced the news on Twitter and LinkedIn. On Twitter, it posted two photos with the caption, "Official announcement." On LinkedIn, the firm said: "A regular meeting ending at 2pm: Let's 'sleep on it' for some time."
