10-15 minute cigarette breaks are so common in corporate life. It gives some extra time outside of the office than non-smoking employees.
Marketing firm Piala Inc. in Japan, a country where smoking is deeply ingrained into the culture, decided to do something about it.
After a non-smoking employee submitted a complaint about how smoke breaks were affecting productivity, the company made a change to its paid time off policy.
The company granted non-smoking staff an additional six days off each year to make up for the time smokers take for cigarette breaks.
So, instead of penalising employees and coercing them to quit, Piala is incentivizing non-smoking.
Wouldn’t it be wonderful of this model is adopted in India also
