Most employers and employees do not support the idea of a NAP during working hours. It is reported RIA Novosti with reference to the study of service Superjob.
The idea of sleep in the workplace was supported by 38 percent of respondents, against the Siesta made 44 percent. Employers who opposed the Siesta was 57 per cent, loyal to the initiative of 20 percent. Most of all the idea to sleep at work like the younger generation (among workers under 24 years it is supported by 51 percent of respondents) among respondents aged over 45 years — only a quarter.
The study is based on a survey of 500 HR managers and other representatives of personnel services of the enterprises and organizations responsible for the recruitment of 155 settlements and 1,6 thousand Russians constantly working over the age of 18 of the 338 settlements.
In mid-August, the Federation of independent trade unions has proposed to reduce the working week to four days without reducing wages. The Union said that such a measure can be a means to optimize the time of work and rest. The Ministry noted that the Russian legislation does not prevent employers to do this.
The government believes that the shorter working week can lead to a drop in productivity. Professor of the Department of labour and social policy, Institute of public administration and management (IIPAM) at Ranepa Alexander Shcherbakov believes that if you reduce the number of working days at the rate of 40 hours per week, then the Russians will have to work 10 hours a day.
Reducing the working week and sleep in the workplace fits into the framework of the national project «Productivity and support employment,» which runs until 2024.
