Company Gives Non-Smoker Employees Extra Days Off
Do you work somewhere that allows employees to smoke whenever they want? As you can imagine, all those smoke breaks throughout the day really add up.
According to NBC25, A Japanese company has started giving its non-smoking employees extra paid leave to compensate them for their co-workers’ cigarette breaks.
Tokyo’s Piala Inc. now gives its non-smoking staff six extra days of paid holidays annually after they complained about the firm’s smoking policy.
I'm surprised more companies don't do this for their non-smoking employees. Think about, If Chris Monroe smokes 8 cigarettes a day, that adds up to around 45-60 minutes every day. That's nearly 5 hours a week that is dedicated to just smoking! If you really do the math, it's insane how much time smokers waste during work.
I don't smoke so I really love the idea of this...seems fair to me.
