As employers expect more out of workers, services to optimize productivity are becoming more common in cities worldwide.
In London, a new facility is offering naps and showers in the heart of the city to “recharge” workers. Launched earlier this month in Silicone Roundabout, Shoreditch, a creative and technology hub in London, Pop & Rest offers workers and commuters a pod to sleep or meditate in for £8 ($10) for half an hour.
WikiTribune will be visiting Pop & Rest on August 21.

Questions for Pop & Rest founders
