Sure many of your co-workers take that short smoke break throughout the day but do you know how much work time that adds up to?
Well, a recent complaint from an employee about how productivity is affected by smoke breaks lead to an unofficial study by the CEO Takao Asuka.
After the conclusion of the study, it showed an average smoke break added up to 15 minutes per days and 6 days worth of work in a year.
Asuka and the company decided to reward the non-smoking staff with an extra six days worth of vacation time, since the smokers have their daily perks.
The policy was also put in effect since Japan is one of the largest markets for cigarette smoking and Asuka hopes this policy encourages his staff to quit smoking.
