Will sleeping pods boost Manchester United’s productivity?


Something for the weekend…

Everyone has felt the full force of a workplace shake up, be it office moves or restructured benefits packages.

At Manchester United Football Club, it looks like new manager Louis Van Gaal is doing everything he can to motivate players to adapt to his regime with a new workplace benefit.

The team has enquired about putting 30 sleeping pods in at its Carrington training ground because Van Gaal wants all his football stars to spend more time there.

The pods could become a vital benefit to help the players’ wellbeing  because the coach plans to schedule in nighttime training sessions.

After a poor season last year and a need to boost the team’s productivity in the league, perhaps sleeping pods might just do the trick.
