Something for the weekend…
We all have our own ways of dealing with work-related stress.
Here at Employee Benefits, we are known to favour sweet treats as deadlines approach. But employees in Japan could soon experience a novel way of relieving stress at work thanks to Japanese designer Tomomi Sayuda, who has designed a role-playing kit for office workers.
The Mask of Soul kit involves employees wearing colourful cartoon-esque helmets to take on a new persona.
The idea has yet to receive commercial backing but prototype designs have been exhibited in art galleries.
Personally, I’m not sure how that would lower an individual’s stress levels, but I’m sure it would raise a few smiles among their colleagues.
