Sleeping on the job (07 Sep 2004)
Most of us come up with our best ideas when we are about to nod off, says a study. So is it time the boss put beds in the workplace?

With longer working hours and shrinking lunch breaks, is it any surprise that stressed British workers find their bed a more creative space than the office?

Some 30% of people have their best ideas in bed compared to just 11% who have them at their desk, according to research by the East of England Development Agency (EEDA).

It is calling for companies to install beds in the workplace, in an attempt to change the way we work for the better.
