LawJobsPipeline.com – Law Jobs – The increasingly important area of work / life balance has seen Kilpatrick Stockton in Raleigh put in place a “power room”, which is not a place for high-stakes deal-doing, but rather a place for naps to be taken. The windowless room has a couch, recliner, blanket, lamp, coffee table and a door. The sign outside says “Shhhhhhh. I’m in here snoozing.”
There are no strict rules to use of the room. You don’t have to sleep. Typically, the users disappear for 10 – 20 minutes. What Kilpatrick Stockton’s move does show is the increasing trend towards firms adopting more innovative ways of providing fringe benefits and lifestyle accomodation for their partners and employees.
