A Japanese marketing company is giving its employees a very attractive reason to stay away from cigarettes.
Piala Inc., based in Tokyo, made the decision last month to give non-smoking employees an extra six paid days off every year. Their reasoning? To balance out the time smoking employees spend away from their desks on cigarette breaks each day.
According to the Japan Times, Piala CEO Takao Asuka said the idea came from an employee comment box submission at its office.
