Just when Mashable is giving us ‘Rise of the Mobile Workforce’ infographics (oh you know how we love infographics!) where we’re shown how 3 of 5 workers say they don’t need to be in the office anymore to be productive, they turn around and tease us about how awesome it is to work at some super hip and happening company where paid gym time, massages and organic meals are part of the regular interoffice culture. (don’t forget the hoodies and treehouses)
We all have lots of mobile gadgets and communication toys to work remote from anywhere, but what if that office provided a nap room and daily yoga? It’s not just for Yoga Journal and Google anymore! Mashable highlights 6 companies that provide super worker perks, and yoga seems to just come with the package at at least 3 of them:
Asana: Besides having a yoga word for a name, Asana (which is not a yoga startup, but a “mental flow” software company) founded by Facebook co-founder Dustin Moskovitz, offers in-house yoga: “There are group sessions open to all employees and +1s twice a week, and there are 1:1 yoga sessions with a private instructor, including options for massage.”
Clif (of the bar) of course offers regular yoga classes, along with an on-site 40-foot bouldering wall, a daycare center and racing and competition stipends.
Coloft: A shared workspace and community for startups, entrepreneurs and freelancers in Santa Monica and West LA enrolls their members in BetterWorks, a platform offering discounts at gyms and yoga studios among other money-saving, happiness-building perks.
Funny, this is exactly what it’s like to work at YogaDork. heh.
Do you work in an office that offers yoga? Are the perks worth it or would you rather be getting your productivity on in your yoga pants at home?
