Why this Japanese company is paying its employees to get a full night's sleep

Japanese wedding organisers, Crazy Inc, have implemented a new scheme that rewards employees for getting at least six hours sleep for five days a week – the Economic Times reports.

Employees working for Crazy Inc will receive points for sleeping the optimum number of hours. These points can be exchanged for food in the cafeteria which can translate to to as much as £430 (64,000 yen) per year.
