Ask if they were feeling ok.
This. Or I'd hope that this is what they'd do If i were in this situation.
Report. People can die if you fall asleep where I work.
I most likely would not disturb, perhaps leave a note saying you've clocked them out, and to feel free to clock back in when they're ready to work... in a non harsh way. Maybe even call them later and remind them of vacation or sick time if they have it and maybe suggest a day off?
I'm all about not making a big deal for a first time offense, especially if they're a good employee.
Ask them if they're okay.
omg lol forever assuming this is at the place where I work now. I work in a casino. Falling asleep at the table would be beyond hilarious. Having said that, they would get fired.
Idk what I'd do as a supervisor, but when I was an intern at my current place of work another one of the interns would sleep at his desk EVERY SINGLE DAY and nobody ever said anything about it to him so as a coworker it was really annoying that he was getting paid the same amount as I was when I was working so hard and he was napping. So if you have more than that one employee you should say something to the sleeper because the other employees are probably annoyed about it. It doesn't have to be mean, just acknowledge that you are aware that she was sleeping.
The rules really vary workplace to workplace. At mine we had napping rooms. We also had gaming and other slack off rooms. No one cares so long as stuff gets done.
Can I work where you work please?
Switch over to the programming industry! It's exhausting work, but I think that's why it's pretty common for our workplaces to have these perks. I've even played beach volleyball while on the clock, two games a week.
You must work where my ex does. They have huge 65inch TVs and fooseball tables. They play video games and drink in the office.
I'm sorry; my jealousy is showing.
Well, our TVs weren't that big, but we had them and fooseball tables too. ;) I just looked up your profile and where I worked has another branch in the same city you're in, so it may actually be the same! IBM?
No, but my stepfather worked for them when I was a child! :)
I'd probably buy them a five hour energy and wake them up.
wake them up and tell them they can't be sleeping on the job. first I'd double check that it's not the break or lunch time though.
Gently wake them up and ask them if they were feeling OK. I've found people who I managed asleep, and this is what I've done. I've never had to do this multiple times to the same person, but we worked in IT, which is usually pretty interesting/requires a lot of focus.
Wake them up and ask if they were okay, then take it from there.
Let em' sleep. If they're falling asleep there, they probably need it!
Wake her/him surprisingly!
I'd wake them up and ask if they're OK.
But if it was a horribly slow day and our work wasn't inherently important and there was no danger of anything bad happening due to the person sleeping, I might just let them sleep until there was work to be done. Especially if the employee is otherwise awesome. I wouldn't want them to make a habit of it, but sometimes a little power nap can really recharge you when you're exhausted.
Wake them up and ask if they're feeling okay, probably send them home.
I'd probably wake them up gently and ask if they were feeling ok/getting enough sleep, and maybe ask if they want some coffee/tea before asking that they make sure not to let it happen again.
I used to work in a (very) large boiler plant. (4 boilers, each five-stories high.) We had a shift of four guys. It's hard to stay awake on graveyard shift, especially when there is nothing to do, which was 90% of the time. We had an old retired navy petty officer on the shift by the name of Smitty who could not tolerate anyone falling asleep. If someone did, Smitty would throw a firecracker under his chair.
wake them up, ask if they're feeling alright/need to leave and then tell them they need to make sure they get enough sleep or have a cup of coffee or something because that's not appropriate.
Even though I'm a caregiver, I'd be a little more forgiving depending on the worker. Our job is exhausting and unless you're a smoker, we don't get breaks.
i'd probably gently shake them on the shoulder and send them home/shout them a coffee if that'd work, if it was a real one off
It's normal for teachers to have a quick nap on their desks in the staff room at my workplace. It's very tiring working from 7am to ~4pm every day dealing with multiple huge classes (60+) of teenagers.
We also have a small napping room but it's dark and scary and only for female teachers (usually pregnant or old) and I've never napped there throughout my years of teaching there. I much prefer napping at my desk.
wake them up, ask them if they're ok. i wouldn't give them a hard time until it became routine or it was keeping them from getting their work done. if they were reception or something, i would.
I'd just give them a prod and see if they were alright.
Knowing the kids at my workplace, they'd probably have been out all night.
gently wake them and ask if they're feeling okay/sick... depending on their response, i'd probably be really light about it and be like "hey no worries, you can head home and finish up x tomorrow"
Ask them if he/she is feeling OK.
