The Scottish Executive (SE) hopes to improve innovation and productivity in
meetings by employing masseurs to ease the burden of keeping Scotland Brave.
It is using the Capita Meeting Centre in Edinburgh. Every meeting has its
own resident holistic therapist and massage expert, which is intended to
refocus delegates and create a more productive environment.
Stress is high on the agenda as costs of the SE parliament building have
rocketed past £440m.
"Mental exhaustion and a depleted sense of focus are the two greatest
threats to business meetings," said Paul Norman, Capita’s owner.
"People do not realise just how stressful the meeting room is."
