Good sleep is not only good for your employees, it’s good for your bottom line.
Absenteeism and presenteeism (being at work but not fully functioning), workplace accidents and expensive mistakes are often a result of fatigue – which is typically the result of sleep deprivation.
One-third of life involves sleep, yet a third of the population suffers from chronic sleep disorders, be that insomnia or another sleep disorder.
Compared to healthy employees, sleep-deprived individuals:
- have increased sick days and absenteeism
- are less productive
- are less communicative
- are more argumentative/conflicting
- provide lower quality customer service
- have an increased likelihood of accidents and errors
- have difficulty learning and memorizing things
- retain fewer facts
- are often in a poor or depressed mood
- have lower morale
- take greater risks
Did you know?
Four or more nights of fewer than 7 hours’ sleep a night is the equivalent of 1 whole night of no sleep.
One whole night with no sleep can affect a person’s performance for up to two weeks.
