Sleep Deprivation’s Impact on Employee Productivity
April 18, 2017 / Corporate Wellness / Lindsey Hudson
With sleep loss costing the US $411 billion dollars annually and 76% of employees saying they feel tired many days of the week, we are in the crux of a sleep deprivation epidemic nationally. The importance of sleep for ourselves and our employees cannot be overstated – from influencing cognitive & physical performance, to protecting the immune system and influencing weight gain and aging. In addition, sleep deprivation increases the risk of business loss. Some of the most widely known catastrophes are associated with lack of sleep, including Chernobyl, 3 Mile Island and Exxon Valdez. It’s also ranked 3rd among our member interests behind being active and eating well.
