Improving Performance: Is As Easy As A Goodnight’s Sleep

Webinar

Many employers overlook the link between poor sleep, absenteeism, declining productivity and increasing healthcare costs. Those who address poor sleep breathing health can make a real difference in the lives and productivity of their employees.

Restful sleep is vital to health and performance. Recent studies in neuroscience have concluded that the single most important factor in maintaining a healthy brain and body as we age is to get enough restful sleep. Insufficient sleep has adverse health consequences, threatening our brain, heart and immune system.

Poor sleep effects organizations as it impacts performance, safety, and the overall bottom-line. According to The Center for Disease Control and Prevention a third of US workers get less than 6 hours of sleep each night, costing businesses more than $63 billion annually in lost productivity. A 1,000-employee employer can expect to lose more than $1 million annually due to fatigue. In fact, individuals who go undiagnosed cost employers an additional $3,200 - $4,000 per year in added healthcare costs. Employees with poor sleep habits or those who suffer from more serious sleep disorders have difficulty concentrating, react slowly and have a higher risk of accidents (13% of workplace injuries can be attributed to fatigue).

What’s the solution? Offer programs that teach and empower employees how to optimize their sleep for maximal alertness, focus and overall good health. By prioritizing their sleep, they will begin their journey to better days as a result of more restful nights.

You’ll learn:

  • The Sleep Health Paradigm
  • The Science of sleep
  • The dark side of sleep – Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA)
  • The health and wellness benefit of sleep on performance and the bottom-line
  • How addressing sleep health spans the Wellness Continuum
