What is your strategy to manage sleep problems in your organisation?
Dealing with sleep deprivation and insomnia effectively in the workplace is a big part of the overall wellbeing strategy that organisations are putting in place.
But when I speak to HR professionals, the general problem is that there are no guidelines yet as to how organisations should be dealing with this ever-increasing problem affecting their employees.
If you do just one thing, start with raising awareness about the problems and not just talk about ‘better sleep’ in such a general way.
If someone is really struggling with their sleep and daytime productivity, they need a completely different type of support than someone who just has the odd night of insufficient sleep.
This video is a short section from the Keynote Speech I have presented at SOMNEX | The Sleep Show in October this year.
I have pointed out what has been effective for the clients that I had the pleasure of working with in the past.
The reality is that a lot of people don’t get sufficient quality sleep, therefore not functioning at the best during the day. That in turn impacts your organisations in so many ways.
