A 2015 study of more than 4,000 working adults by Horizons Workforce Consulting shows that lack of sleep is associated with significantly lower satisfaction with life, health, work, and financial well being.  Yet only 40% of respondents indicate that most nights they get enough sleep to awaken refreshed. The impact of sleep works its way to the workplace. Poor sleepers have lower levels of work quality and productivity, are three times more likely to report feeling burned out by work and are six times more likely to report feeling unable to meet work requirements.  Almost one-third of respondents (31%) report that work worries and disruptions interfere with their sleep, and 41% report that they “often” or “very often” get sleepy at work.  Poor sleepers are significantly less resilient and optimistic and more stressed than good sleepers. Lack of sleep has a major impact on employees’ overall performance at work and quality of life. Although previously thought of as an issue outside of the realm of concern for employers, sleep is an issue employer need to address in order to improve employee well being and their bottom line.
