To kick goals at work you need to do some preparation first; it’s time to go back to sleep!

 

Research released by the A Future That Works campaign highlights the link between getting 8 of hours sleep and being more productive at work.

 

As covered in the Workplace Wellbeing report, the research found:

 

  •  54% of workers are not getting enough quality sleep
  •  83% of workers who are getting enough sleep are more satisfied with their physical wellbeing

 

What are the impacts of sleep on work?

 

  •  82% of workers who are getting enough sleep are more satisfied with their job
  •  37% of dissatisfied sleepers said they were either extremely or very stressed about work
  •  Workers who do not get enough sleep are more likely to look for a new job in the next 12 months

 

Support your staff to get the rest they need for success

 

Workplaces can play a role in helping their staff to get enough rest. Here are some tips to support your team to get the sleep they need, so they wake up ready for a successful day:

 

  •  Ensure staff workloads are manageable and that expectations are reasonable
  •  Keep a watch on overtime hours; long hours at work can minimise people’s sleep time
  •  Discourage staff from checking emails or doing work at home after hours
