Working in partnership with employees, employers can take a positive, proactive approach to support sleep and recovery in the workplace, with a strong emphasis on the prevention of problem.
Our sleep habits are particularly personal and it can be difficult to have a conversation about sleep in a workplace setting. But it is critical for organisations to understand the impact of sleep and recovery for the health and wellbeing of employees and the implications for productivity.
