Why executives need to wake up to the importance of sleep?
When employees are irritable, make bad decisions or seem unfocused or unmotivated, it’s common to blame their behaviour on poor training, workplace politics or problems in the working environment. But the underlying issue could be much simpler: a lack of sleep.
Our research has found that lack of sleep may trigger problems ranging from workplace performance difficulties to emotional and physical health issues. These problems can affect people of all ages and levels in a business, with significant consequences for co-workers, teams and the overall organisation.
