Insufficient sleep not only impacts worker safety and health but employee productivity and morale.
Atlanta, Georgia (PRWEB) July 11, 2017
Dr. Jeffrey Durmer, sleep expert and co-founder of FusionHealth, and Nancy Rothstein, Director of Corporate Sleep Programs at CIRCADIAN, will host a joint webinar on the underlying risks and true costs of poor sleep for employers. Watch live on Tuesday, July 18, 2017 at 2:00pm EST as the two sleep experts discuss how costly the impact of sleep deprivation is at all levels of the organization.
Today, nearly half of American workers report having trouble sleeping, many running on between 5 and 6 hours of sleep a day or less. As a result, workers are at an increased risk of being in an accident and/or experiencing health issues, costing U.S. employers up to $136 billion per year. Insufficient sleep not only impacts worker safety and health but employee productivity and morale, according to recent studies and analysis by Penn State University, Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and others.
The live webinar taking place on Tuesday, July 18 will focus on the primary drivers of insufficient sleep in the workforce; the impact of sleep deprivation at all levels of the organization; and the employer’s role in promoting sleep and providing solutions to resolve and prevent sleep problems.
