Cost of Fatigue in the Workplace

  •  

    ​Fatigue is estimated to cost employers about $136 billion a year in health-related lost productivity, and more than 70 million Americans suffer from a sleep disorder.

    But the cost of fatigue is not just measured in lost productivity. Chronic sleep deprivation also causes depression, obesity, cardiovascular disease and a host of other illnesses.

    In the workplace, fatigue and sleepiness – caused by sleep disorders, shift work and sleep deprivation – contribute to:

    • Absenteeism

    • Presenteeism (poor performance at work)

    • Occupational injuries

    • Workplace accidents

     

    It's a big problem that few people spend time thinking about. But recently, industry leaders have begun drawing attention to this issue, and employers are in an ideal position to educate employees on how to stay healthier by getting a good night's sleep.

      Some employers have come to realize that investing in employee well being  by offering meditation rooms and nap pods will end up benefitting both the                business and the employee.  Nike, Google, Reboot and many others have have invested in employee well being.   We have two NeuroSpa units, one for rent            and one inside the Centre for clients to try and will be stepping out into the community offering mobile services and NeuroSpa sessions.
