We may not want to admit it, but the amount of sleep we get affects how productive we can be at our job. Imagine a time when you didn't get adequate sleep. We've all been there. How "with it" were you the next day? Were you irritable or crabby? Did you use lack of sleep as an excuse for not getting something done on time or correctly? In most cases, the lack of sleep was preventable and you owe it to your people to show up every day rested and prepared for impact. It doesn't matter if you're an assembly line press operator or if you are a high level executive making key decisions that affect the lives of everyone within the organization.
There are a couple of ways to address the issue of sleep deprivation that I've found in my experience.
One is Employee Education about productive sleep habits. We've created materials for posting in the workplace encouraging healthy sleep.
The second is creating a Culture that encourages productive sleep habits. If we can get the conversation going around healthy sleep in addition to how the local sports team did last night, imagine the impact.
Getting productive sleep and creating healthy sleep habits is vital over the long haul. Creating an environment where sleeping enough is thought highly of and talked about will separate your organization from your competitors. The world of business is changing.
