Sleep deprivation is a productivity killer

According to different researches, the short-term productivity gains from skipping sleep to work are quickly washed away by the detrimental effects of sleep deprivation on the mood of your employees, ability to focus, and access to higher-level brain functions for days to come. Skipping sleep slows the ability to process information and problem solve, kills creativity, and catapults stress levels and emotional reactivity. A recent survey of Inc. 500 CEOs found that half of them are sleeping less than six hours a night. And the problem doesn’t stop at the top. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, a third of U.S. workers get less than six hours of sleep each night, and sleep deprivation costs U.S. businesses more than $63 billion annually in lost productivity.
