The importance of sleep

Sleep forms the very basis of a healthy lifestyle. It underpins everything we do, allowing us to function and perform to our very best in our day to day lives.

Sleep deprivation is a growing issue facing HR Managers and the role employers have in addressing this. Our increasingly stressed lifestyles and the rise in technology and mobile devices is making the distinction between work and home lives blurred so it’s becoming even more difficult to switch off and relax – which can cause sleep problems.

The costs associated with a lack of sleep are high…
