How fatigued employees affect your business

The long-term impact of sleep deprivation on employees is real and tangible. It is estimated that 30% of employees sleep fewer than six hours a night. This accumulation of sleep debt can lead to less energy, poorer cognitive function, less productivity, and a decreased ability to cope with stress in the workplace.

This infographic from the Pulse Institute demonstrates the challenges to workplace productivity that exist when employees are not sufficiently rested, including:

  • 23% reduced concentration
  • 18% reduced memory function
  • 9% increased difficulty in performing work or volunteer tasks

Fatigued workers contribute to on the job errors – the cost of which affects an organization’s performance, safety and bottom line. What are you doing to address fatigue in your workforce?
