Sleep Tips for Employers and Employees

Getting more sleep may be easier said the done in today's hyper-competitive, no-downtime society.

Still, employers can, and should, take steps to make sure that workers are getting the appropriate amount of sleep. This may mean tweaking night shift schedules and placing limits on how many nights a person can work in a row, Luckhaupt says.

Employee wellness initiatives should also include education about a healthy sleep routine.

This mean encouraging workers to:

  •     Go to bed at the same time each day or night.
  •     Create a relaxing bedroom environment that is conducive to sleep.
  •     Avoid reading or watching TV in bed.
  •     Avoid large meals before bed.
  •     Turn off their mobile phone or PDA before sleep.
