Opening Discussion Topic:
Is your organization losing money and opportunity to tired employees? A 2016 RAND study concluded that among the U.S. workforce a lack of sleep is costing employers about $411 billion, and a loss of 1.2 million working days per year. No workforce is as healthy, safe, resilient, or engaged when they’re tired. Given nearly half of American workers report they have trouble sleeping, poor sleep is an exhausting problem for all businesses.
During our Group Discussion, we’ll look to hear about any approaches you’re taking to help encourage your staff to get more – and higher quality – shut-eye. An example, reported in Fortune,* comes from Aetna, where they reward employees who get at least seven hours of sleep for 20 consecutive nights with $25. No doubt we’ll hear lots of other examples from our Featured Speaker, Jeffrey Durmer, MD/PhD, co-founder and Chief Medical Officer of FusionHealth, and one of the nation’s leading experts in applying the neuroscience of sleep and circadian rhythm biology to workplace fatigue and wellness programs.
Jeff will also present the keys to good sleep, and the downside (physical, mental; personal, corporate) for not getting it. And he’ll introduce us to FusionHealth’s innovative approach to using technology, the right meds, and digital coaches to help over 60,000 employees get a quality night’s sleep, every night.
Don’t sleep on it, RSVP today! And alert us to any other Hot Issues we should include during our Discussion.
