Long hours at the office and round-the-clock availability may be hallmarks of the modern workplace, but a sleep-deprived workforce can hurt your bottom line.

  • Roughly $63.2 billion per year in lost productivity
  • $ 3,200+ per employee, per year in total health costs
  • Nearly 5x higher Workers’ Compensation costs per employee, per year in industrial facilities
