Health and Wellbeing – The hidden problem of sleep deprivation

Welcome to the December issue of the Global Payroll Association magazine. No matter which hemisphere you happen to be in and whether you’re now enjoying summer or winter, it’s always a good time to show a little concern for, and interest in, staff
and colleagues – especially as the Christmas festive season is nearly upon us (if you celebrate it, that is).

So with that mind, you might be interested to know that more than a third of workers are struggling to get a good night’s sleep these days due to everything from the blue screens on their mobile devices stimulating them before bedtime to high levels of stress. But the
problem goes deeper than people just feeling a bit tired and dropping off at their desks after lunch as sleeplessness can contribute to all manner of medical conditions ranging from heart disease to diabetes.

As a result, Christine Husbands of RedArc Nurses has explored the impact of this largely hidden workplace challenge and provides some pointers as to what you might be able to do about it and how you might be able to help.
