Why do we overvalue underslept employees?

We have all seen employees who are congratulated for the long hours they work, often at the expense of enough sleep. Studies show that shorter sleep predicts both a lower work rate and slower completion of basic tasks.

Evidence continues to demonstrate that sleepy employees are less productive and generate fewer ideas and accurate solutions to problems.

Employees who can improve their sleep with good education have demonstrated, among others, the following improvements-

  • 4.9 times more likely to feel motivated to go to work
  • 1.9 times more likely to be satisfied with their job
  • 1.5 times more likely to be satisfied with their performance.
