It's time for employers to "wake up" and recognise the importance of sleep.

Business in the Community in partnership with Public Health England (PHE) have produced the first ever sleep and recovery toolkit.  The toolkit offers insight and advice on addressing the increasingly damaging sleep-loss epidemic affecting the nation.

Key facts:

  • The annual cost of sleep loss to the UK is £30 billion
  • 200,000 working days lost in the UK each year due to insufficient sleep 
  • 1 in 3 people in the UK are affected by insomnia

Working in partnership with employees, employers can take a positive, preventative and pro-active approach to support sleep and recovery.

Business in the Community has partnered with Public Health England to produce an online interconnected suite of toolkits to help every organisation support the mental and physical health and wellbeing of its employees.

These materials are freely available and relevant to all employers, irrespective of your size, sector or familiarity with the subject. They are designed to help employers take positive actions to build a culture that champions good mental and physical health and provide a greater understanding of how to help those who need more support. For larger organisations, the toolkits are also useful resources to share with businesses in your supply chain and across your network.

Every organisation has an opportunity to support and develop a healthy workforce and it doesn’t need to be complicated – these toolkits will help you to understand and act, step by step. They address topics often shied away from in the workplace, and can provide the first step for an employer to encourage an open, healthy and supportive workplace.
