Insufficient sleep causes the UK to lose £40 billion a year (1.86% of the UK GDP) according to a 2016 study by RAND “Why sleep matters — the economic costs of insufficient sleep”.

Someone who sleeps less than 6 hours per night takes an additional 6 days off work compared to a worker sleeping 7-9 hours per night.

There has been recent media interest in the importance of wellbeing both individually and in the workplace. A Chartered Institute of Personnel Directors (CIPD) survey found that the number of people suffering from mental health problems at work (including anxiety, stress and depression) has risen from a quarter to a third over the past five years. Despite this, fewer than one in 10 of UK organisations have a standalone wellbeing strategy.
