4 key takeaway’s from this video:

  1. Most people need 7 to 9 hours of sleep per night (National Sleep Foundation).
  2. 30% (40.6M) of workers are getting 6 hours or less hours per night of sleep (Center of Disease Control).
  3. Sleep-deprived American workers ultimately cost their employers $63 billion in lost productivity (2011 Harvard Medical School study).
  4. Insomniacs lose about 7.8 days of productivity per year. No higher levels of absenteeism but have lower levels of “presenteeism, which is when you come to work but are not operating at peak performance.
