After several years of recognizing sleep’s role in productivity and health-care costs, employers are providing tools to improve sleep. As a result, everyone can now take advantage of new hardware and apps to affect behavioral changes.
“As we started expanding into bigger companies, the feedback we were getting is ‘I only have intermittent sleep problems — can I get content or education?’ ” said John Letter, [SleepCharge] president and chief operating officer, leading to more education tools, a personalized behavior change app, and more access to behavioral health or medical experts.
“Sleep draws the attention of employers because unlike mental health issues, there isn’t stigma surrounding it. As a result, it’s an easier way to engage people about their overall health. Everyone wants to talk about sleep.”
