Sleep Reset, a digital sleep program, has launched an employers program aimed at improving sleep health in the workplace. The program is designed to equip organizations, particularly those within the healthcare industry, with tools and resources to prioritize their employees’ well-being.

Insomnia is a widespread sleep disorder in the United States and is particularly acute within the healthcare sector, where high-stress conditions and demanding shift schedules result in over 70% of healthcare workers reporting insomnia symptoms, according to a release from Sleep Reset. 

For employers, the repercussions of sleep deprivation go beyond having fatigued employees. Sleep-deprived healthcare professionals face an increased risk of mistakes and accidents, as well as burnout and productivity loss.

“Our employers program is a strategic initiative designed to empower organizations to prioritize the sleep health of their teams. By doing so, they can mitigate the risks and healthcare costs associated with sleep deprivation, leading to a safer, more productive work environment,” says Yunha Kim, founder and CEO of Sleep Reset, in a release.

In a peer-reviewed study, Sleep Reset members increased their total sleep time by an average of 85 minutes. In addition, they took 53% less time to fall asleep and experienced half less awakenings at night. 

Sleep Reset was designed with sleep experts from Stanford University, Yale University’s School of Medicine, and the University of Arizona’s Sleep and Health Research Program.
