Overall aim

This event will help managers and directors understand:

  • What is sleep and what can affect it
  • The impact of poor sleep on an organisation
  • How poor sleep affects employees' wellbeing
  • Practical steps to support employee sleep

Join Sleep Scotland as they shed light on a crucial aspect often overlooked in the third sector: Prioritising employee sleep for the wellbeing of your workforce.

Employees of charities are often some of the most dedicated, overworked, and under-rewarded individuals. While the third sector plays a critical role in addressing the challenges in society, the relentless pressures facing charities in the wake of COVID and the Cost of Living Crisis are leading to increased burnout and fatigue.

This seminar will explore the importance of creating a supportive environment in the workplace that promotes healthy sleep.

By focusing on the importance of sleep and its profound impact on wellbeing and performance, we aim to equip attendees with practical strategies to foster a sleep-friendly culture within their organisation, supporting employee wellbeing and the reduction of organisational risk.

This thought-provoking event is designed for managers and directors and is based on Sleep Scotland's innovative Sleep-friendly Employer initiative.
