Poor sleep is hitting work
ONE in four workers believes their performance is being affected because they have a bad night’s sleep, according to a new study.
A survey of 1,300 workers by jobs site CV- Library found that a quarter feel exhausted every day. Most of those questioned would like to have up to eight hours of sleep a night, but only achieve between five and seven.
Lee Biggins, managing director of CV- Library, said: “There are many factors that can affect your performance at work and I’m sure we’re all familiar with the negative feelings that can follow a bad night’s sleep.
“While this is manageable every now and again, it can quickly become all- consuming if not dealt with properly.
“It could be worth talking to your employer to see if there’s anything that can be done to make the working day that little bit easier. For example, being able to work from home if you’re not feeling 100 per cent, or taking an earlier lunch break if you’re in need of some fresh air, are just small steps that can make a big difference.”
