Insomnia among working-age people has increased – stress has a sensitive effect on sleep, and it can be seen in these statistics and at occupational health receptions. The overheating of life, the demands of working life, addictive smart devices and the worrying world situation affect sleep in particular for some of us.
Temporary insomnia is indeed a part of ordinary life, but prolonged insomnia affects not only private life but also especially work ability and work productivity.
The quality and quantity of sleep are vital for surviving at work
Insomnia is a natural reaction, especially during sudden life changes or when work stress accumulates. In thinking work, the quality and quantity of sleep are vital for coping at work and for maintaining and improving the concentration, creativity and problem-solving skills required in thinking work. Offering sleep groups to staff is popular, as better nights of sleep are directly reflected in the improvement of employees’ performance and problem-solving abilities and increased productivity.
A way to create the conditions for success at work by improving sleep

“I’m incredibly proud of all of us – we accomplished a lot. Together we were able to build an atmosphere of trust, openness, where it was easy for us to handle things. My own inner energy is now also at a better level thanks to the reforms of this process. The benefits of the development process for us were e.g. the following: the systematicity and focus of our work has strengthened, through the renewal we also made better use of our differences with the whole organization in mind. As a management team, we understand and know each other better now and are so-called on the same page.”
