With busy schedules and juggling kids, school, work, and a gazillion other things, it's no wonder that so many workers are running on empty. Once a badge of honor, sleep deprivation is taking on its toll on work productivity and employee performance. In fact, research shows that lack of sleep can have many dangerous consequences both for the person lacking sleep and for those around them. Dr. Phil Gehrman, an expert in sleep disorders at the University of Pennsylvania and Philadelphia VA Medical Center, is our guest and explores how sleep apnea, sleep disorders, and even insomnia impact not only our physical and mental health, but our ability to get work done.

During this episode, we’ll explore topics like:

  • Why sleep is not just a family affair, but a business one too.
  • How sleeping at work can make employees more productive
  • How to mitigate the negative impact of working from home on good sleep
  • How employers can get employees to perform better by sleeping more
  • What sleep will look like in the metaverse
