Sleep is essential for good health and wellbeing: better sleep is the biggest single contributor to living better. This toolkit has insight and advice for employers to address the increasingly damaging sleep-loss epidemic.
This is part of a suite of eight interconnected toolkits, produced by Business in the Community and Public Health England, to help every organisation support the mental and physical health and wellbeing of its employees. Each addresses a different aspect of workplace wellbeing, with a common thread of mental health running through them all. They’re freely available and designed to be relevant to employers across all sectors.
This one, on sleep and recovery, includes an overview of key issues to consider, with background information and detailed research on sleep and sleep deprivation, and their effects on people. There are lots of practical actions that employers can take to support good sleep, as well as links to further resources and case studies. It’s divided into sections on different topics with built-in navigation and links between them, so you can follow it step by step or go straight to the sections you want to know more about.
Our NHS People has created this website to help healthcare workers to take steps to maintain their physical and mental health, and overall wellbeing. This includes a free wellbeing support helpline, a 24/7 text alternative, and free mindfulness apps.
COVID-19 has highlighted the tremendous pressures on the NHS workforce. This infographic from NHS Employers provides a range of up-to-date key statistics and facts about workforce mental wellbeing in the workplace.
