A half-day workplace workshop with Karina Smith and Gill Stannard
Every business wants their employees to be switched on, happy and productive – and we know the magic ingredient that helps create this.
Compelling scientific research proves a well rested individual makes sounder business decisions, has better learning and memory capacity, and is physically and emotionally healthier.
Let’s face it, when we’re tired, under slept or been on the go for more than 16 hours most of us are less creative and take longer to complete simple, let alone complex, tasks. We are also less able to work well collaboratively which can impact team effectiveness and lead to a less dynamic work environment.
Research proves around 50% of all workers are sleep deprived and this comes at a huge cost. Absenteeism alone has a $7 billion annual price tag, that’s around $1,000 per employee a year.
In this interactive workshop, participants will discover:
- The biomechanics of rest
- How rest benefits all aspects of their life
- Ways to become well rested, within their individual circumstances
The program includes:
- Current research around rest and impact on workplace participation
- Personal and workplace reflections
- Experiential activities
- Each individual devise their own Rest Kit and resources to implement change
