Lack of Sleep Could Be Costing You Wages

It's no secret that lack of sleep can prove physically, mentally and emotionally detrimental. But financially?

A recent article on the Advisory Board cites research from the University of California-San Diego concluding that — for the sleep-deprived — adding an hour to the average amount of sleep per night increased wages by 16%.

Lack of sleep diminishes the capacity of cognitive strengths in high demand by employers, including:
  • Creative thinking
  • Adapting to change
  • Attention to detail
  • Ability to multitask

With the recommended eight hours of sleep every night, we improve in areas employers value most - and are willing to pay for.
