5 Tips on How to Make Work Healthy: #5 Create a healthy recovery routine


Rest and recovery play a huge role in the overall health of any organization.


Good, restful sleep is essential for employees’ physical, mental and emotional well-being. Not getting enough sleep can make it harder to concentrate, reduce productivity and lead to mood swings, amongst other things. 


Therefore, fostering an environment that facilitates restful sleep is essential for any organization. But what might this involve? organizations can take steps to support well-rested employees such as limiting late-night email and chat applications, providing power naps or flexible work hours, and encouraging employees to take regular breaks. By doing these things, employers can help create a more productive, healthy and motivated workplace. 


Organizations can also use data to monitor employee sleep patterns and alert managers when employees are sleep-deprived. This data can then be used to modify workplace policies around overnight hours and workloads, if necessary. 


By supporting well-rested employees, organizations can benefit from increased productivity, job satisfaction and morale, and reduce the risk of health problems. It is therefore essential for any organization to recognise the importance of well-rested employees and take steps to foster the necessary environment for them to thrive.


Thus, organizations must adopt a proactive, integrated, and preventative approach to their employees’ health and well-being, and acknowledge that they are inextricably intertwined with rest and recovery.
