One in six employees is struggling with serious sleep problems. Almost two-thirds of them operate therefore sometimes less well at work.

This is evident from an online survey by market researcher TNS Nipo among more than 3400 people in the netherlands. More than half of the employees affected by sleep disorders suffer from concentration problems (59 percent). A quarter makes mistakes due to the lack of a good night’s sleep.

That people lie awake, according to the study, commissioned by health insurer Zilveren Kruis was done, often through the work. A total of 49 percent of the respondents indicates that the sleepless nights come from worry about their jobs. People sleep poorly because they are too much work or the work not being able to let go. Or mulling over an unpleasant conversation with a colleague.

For men this percentage is 55 percent higher than in women (44 percent), which more often can’t sleep due to personal problems.
