Knowing good days begin with good nights, this first-of-its-kind sleep incentive program encourages employees to reap the healthy benefits gained from a good night’s sleep. SleepScore Labs has documented and studied millions of nights of sleep data and understands the importance of sleep and its direct effects on productivity, creativity and mental health stability in the workplace. As part of the “Sleep For Success” program, employees are provided access to SleepScore Premium within the app and for every night an employee tracks their sleep, they are awarded one dollar in compensation, the potential for shorter work days if team goals are met, plus additional prizes for highest average SleepScore and most sleep improvement over time.

“Our ‘Sleep For Success’ initiative allows us to practice what we preach and reward our employees by doing something that is so crucial to the mission of SleepScore Labs - sleep,” said Colin Lawler, CEO of SleepScore Labs. “We’re really putting our money where our mouth is and are excited to support our team members by taking their wellbeing seriously. Our goal is to serve as an example for other companies by showing what a solid foundation of sleep can do to impact productivity, employee happiness and health.”

Each year, the U.S. loses an equivalent of 1.23 million working days and suffers up to 411 billion dollars in economic losses due to insufficient sleep. 1 Additionally, 65% of workers report not getting enough sleep 2 and those who sleep an average of five to six hours a night suffer 19% more productivity loss compared to those who regularly got seven to eight hours of sleep. 3 While other companies provide awards to employees who bike, carpool or walk to work, SleepScore Labs is empowering its employees to take charge of their wellbeing by addressing the root cause of their overall health; sleep.
