Event description

Description

Join us for our latest Gravitate HR seminar in our Glasgow office situated on Buchanan Street. We are delighted to welcome Dr Leanne Fleming and Dr Aliyah Rehman from the University of Strathclyde Sleep Research Unit as guest speakers.

Leanne and Aliyah will reflect on their academic research in relation to how sleep can affect physical and mental health and, by extension, the impact that it can have on their working lives and the organisations that employ them. Four in ten people regularly get insufficient sleep and one in five sleep poorly most nights - this can result in poorer health and a lower level of daytime performance.

Although there is perhaps a greater awareness and understanding of mental health today than there was a few decades ago, it can still be a taboo subject and no employer is immune from the effects:

- 70 million sick days are lost in the UK to mental health issues

- 1 in 3 days absence are attributed to stress and anxiety

- £1035 is the average annual cost per employee due to mental health

This will be an interactive session where Leanne and Aliyah will discuss the associated research and the potential solutions open to individuals who do not get sufficient sleep, as well as receiving input from the audience.

A complimentary lunch will be provided. If you have any specific dietary requirements, please let us know by emailing cameron@gravitatehr.co.uk.
