Seminars to focus on how sleep can be used to boost productivity
A webinar series that starts this month will focus on how sleep can be used to boost productivity and make workplaces more efficient.
Dorothy Bradshaw will deliver the sessions, hosted by the Women’s Resource Centre, from April 20.
A spokeswoman explained: “This three-part webinar series is intended to help leaders, managers and human resource professionals explore how sleep can be better leveraged as a competitive advantage for their organisations, in areas including productivity, expense reduction, employee retention and risk mitigation.”
Ms Bradshaw is a sleep specialist who provides support through her company, The 41st Wink.
The spokeswoman said that the course would cover topics such as how sleep is important to the success of a company and the quality of workers’ shut-eye.
She added that people who took part would be better able to consider what their company could do "to better leverage sleep as a competitive advantage“.
Ms Bradshaw's training includes how to address the sleep needs of adults, children and infants.
The spokeswoman said: “Like many other working parents, Dorothy has ‘been there’.
“She knows first-hand how critically important sleep can be for our physical, mental and emotional health, and she is passionate about helping families get the sleep they need.”
The sessions will run at midday on April 20 as well as May 4 and 18.
Part of the $75 cost for all three webinars will support the WRC.
