How sleep-deprivation affects workplace
Sleep is very important. It’s vital for your physical, emotional and mental well-being. It has also a great impact on your performance at work.
The outcomes of workforces being sleep-deprived can be serious. Nuclear meltdowns and disasters in Three Mile Island and Chernobyl, Exxon Valdez oil spill and Challenger shuttle disasters were all influenced by decisions made by sleepy staff.
Sleep-deprivation can also seriously affect concentration, self-awareness, multi-tasking and decision-making.
All of the above costs organizations 2,280 USD a year per sleep-deprived worker. That’s why it is so important to create an environment where all workers are rested and perform at their peak.

Though the design has the right idea in mind, the visual communication hinders the message. All things considered, we'd give this a D+.
