Never underestimate the power of a good night's sleep. According to a recent study by the Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine, fatigued workers cost U.S. employers $136.4 billion annually in health-related lost productivity - $101 billion more than non fatigued workers. Employees who are fatigued - defined as "a feeling of weariness, tiredness or lack of energy - averaged 5.6 hours per week in total lost productive time compared to about 3.3 hours in lost time by workers who were not fatigued.
