Sleep Cycle’s Boot Camp is a four-week long, web-based sleep program developed in collaboration with sleep researcher Frida Rångtell, Ph.D. and psychologist Li Åslund, Ph.D. Each week a new sleep-related topic is introduced and includes course material in the form of videos, articles, coaching, exercises and challenges. The program is designed so participants use the Sleep Cycle app to better understand their sleeping habits, and to track how sleep is impacted through the exercises and challenges.
Sleep Cycle’s CEO Carl Johan Hederoth says:
“At Sleep Cycle we are well aware of the health benefits of good sleep, both at home and at work. In recent years, we have seen how the focus on sleep and health has steadily increased among employers and organizations, where people have begun to pay serious attention to the benefits of investing in sleep health. Developing a sleep program for companies is completely in line with our growth strategy and is an important step in supporting employers in paying attention to sleep health among their employees. We are delighted over the interest that Sleep Boot Camp has generated and the enthusiasm that our first customers have displayed in taking on this challenge.”
Sleep has an enormous impact on both our mental and physical health as well as our ability to perform well, privately and in our working life. Increasing research highlights lost productivity and thus increased costs in the workplace due to lack of sleep. In a survey of five OECD countries, it is estimated that approximately $ 680 billion is lost each year due to lack of sleep among employees1 and a third of the US population is considered to have severe sleep disorders2. Djurgårdens IF and Polestar are among the first to undergo Sleep Boot Camp and by doing so, highlight the importance of investing in sleep health.
Linn Johansson, HR Business Partner, Polestar:
“The health of our people is our top priority. We perform better if we are healthy, and we truly care about our employees physical, mental and social well-being. We believe that sleep and recovery is not just another piece of the well-being puzzle, it’s the foundation on which all good health resides.”
Viktor Helander, Strength and Conditioning Coach, Djurgårdens IF Fotboll:
"As important as the quality of our exercise and diet is to perform optimally and keep developing, equally important is the quality of our sleep. That's why we think it's crucial to invest time in sleep training for our players."
