The only way to fight a personal problem is with personal attention. Health by Design's individual coaching is one of the most effective defenses against fatigue in your workplace. 

Exercise habits, nutrition, and sleep patterns are the most significant determinants of fatigue management. Unfortunately, when you are fatigued, often the first things you do are skip exercise and seek comfort foods.

Do you see the negative loop? Fatigue is unique and personal. It can have different effects on people under varying circumstances. By educating your employees to recognise their personal responses to fatigue and stress on an individual level, and then provide them with corrective behaviours to counteract the negative effects, you not only improve their energy and work performance, but you also help them improve their health and life satisfaction.  

You are only as strong as your weakest link. 

Being awake for 20 hours impairs performance to the same level as having a 0.1 blood alcohol content.

Join the dots

How productive and safe would you feel if half of your workforce was intoxicated?

Fatigue reduces the ability to concentrate. It slows productivity and increases error rates. In fact the symptoms of fatigue are very similar to alcohol intoxication.

There's no simple fix for fatigue and the optimal prescription for individual energy management is very personal. Exercise habits, food type and meal timing, sleep patterns, and even aspects such as your posture or hormones can all have an impact on energy levels and fatigue management.

Optimal fatigue management is not about drinking more coffee, sleeping more, or working less; it's about aligning physical, emotional, and mental health and lifestyle habits.

A comprehensive approach to helping your employees understand and address their individual needs to reduce fatigue improves overall employee health, safety, and productivity while also boosting employee job satisfaction.
