[su_dropcap style=”default” size=”3″ class=””]W[/su_dropcap]ellness centers are not exclusive to individual private businesses; commercial developers and investors looking to add an amenity to  increase tenant acquisition and retention or upgrade current building facilities would find a napnook to be a perfect fit.

This is article 3 of a 3 part series. Be sure to read our related posts:


Why Naps Are So Important

According to Arianna Huffington’s video above on “Why Naps Are So Important”, napping is essentially a performance enhancement tool. With that in mind there are infinite amenity options that many commercial developers offer to their tenants today.

However, only health and wellness focused amenities materially contribute to a company’s ROI. We believe that is the dominant selling point to prospective and existing tenants and that is the category where napnook lies (pun intended).

Where is the Value?

In our previous post, Why focus on Sleep Health as an Office Amenity?, we briefly discussed the value of a napnook to prospective and existing tenants. Next we will discuss some high-level statistics that show what companies are currently struggling with. By identifying business pain points and offering a solution, commercial developers have a value proposition to existing and prospective tenants.

According to Gallup, 70% of employees are disengaged at work. This is costing companies upwards of $550 billion each year!

Why? Well this is the crux of napnook’s white paper: “Combating Employee Disengagement through Sleep Health and Wellness”

The short of it is that the most successful indicator of employee productivity is well-being; essentially allowing employees to bring their best selves to work every day. So, what is the #1 reason employees respond would allow them to be more productive and focus at work? SLEEP! Of course!

Many people are simply unable to get the recommended 7-9 hours of sleep per night, so providing a place to recover and recharge becomes just as effective.

Value to the Business

Businesses committed to solving employee disengagement can translate this investment into a huge payback:

  • Company stock outperforms competitors in the S&P by 2X
  • Businesses are 22% more profitable
  • Employers are able to put 2.1 working hours back on the clock
  • Recovery productivity losses specifically due to fatigue equate to $2000 per employee each year
  • Significant healthcare savings
  • Reduced presenteeism


Value to the Employee

Financially, there is much to gain for companies that have engaged and well-rested employees, but what is the value to the employee?

These benefits are expressed in greater detail in napnook’s white paper: “Combating Employee Disengagement through Sleep Health and Wellness”; essentially, well-rested employees are able to focus, make better use of time and energy, be more productive and make better decisions. Sleep also impacts weight, executive function, stress, and many other mental, emotional, and physical faculties.

This concludes our three part series on the value of office amenities, specifically focused on sleep health to commercial developers, employers, and employees. Remember, positive sustainable habits, such as sufficient sleep, do not only recover employee engagement and well-being, but they also boost company profitability and cost savings. There’s no question that employees who bring their best selves to work are more focused and productive. A company focused on the well-being of its employees is strategically positioned for long-term success.
