Objectives: This study aimed to describe a workplace intervention to sensitize employees to sleep problems, and to evaluate the medium-term impact of this intervention on participants’ sleep status.
Methods: Employees of different sites (China, France, Spain, United Kingdom) of a multinational company were offered a face-to-face session on sleep hygiene with a health professional using a tablet application providing feedback by email. Data on sleep status were collected through an interactive questionnaire at baseline (N=834 participants) and at six-month follow-up (n=291, 34.9% retention). Descriptive statistics, a three-way ANOVA and a logistic regression model were performed.
Results:Sleep quality improved among followed-up participants. Statistically significant results concerned total sleep duration during week-end (P=0.046), sleep debt (P=0.019), sleep difficulties (P<0.001) and sleepiness (P=0.026).
Conclusions: Interventions blending face-to-face and web-based approaches show promise for effective promotion of sleep awareness at the workplace.
