How sleep fuels performance

A WorkWell podcast with Jeff Kahn

Why getting a good night’s rest is vital to well-being

How are you sleeping?

Sleep is foundational to your well-being and vital to your health. When you get the sleep your body needs, you can perform at your best. But despite its importance, our society and workplace culture still favor busyness and sleep deprivation over quality rest and recovery. We need to reframe our perspective on sleep to see it for what it really is – the ultimate performance enhancer.

On this episode, Deloitte chief well-being officer Jen Fisher talks with Jeff Kahn, co-founder and CEO of Rise Science, a sleep technology company that uses science and data to improve sleep.

I think today the common thinking is that sleep is up there with nutrition and fitness and mindfulness. That they're all pillars of wellness. And I think this idea is well intentioned but wrong. When you look at what's affecting all of those areas, the way to think about sleep, is it's actually this foundational element that you're building a house of wellness and high functioning on top of.
