Co-op chief executive tests out new sleep quality initiative

Co-op chief executive Steve Murrells joined night shift workers at the retailer’s Coventry depot last week as part of a new programme to help its 24-hour workforce understand how to improve the quality of their sleep.

Introduced in partnership with health charity Wellcome, the Night Club scheme aims to connect the Co-op’s army of shift workers with professional sleep experts to promote a greater understanding of the link between sleep health and mental well-being.

Delivered by public engagement consultancy The Liminal Space, Night Club is visiting all of the Co-op’s UK depots. Workers can take part in light-based experiments, chronotyping tests to establish their natural body clock, one-to-one consultations with sleep experts, and trials to show how eating at different times of the day can affect slumber.

Murrells said: “Our night shift colleagues play a vital role in ensuring our Co-op customers and members can buy what they want, when they want it. Their health and wellbeing is hugely important to us. We’re pleased to be able to bring the Night Club initiative to our depot colleagues so that together, we can improve their experience of work and their wellbeing.”
