Mattress Online launches sleep ambassador initiative
Mattress Online has rolled out a new programme to tackle sleep-related issues in the workplace.
Working in collaboration with The Sleep Charity, the retailer has launched a workplace sleep ambassador initiative that also aims to boost mental and physical health. In addition, personal assistant Tracy Browne has been appointed as its first Sleep Ambassador after she volunteered for the role and completed The Sleep Charity’s online training scheme.
Browne will promote sleep wellbeing and encourage colleagues to talk about sleep and its importance to a healthy body and mind.
Mattress Online chief executive Steve Adams explained: “As a mattress retailer supplying the biggest brands to hundreds of thousands of homes, we’re used to helping our customers achieve a good night’s sleep.
“The health of our hard-working team at Mattress Online is equally important. Lack of quality sleep can affect employee engagement, stress and productivity levels. It affects mental and physical health.
“We want to open up conversations around sleep and develop a culture where our team can talk, share issues and support each other. We plan to train more ambassadors in the next few months.”
Based in Rotherham, Mattress Online has seen its turnover climb to £34.5 million in the past year.
