One in Seven People Say They're Asleep on the Job

Creatas/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) -- Working hard or hardly working? One way or the other, some people are able to catch a few winks while on the job, according to a survey by Virgin Pulse Institute, which bills itself as an evidence-based organization that puts research to work to help employees and companies thrive.

In a poll of nearly 1,140 workers from three U.S. companies, 15 percent admit that they napped at work at least one day a week.

That’s likely because three out of four respondents complained about feeling tired during most of the work week.

With 30 percent complaining about their sleep quality, the Virgin Pulse Institute asked why people feel so tired all the time.

The wrong room or bed temperature was the number one complaint, followed by their partners’ sleeping issues, unwanted noise or light, problems with mattresses and kids causing disruptions.

Interestingly, only 10 percent blamed health issues for their lack of sleep.
