Estimates of Economic Gain based on LEO intervention:

  • Depression:
    • $5,914 – $6,419 lost per employee per year due to depression1, 3, 7
    • LEO impact estimate: 25% reduction in depression multiplied by $5,914 – $6,419 saved = $1,381 – $1,604 gain per employee per year
  • Sleep:
    • $1,967 – $2,280 in productivity lost per employee per year due to sleep deprivation2, 4, 5
    • LEO impact estimate: 18% sleep improvement multiplied by $1,967 and $2,280 saved = $354.06 – $410.40 per employee per year gain
  • Total economic gain for sleep improvement + depression reduction alone = $1735 – $2,014 per employee per year
