Estimates of Economic Gain based on LEO intervention

  • Depression:

    • $5,914 – $6,419 lost per employee per year due to depression 1, 3, 7

    • LEO impact estimate: 42% reduction in depression multiplied by $5,914 - $6,419 saved = $2,483 - $2,696 gain per employee per year

  • Sleep:

    • $1,967 – $2,280 in productivity lost per employee per year due to sleep deprivation 2, 4, 5

    • LEO impact estimate: 40% improvement in sleep multiplied by $1,967 - $2,280 saved = $787 - $912 gain per employee per year

Total economic gain for sleep improvement + depression reduction alone =

$3270-$3608 per employee per year
