Mattress Online invests in staff wellbeing with The Sleep Geek

Mattress Online has turned to The Sleep Geek to help maintain its staff’s wellbeing.

The retailer is collaborating with sleep practitioner James Wilson to support and educate Mattress Online staff with sound sleep and wellbeing advice – helping them get to grips with the fundamentals of stress reduction and enjoying work to its fullest. 

He will then provide training to the company’s sales staff so they can help customers make the right choices.

‘After being on the hunt for a company that fitted with my ethos, I found Mattress Online and realised it had been right under my nose the whole time: here in my hometown of Rotherham. Sleep is a very personal experience for all, and it is important for Mattress Online that there is no one-size-fit-all approach to its work. I’m genetically a poor sleeper, so I know first-hand the challenges involved in getting the sleep you need. Having a better understanding of our own sleep, and access to simple and effective resources to help improve it, is so valuable for good mental health and wellbeing. This unique partnership invests in employee wellbeing and improving employee health, which will lead to better employee engagement, better performance and productivity, and the reduction of sickness absence. What Mattress Online is offering to its staff is so important. No other mattress brands in the UK, and possibly worldwide, are providing a service like this internally and I’m honoured to be working with it on this,’ says Wilson.

‘The past 18-months of Mattress Online has been all about growth. Now we’re concentrating on investing that back into our employees. Wellbeing is rooted deep into our values as a company. Staff are supported, valued, and empowered to have good work/life balance and good mental health. The next stage of this is our collaboration with James. It’s also important to us that we recommend products to customers based on what’s best for a better night’s sleep for them. Training by James will enable our staff to demystify the mattress buying process, unpicking the myths that are engrained in the sleep industry, while advising customers on how to sleep better,’ says Steve Adams, Mattress Online ceo.
