Bek comes from a background in marketing and business strategy (ACIM), with a career expanding financial services, media, government and third sector. But first and foremost, she is a mum, and in 2021 she decided to join forces with her friend, fellow mum and now business partner, Emma, to build a company that specialises in supporting other parents. After using the service herself and realising its value, Emma trained to become a Sleep Consultant in 2020, prior to this she has an extensive background in teaching, family support services and child counselling.

Together, they are on a mission to ‘Make sleep the new normal’ for parents everywhere in order to prevent burnout, support positive physical, mental and social health outcomes, and enable more parents to return to or remain in the workforce, and they are challenging businesses to do the same.

Organisations work with Bek & Emma because for their easily-implementable strategies and services that can form part of any personal benefits package, offering support that their workforce value, and that has a tangible positive impact on the bottom line.

Sleep deprivation in the workplace: a wake-up call

The International Human Rights Framework recognises sleep deprivation as a form of torture due to its detrimental effects on a person’s health. On average 59% of parents sleep less than the recommended number of hours for the first six years of their child’s life, longer if they have multiple children. Parents currently make up 38% of the UK’s workforce, so up to 22% of your employees are likely trying to do a day’s work whilst feeling the effects of a very real, extremely damaging, but rarely spoken about condition. During this talk, we will cover: • What good sleep looks like • Why sleep is important & how it impacts our physical, mental & social health • The economic impact of sleep deprivation • Signs of poor sleep in the workforce • Likely pain points for parent employees We will encourage businesses to think about taking a more personal approach to their employee wellbeing offerings, paying attention to what really matters in maintaining a good work-life balance, introducing practical strategies that can help. As a result, attendees will be able to support more parents to successfully return to work, improve their physical, mental and social health outcomes and prevent parental burn-out.
