Corporate Sleep Wellness Programs
Why is sleep wellness important?
The importance of sleep and its effect on overall wellness has been extensively studied and is well understood. When it comes to the workplace, sleep and work performance are directly related. As sleep health and wellness programs are promoted in the workplace, there are numerous positive outcomes – productivity improves, accidents are less likely to occur, employee satisfaction rates increase – all of which create a better working environment.
Dr. Samit Malhotra is a Stanford University trained sleep medicine specialist practicing in Greenwich, CT with a corporate sleep wellness program that addresses why sleep is important, the risks of sleep deprivation, the signs and symptoms of various sleep disorders, including obstructive sleep apnea, narcolepsy, shift work disorder and jet lag, as well as effective treatment and coping strategies.
With our step-wise process that helps assess one’s sleep environment and habits, we can tease out areas that may contribute to poor quality sleep and low productivity. We empower employees with a better understanding of sleep and set them on the path to a truly healthier lifestyle, wherein they are able to achieve deeper, more restorative sleep.
Sleep quality creates benefits for employee health, performance, and productivity. Our corporate wellness program is designed to meet the personal needs of your company, keeping employees sleeping and feeling their best.

This presentation will set the stage for a healthy exchange of information regarding one’s sleep habits and what can be done to improve them.
Comprehensive Sleep Evaluation
- Screening: Each employee will be provided a screening questionnaire that addresses their medical history and their sleep disorder risk factors, along with a two-week sleep diary.
- Interview: Each employee will undergo an in-office interview focusing on sleep environment, sleep habits and other aspects of sleep that are essential in the diagnosis of sleep disorders.
- Physical exam: Employees will receive a detailed and thorough evaluation of the airway geared to determine the cause of interruptions in sleep, resulting in chronic sleep deprivation.
- Review of sleep wearables: Dr. Malhotra will review two-week data from patients’ sleep wearables (e.g. Fitbit, Jawbone) and make an assessment regarding possible abnormalities and recommendations for improvements.
- Home sleep testing: If a sleep disorder is suspected, an at-home sleep study can be performed in order to collect two nights of objective sleep data to make an accurate diagnosis.
Web-based telesleep appointments will be set up, dedicated to reviewing the results of the home sleep study and following up with other treatment recommendations.
These services will be covered as a package for employees under the corporate wellness program. Employees needing additional services may pay out of pocket or submit claims to their health insurance carriers.
