It’s been a culture for most companies to start work at the wee mornings of 9am but it’s been said that it shouldn’t be the case.

“Forcing staff to start work before 10am is tantamount to torture and is making employees ill, exhausted and stressed”, an Oxford University academic has claimed.

“Before the age of 55, the circadian rhythms of adults are completely out of sync with normal 9-to-6 working hours, which poses a “serious threat” to performance, mood and mental health.”

Dr Paul Kelley, of Oxford University, said there was a need for a huge societal change to move work and school starting times to fit with the natural body clock of humans.

It was studied that 10-year-old will not start focusing properly on their studies before 8.30am, while, a 16-year-old should start at 10am for best results and university students should start at 11am.

Dr Kelley said that his studies show that moving school times could raise grades by 10 per cent. He changed the school start day from 8.30am to 10am and found that the number of top grades rose by 19 per cent.

“This is a huge society issue,” Dr Kelley told the British Science a Festival in Bradford. “Staff should start at 10am. You don’t get back to (the 9am) starting point till 55. Staff are usually sleep-deprived. We’ve got a sleep-deprived society.”

“It is hugely damaging on the body’s systems because you are affecting physical, emotional and performance systems in the body.”

Attention to all school and companies, maybe Malaysia should start now!
