Abstract   Sleep deprivation, a generally neglected topic in organizational research, has brought about increasingly salient social dilemma. Nowadays plenty of employees are working without enough sleep. The state of diminished capacity induced by insufficient sleep would damage employees’ psychological state, behavior and performance, and thus influence organizational effectiveness and management practices. By reviewing the existing research, we clarify the definition, measurement, basic theoretical framework, and mechanisms of sleep deprivation within the organizational and management context. Next, we summarize the specific factors affecting employees’ sleep deprivation, and its effects on individual, leadership, and team level. Then, we conclude the prevention and mitigation strategies for organizational sleep management. Finally, we suggest that future research could explore the types of concept, antecedents, process mechanism, research methods and research levels.
