Solution Targets Stress and Mental Health Crisis Facing Our Workforce
ORLANDO, FL (Sept. 15, 2020) — Drawing on 10 years of data insights from delivering one of the most studied and successful corporate mindfulness programs for high-performing employees at top companies around the world, eMindful, the leading provider of live, virtual mindfulness solutions, today announced that it has launched Mindfulness at WorkTM. The solution is designed for modern consumption habits to reduce stress and associated costs among our nation’s workforce during this challenging time and beyond.
“The pandemic has upended every aspect of life making it necessary to reach people in innovative ways,” said Mary Pigatti, CEO, eMindful. “eMindful has been highly successful at equipping individuals with skills they need to address stress. Mindfulness at Work takes our approach to the next level with a solution that delivers the same consistent results and an exceptional experience based on what employees need now.”
Global health concerns, social unrest, political turbulence, and financial uncertainty are causing unprecedented spikes in stress. A recent study from researchers at Harvard Medical School and the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill found that more than half of Americans say they’re more stressed than they were before the pandemic, and the American Psychological Association reports that the negative mental health effects of the pandemic will be serious and long-lasting.
“As the pandemic persists, employers are making mental health a priority,” Pigatti added. “Mindfulness at Work integrates seamlessly into everyday life, giving participants a solution to weather this storm and emerge healthier, happier, and more resilient.”
Mindfulness at Work is a live, 10-session, 30-minute evidence-based course held twice a week. The program is led by expert teachers who provide perspective, accountability, and personalized insights. Participants access the program through the mobile app or web and work with the expert mindfulness teachers to build new skills and learn applied mindfulness practices to cope with stress, improve physical and emotional health, sleep, focus, performance, energy, and quality of life.
