BeWELL at Work: A Solution for Workplace Stress
Workplace stress has been consistently rising, with roughly 83% of employees reporting work-related stress. Increased work stress impacts physical and mental health and leads to harmful and unhealthy coping strategies, absenteeism, and lost productivity. Now more than ever, employees need additional resources and support for their mental health and well-being, and it is the responsibility of organizational leaders to connect them to and provide these resources. Additionally, organizational leaders must invest in their mental health to better support and manage their teams while creating an organizational culture where their employees can thrive.
BeWELL at Work as a Supportive Resource and Solution
BeWELL at Work offers companies a solution through a modernized approach to outdated employee assistance programs. It assists companies to better retention rates, increase engagement, and supports productivity.

More than 30 % of those surveyed reported problems with focusing/brain fog, depressed mood, and relationship conflicts. Those surveyed listed primary stressors as financial stressors (65%), work-life balance (65%), family and personal relationships (54%), and time management (50%).
