What is Corporate Wellbeing?
Corporate wellbeing relates to all aspects of working life, from the quality of sleep and physical health to work environment and stress. Corporate wellbeing programs are employer-sponsored initiatives offered to support employee wellbeing and improve organizational performance.
According to Harvard Business Review,
“To effectively reenergize their workforces, organizations need to shift their emphasis from getting more out of people to investing more in them, so they are motivated—and able—to bring more of themselves to work every day.”
Wellbeing is unique to each person.
There are many different drivers that contribute to wellbeing, such as happiness, prosperity, and life satisfaction.
How important each of the drivers are and how they are connected, depend on the individual. The diversity of human experiences means wellbeing requires a personalized approach.
Wellbeing needs subjective and objective measures.
Most wellbeing research focuses on personal assessments.
This approach limits which factors can be recorded and considered within existing wellbeing solutions. Take stress for example—a survey would only measure an employee’s perceived stress, but a physiological reading of stress-related metrics would likely offer a more comprehensive picture. Empatho’s industry leading app provides this comprehensive approach.
Wellbeing is dynamic.
Wellbeing is always evolving, and both daily and long-term factors affect it. Wellbeing needs to be measured in a way that is sensitive to both short-term and long-term changes to be reflective of each person’s unique journey.
Research is continuing to show that positive wellbeing has health, work, family, and economic benefits. It has also been long concluded that higher levels of wellbeing are associated with decreased risks of disease, injury and illness, as well as better productivity and community engagement. Even the CDC agrees that wellbeing is an important public health and population outcome measure, and advances in psychology and neuroscience have improved the ability to accurately measure wellbeing.

Wellbeing Program Improve
It starts by supporting employees as whole people. According to the Mayo Clinic and Harvard Business Review, employee retention, burnout, and productivity are strongly affected by organizational factors like long working hours, unrealistic deadlines, and poor corporate culture. Factors outside of work also have an impact. For example, a recent study from Harvard University found a strong relationship between employees who exercise and a reduction in absenteeism. This means that factors such as physical activity, social relationships, sleep, and personal stress are equally important to consider.
When employee wellbeing is supported, it shows in employee outcomes. The American Psychology Association (APA) found that 9/10 employees report an increase in motivation and job satisfaction after their organization implemented wellbeing initiatives. This resulted in nearly 30% reduction in employee turnover. The financial benefits are also great—reducing burnout and fostering an engaged and motivated workforce could save U.S. companies up to $550 billion each year.
Not only are corporate wellbeing programs effective, but they are also becoming expected by the multigenerational workforce. Now, 71% of global employers are implementing a wellbeing or wellness program. For organizations striving to attract and retain the right talent, corporate wellbeing programs are quickly becoming the key differentiator.
The Empathway™ - Empatho works with each user to improve overall wellbeing in a customized and individual way through
our proprietary PsychAI™ platform.
PsychAI™ - Empatho’s PsychAI™ platform is an algorithm that leverages passive and active metrics. It detects which key factor(s) is impacting your wellbeing the most and provides insights and recommendations to improve your wellbeing.
Approach to Wellbeing
Empatho is a science-based virtual wellbeing platform that leverages the features of smartphones and wearable devices to monitor, analyze, and predict factors that contribute to each person’s wellbeing.
At Empatho, we view wellbeing as individual, dynamic, and actionable, so we focus on factors of wellbeing that people can take control over. We provide actionable recommendations to help our subscribers continuously improve their habits and behaviour, one step at a time.
The Empathway™ Provides Value for both Employees and Employers.
Each of your employees will experience a personalized and tailored wellbeing journey with Empatho. Their wellbeing score, insights, and recommendations are based on their behaviour and survey responses. Empatho specifically addresses the factors that are affecting their overall wellbeing.
For employers, we provide an overview of employee wellbeing within your organization. Empatho helps assess potential risk factors that may be driving burnout, reducing productivity, or contributing to employee turnover. We are steadfast about protecting the privacy of employees, so the employer dashboard will provide anonymized and aggregated scores across your organization to help you make important management decisions.
Empatho goes Beyond Typical Survey Programs.
Most wellbeing programs lack an objective view of wellbeing, instead of relying solely on subjective survey questions. However, survey-based programs come with the risk of inaccuracies and bias, in addition to being very user intensive. Employees often report that an easy user experience is vital to their engagement with a wellbeing program. Engagement is then heavily correlated with the impact of a wellbeing program.
Empatho brings together both subjective and objective measurements to create a fun and user-friendly experience while collecting the necessary data to personally support every subscriber’s unique wellbeing journey - the Empathway™.
We leverage the features of smartphones and wearable devices to capture the individual drivers affecting wellbeing.
Remote devices and technology are massive databases for behavioural (e.g., activity levels, sleep), physiological (e.g., heart rate metrics), and environmental (e.g., barometric pressure) monitoring. Harnessing the data from smart devices has introduced a new way of objectively measuring factors that contribute to wellbeing. Through monitoring this passive data, as well as strategically delivering subjective survey questions, we provide users with a comprehensive wellbeing experience.

Empatho for Employees
Your score is a daily average for the key factors within each wellbeing dimension (vitality, mood, and resilience). We then compare your daily score to your personal average within each dimension. We provide you with a breakdown of your score and highlight what is likely impacting your wellbeing.
A good wellbeing score (i.e., 80% and above) indicates your energy levels are high and mood and resilience levels are well balanced. A lower score indicates there are some factors that can be improved.
Wellbeing is dynamic and your score may fluctuate over time. This is a completely normal part of your journey. Your wellbeing score identifies which dimension(s) you may want to focus on, and we will provide recommendations that can help you improve - The Empathway™!
Explore Insights and Recommendations
From your passive and active metrics, our algorithm detects which key factor(s) is impacting your wellbeing the most. We also notify you when your wellbeing score changes and what it means. For example, if there’s a drop in your movement, you will be sent insights into how this affects your vitality and other aspects of your wellbeing.
While awareness of your wellbeing is the first step, your journey continues from there. We then offer actionable recommendations to target and improve that key factor. Our tailored recommendations were developed by behavioural experts to provide manageable, incremental steps towards rebalancing your wellbeing.
