According to the World Health Organization, burnout is a syndrome conceptualized as resulting from chronic workplace stress that has not been successfully managed. It is characterized by three dimensions: feelings of energy depletion or exhaustion, increased mental distance from one’s job, or feelings of negativism or cynicism related to one’s job, and reduced professional efficacy. Luckily, there are many tools that can be provided to empower employees to self-manage their stress, anxiety, and focus.
Offering a paid mental health or personal day off in your benefits package is a great start. Studies show that 94% of employees had as much or more energy after returning from vacation. Innovative industries looking for an integrated, effective solution are incorporating an approach that takes it one step further. By providing tools for employee mental health every day, your team can reap the benefits of time away from work by taking a virtual vacation.
Our augmented reality experiences are launched from an employee’s personal mobile device such as a phone or tablet using our app available for iOS and Android. Simply launch the app right from your phone and select the experience. Augmented reality gives you the ability to see the real world through your phone’s camera, but with our content integrated. For example, see a tree with a butterfly chrysalis on your desk, and watch butterflies hatch from the cocoon.
There are so many resources and apps available, but not all of them have been tested for validity. Healium is clinically-validated to work in as little as four minutes. In five peer-reviewed journals, our virtual reality experiences reduced anxiety, improved positivity, and reduced stress.
Our virtual reality experiences are viewed using a VR headset such as an Oculus Go, Oculus Quest, or Pico Goblin. These headsets can be placed in relaxation rooms or shared spaces around the office, and can be sent home to employees. Place the headset on, launch our app and select the experience you’d like to view.
Choose from over 30 experiences with new content added every 60 days. Most are nature-based with guided meditations that can be toggled on or off. Immersive audio contributes to the feeling of presence. Hear crickets chirping behind you or listen to the sounds of the waves crashing next to you. Follow along with the prompts or simply listen to the sounds of nature. Look around 360 degrees. You’ll find yourself immersed in the environment.
Employees who have these tools at work are more productive and enjoy better focus at work. Healium is a solution to reduce burnout by providing some of the same benefits that employees get from taking a vacation. With our virtual reality experiences, your staff can be in an immersive environment that creates a sense of presence. Visit the beach, float up the side of a waterfall, stand on the top of a mountain…see it all in a quick reset in as little as four minutes.
