One-third of workers globally are experiencing increased burnout during the pandemic. Although burnout has been a topic for decades, with livingrooms becoming conference rooms, the lack of separation between work and life has become the #1 workplace stressor.
Yet even though burnout is pervasive and can result in everything from insomnia to high blood pressure, it’s one of those issues employees often feel they can’t talk to their employers about.
Filled with tools to help remote workers maintain healthy routines, Working Den has launched as a free service. Designed to be used throughout the workday, at launch, the service includes:
- Exercise and stretching guides
- Calming nature videos
- Playlists of background noise
- Mental health assessment quizzes
- Pomodoro productivity timer
- Eye-strain reduction notification system
New features like the ability to pair users up with one another to answer questions and as a way to combat loneliness are on the way.
