- CareNow, which provides self-guided programs for users to work through stress, depression and anxiety.
Newsfeed and recognition features on the LifeWorks app, which help create a sense of belonging and build a culture focused on wellbeing;
- Personal and organisation-wide wellbeing challenges, such as step challenges to help with physical and social health, as well as habitude challenges focused on behaviour change like eating, sleeping, spending and more.
Commenting on the development, Neil King, president of integrated health solutions and executive vice president at LifeWorks, said: “The need for accessible and effective digital wellbeing resources has never been more critical.
“People across the globe need more self-guided care solutions that work within their schedules, lifestyle needs and ways of learning, as well as in their primary language.”
