OPSI COVID-19 Innovative Response Tracker

Mental Gym, that helps employees build a personalized habit of emotional hygiene.

Innovative response

Research shows, that employees’ poor mental health causes a drop in productivity by 36% and the rise of sick days. In fact, 50% of Millennials leave jobs because of it.
We believe that employees’ emotional hygiene must become a routine and taken care of by outside professionals. ​That’s why we created AOC – a Mental Gym, an objective partner, that helps to build a habit of exercising emotional fitness, anonymously and safely. Employees can train individually, with a community, or certified professionals, and based on tracked data – improve over time.

Specific issues addressed and anticipated impact

Research shows, that employees’ poor mental health causes a drop in productivity by 36% and the rise of sick days. In fact, 50% of Millennials leave jobs because of it. Due to COVID-19 and from its resulting global lockdown, mental health is projected to become a pandemic of its own. Replacing unproductive employee costs ~ $2000 - $7000 and the total cost of mental ill-health in Europe is estimated to be €240 billion/per year. Happier employees are more enthusiastic about their work and more likely to stay at their jobs.

Our ultimate goal is to destigmatize mental health and build a habit of exercising emotional fitness. We aim to keep employees happy and productive, and by doing so – promote healthier and impact-driven workplace.
