WorkGuru provides you with the tools you and your staff need to build mental resilience, manage stress and have a more rewarding and productive working life. We describe ourselves as the fruit and veg for the brain: we all know the things that we could be doing to keep ourselves physically healthy, we show you the things that you can be doing to keep yourself mentally healthy.
Stress is the leading cause of long-term sickness absence in the workplace. 22% of us describe our jobs as extremely or very stressful leading to unhappiness, poor physical health, absenteeism, reduced productivity and high staff turnover. WorkGuru combines approaches that work with engaging, interactive modules and effective support, all delivered online; resulting in increased mental resilience and reduced stress – creating a happier, healthier, and more productive workforce.
A randomised controlled trial was published in 2017 showing that using WorkGuru lowers levels of depression, anxiety and stress. This review was published in an academic peer review journal and is available from here.
