In a business landscape irrefutably changed by the pandemic, workplace mental health strategies are increasingly vital. The 87 Percent employee mental health app can help.

According to Mind.org, 25% of people will experience a mental health problem this year. Only 13% of adults report living with high levels of mental good health. In addition to the everyday stresses of modern life, the pandemic crisis has also added to the toll on the nation’s health. As people begin to return to work in a changed business landscape, it is imperative for employers to take their employees’ mental health very seriously indeed.

Every organisation is made up of its people. Leaders, employees – whoever we are, whatever our role in an organisation, we can all face mental health challenges of varying degrees on a short-term or long-term basis. And that’s where the 87 Percent app comes in.

How does 87 Percent support an organisation's wellbeing programme?

Are you an organisation or leader seeking to enhance your mental wellbeing programme – or establish one from the ground up? If so, 87 Percent can help your organisation improve or develop a mental wellbeing strategy that boosts productivity and resilience in the workplace (and beyond) by means of a mental health fitness app available to your employees.

Employees are given the tools they need to measure, understand and improve their wellbeing. The app is personalised to their own unique needs as an individual. As an organisation, you’ll be provided with the data and insights to support your employees while maintaining their complete privacy and security.

How do employees benefit from the 87 Percent mental health app?

Based on research, mental wellbeing has, for the purposes of 87 Percent's methodology, been categorised into seven core elements that reflect a person’s everyday life.

The core pillars of mental wellbeing measured in the app are:

  • Quality of life
  • Body
  • Emotions
  • Relationships
  • Work
  • Self-esteem
  • Growth

Employees complete their profile based on these core elements and use tailored insights and tips from the app at a pace that best suits them, putting the insights into the context of their lives and goals.

Employees can benefit from the app as a secure and private space.

Employers can benefit from the app by getting data-driven insights and bespoke recommendations, adjusted where needed for maximum ROI, in order to shape the organisation’s mental wellbeing strategy into a system that provides measurable improvements to workplace mental health.

We need more transparency around mental health, and more conversations in and beyond the boardroom about the importance of mental health in the work community.

Mental health workplace strategies are increasingly being seen as necessities, not luxuries – particularly in a during and post-pandemic world. And 87 Percent is an example of an app that employees would find authentically useful in their professional and personal lives - while improving the productivity and resilience of an organisation, too.

As an employer or organisation... be productive. Be ambitious. Be kind.
