Educators are unsung heroes... Unfortunately, people often think the answer to burnout is to quit or change careers, when it could be better addressed, or even avoided, with preventive tools. That’s why we made preventive support for mental health a top priority.”

If you feel stressed or anxious, you might not feel like you need a therapist or have the time to see one. But a mental health self-care tool like Calm lets you take care of yourself in a way that’s private and manageable with your schedule.

I use the data I find in the [Calm Business] dashboard to tailor my communications and inspire my wellness programming.

The support and tools Calm provides to simplify administration and drive employee engagement are a lifesaver for a department of our size. Each month, we receive email templates, links to content, calendars, and e-books centered around a theme. I’m often doing a dozen things at once and having these tools helps keep awareness top of mind across our educators and staff.

The positive impact of Calm across the global workforce

Every month, we put Calm’s mindful living calendars on our company intranet. We also print and post them on our chalkboards in different areas of our breweries. We realized this was popular when we didn’t have them posted on the first of one month and started getting emails from employees.

We found that Calm Business is a tangible, easy-to-use benefit with immediate effects. It’s really important that we proactively reduce stress and anxiety and offer a preventive mental health tool as a first step for employees who are struggling. That’s how I see Calm Business, and I’m proud to offer it to our employees.

We like Calm’s focus on cultural relevance when it comes to mental health. It’s a platform that taps into instructors from local regions and ethnicities to develop culturally relevant mental health resources. It’s not just a bot translation.

We featured Chibs Okereke from Calm as a speaker on stress and burnout at our company retreat. Chibs did a phenomenal job and it was a really special way to roll out Calm as a new benefit to our employees. Being a small company, our employees take on a lot and burnout is real. Chibs is witty and engaging and his keynote workshop had a profound impact on our employees. Our employees left feeling rejuvenated and with a greater sense of connection to our organization as a whole.
