December 4, 2023 - Bright Breaks, a trailblazer in virtual well-being platforms for remote and hybrid companies, has officially declared December as Remote Worker Wellness Month. This initiative aims to highlight and address the unique wellness challenges faced by remote workers, especially during what is arguably the busiest month of the year.
December is a month typically marked by heightened work demands and personal commitments taking into account the bustling holiday season. It can be particularly challenging for remote workers. Recognizing this, Bright Breaks is dedicated to promoting and supporting wellness themes crucial for remote employees' mental and physical health.
David Howe, CEO of Bright Breaks, emphasizes the importance of this initiative: "Thriving in remote work isn't just about the job; it's about feeling your best every day. Bright Breaks goes beyond the usual wellness platforms. We get what remote workers really need. We're tackling isolation, burnout, and more, because we know it matters."
In the remote work environment, the issue of 'quiet quitting' is becoming increasingly prevalent. This term refers to employees who are physically present or logged in but have mentally checked out from their work. They lack direction and motivation and feel disconnected from their colleagues and organization. Statistics show that nearly 60% of employees are experiencing this form of disengagement.
Additionally, global stress levels are at an all-time high, with 44% of employees reporting significant stress daily. These figures highlight the urgent need for dedicated initiatives like Bright Breaks' Remote Worker Wellness Month, designed to combat such workplace challenges.
David Howe continues: "Remote Worker Wellness Month is our way of making sure remote workers know they're not alone. And for managers and HR leaders, we're here to support you in building a culture where well-being is a priority. Because when you feel good, you work even better."
To support this initiative, Bright Breaks has generated free promotional resources optimized for internal communication channels like Slack and Viva Engage. These resources, available through Bright Breaks' blog, are designed to help HR professionals effectively promote wellness themes within their teams.
Following this commitment to enhancing workplace wellness, Bright Breaks has successfully completed a substantial financing round. Raising CA $2,525,000 under the leadership of Build Ventures, and with the backing of Concrete Ventures and Invest Nova Scotia, the company has reinforced its resolve to redefine well-being in the remote work sector.
This investment will further enhance Bright Breaks' offerings and its mission to reach 1 million employees taking breaks on its platform by 2025.
Bright Breaks stands out in the remote work landscape with its comprehensive suite of wellness tools tailored to the unique challenges of remote and hybrid environments. From live and on-demand content to challenge features and automated scheduling of wellness breaks, the platform offers a robust alternative to traditional wellness solutions.
As December approaches, Bright Breaks encourages remote companies worldwide to acknowledge and promote Remote Worker Wellness Month, fostering a work culture that prioritizes well-being and productivity. Easily promote this wellness theme to employees with free resources provided by Bright Breaks.
