Why Now, Why Us?
Since the pandemic erupted, we’ve witnessed a digital revolution. What was already in progress skyrocketed overnight - with a shift to remote work and more digital access than ever before.
Today, eighty-three percent of employees are looking to their employers for guidance in navigating the pressures of remote work. Yet many employers feel ill-equipped to deal with these new pressures.
Our organization was created to address just this. The Digital Wellness Institute has helped hundreds of organizations and individuals to optimize their mental health, work habits, and productivity - all while embracing a positive, digital work culture.
