While work from home continues for India Inc, Microsoft has planned to make its video conferencing platform Teams more sensitive to burnout in the workplace. Users can control their daily well-being and practice breathing exercises to boost stress.
This is offered in partnership with Joye, a Singapore-based wellness technology company. Microsoft Teams administrators can easily turn Joye on for your organization with a single click from Teams’ App Store.
Joye analyzes work patterns in Microsoft Teams and submits suggestions. This empowers any employee in the hybrid workplace – especially when they are lonely, overworked and stressed, said Sanjeev Magotra, founder and CEO of Joye.
For example, Joyes Daily Brew allows users to measure and manage their daily well-being. The user can speak, write or follow a guided reflection in a safe and anonymized space. Joyes AI is trained to recognize the user’s unique situation and then assist them with mood analysis at the joy level, behavior coaching and short podcasts.
Joye’s Stress Busters are two-minute breathing techniques to streamline the mind at the critical moment when Joye senses that stress is likely to affect the user’s mental condition and decision making.
“Microsoft Teams users can enjoy opportunities to build and cement their habit of mental fitness and personal well-being as they use the Teams platform for events, employee experiences, communication and collaboration in a secure way,” said Joanna Lim, Business Group lead, Modern Work & Security, Microsoft Singapore.
Joye does not share individual data with the employer or anyone else, the company claims. To help companies develop data-driven wellness programs, Joye can consolidate the anonymized data as a management dashboard for the organization’s daily emotional health. Organizations can subscribe to Joyes’ company subscription license.
