SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Whil Concepts, Inc. ("Whil") today released a major update to its award-winning digital wellbeing training platform, available on mobile and desktop. The update incorporates five years of neuroscience, mindfulness and positive psychology research and decades of experience managing innovation, disruption and stress in high-performance companies.
"This release cements Whil's position as the leader in mental wellbeing training for the enterprise, providing employers with a data-driven solution to help employees reduce stress and improve their health, performance, relationships and sleep," said Joe Burton, founder and CEO of Whil. "It comes on the heels of significant growth in 2016. Whil is now serving 50 companies, including dozens of Fortune 500s, covering over 3 million lives in over 100 countries and serving 500,000 active users every month."
According to the American Institute of Stress, stress costs U.S. businesses over $300 billion every year in the forms of absenteeism, turnover, healthcare costs and lost productivity. Through their research, Whil has identified the major sources of stress common among professionals and offers personalized training to address them. Whil will be releasing new content modules every month to address more resiliency, wellbeing and performance topics with a learning-platform that adapts to individual users as well as company needs.
Along with this update, Whil's content library has nearly doubled with training covering 30+ specific life goals. Users have access to more than 250 training programs and over 1,250 unique individual video and audio sessions. Using machine learning, Whil assesses individual employee needs, prescribes the appropriate training and delivers measurable outcomes. Whil's signature search feature, WhilPower™ instantly provides the most relevant training to help employees with specific issues or needs in the moment.
HIPAA-compliant dashboards provide HR, corporate wellness and L&D professionals with actionable data and insights enabling the measurement of ROI. With new white-labeling and integration features, Whil stands alone as a mental wellbeing solution, as well as in its ability to integrate seamlessly into any existing corporate or educational wellness program.
Whil's approach to solving a major corporate health crisis was punctuated midway through 2016 at Johnson & Johnson's Digital Health Innovation Competition, where the company beat out 100 other startups.
In addition to corporate and individual users, Whil has had significant growth in helping students, faculty and counselors across U.S. schools and universities. "The timing is perfect for Whil to expand on its success with workforces to integrate this kind of skill-building into schools. There is growing research and evidence that mindfulness practices improve wellbeing, performance outcomes and personal development. Whil's approach to supplementing educational networks with digital skill building tools and plug-and-play classroom resources, makes Whil affordable, scalable and measurable for school districts. Whil's on-demand mobile training is exactly what schools need to support teachers and students -- immediate resources to support academic attainment and positive personal development." said Kimberly McNatt, head of Whil's education and behavioral network expansion and former CEO of MindUP™ and The Hawn Foundation.
