By partnering with Whil, Limeade offers customers a scientifically validated approach to on-demand digital stress, resilience, mindfulness and sleep training available on iPhone, Android and web-browser.
“We believe stress management is key for employees to be successful in and out of work. And we know from our work on employee turnover the role it plays in burnout. Whil teaches resilience, mindfulness, and emotional intelligence skills that help teams improve collaboration and empathy, strengthen decision-making and cultivate innovative thinking,” said Henry Albrecht, Limeade Founder & CEO. “We selected Whil because it’s scientifically-backed program aligns well with the Limeade whole-person well-being and employee engagement model.”

This year, Americans broke the record for highest stress levels ever recorded.
