A significant number of US workers experience work-related stress, with many considering their job as the primary source of stress in their lives. Recognizing the importance of mental health support, around 80% of employees express the need for employers to provide such assistance. To address this need, employers can now offer digital health apps as part of their benefits programs, going beyond traditional tools like meditation and mindfulness. Pivot, a behavioral change digital health company, has recently launched Pivot Flex, a customizable digital health solution that helps individuals manage everyday stress and build resilience for improved mental well-being. The platform provides health coaches, a supportive community, challenges, tools, and resources to help users track progress and develop strategies to combat stress. Employers and health insurers also benefit from the measurable data and outcomes provided by Pivot Flex, contributing to their strategic goals.
Pivot Flex builds on Pivot's successful behavioral change model established with their tobacco cessation solution, Pivot Breathe, as stress is a significant reason for smoking. The new offering focuses on coaching, community support, and practice tools to strengthen individuals' resilience skills in dealing with stress. Resilient individuals experience lower stress-related healthcare issues, take fewer sick days, report greater job satisfaction, and are more productive, leading to lower turnover for employers and fewer insurance claims for insurers. By providing employees with the right tools to manage stress, employers can create a win-win situation for both the individuals and the organization.
