Healthcare workers (HCWs) are the cornerstones of the health system and play a pivotal role in building its resilience. Their well-being is one of the major challenges in the pre and post Covid world. Increased workloads, illness risks, and juggling personal and professional duties are all adding to their stress levels. In the aftermath of the pandemic, our client, a research-intensive global healthcare company, wanted to develop a digital platform to help HCWs manage their anxiety and work stress better while also improving their emotional and mental well-being.
