Investing in Employee Wellbeing solutions

Organisations in APAC seeing benefits of investing in employee Wellbeing solutions

According to a recent article by Insurance Business Magazine, investment in employee wellbeing has been on the rise in the Asia-Pacific region. This trend comes as employers recognize the importance of prioritising employee health and wellness to improve productivity and reduce healthcare costs. One technology that could help employers achieve these goals is Visix by Vastmindz.

Visix is a native Teams application that uses the front-facing camera on a laptop to monitor several key health indicators, including heart rate, respiration rate, heart rate variability, and stress index. The platform combines this data with historical data to produce a comprehensive health score that includes a readiness score, a feeling score, and a body performance readiness score. Visix provides personalised guidance to users on how to improve their health score based on the data captured.

For employers, Visix could be a valuable tool in promoting employee wellbeing. By providing employees with access to this technology, employers can help their employees monitor their health and wellness and take proactive steps to improve their overall wellbeing. This, in turn, can lead to increased productivity and reduced healthcare costs for employers.

In addition to the benefits for employees, Visix also prioritises privacy and security. Users must opt in to use the product, and Visix only captures a pixelated part of the face to collect health data. All data is stored encrypted on Microsoft Azure platforms, ensuring that sensitive information is protected.

Overall, the trend of increasing investment in employee wellbeing is an encouraging development, and technologies like Visix can play an important role in supporting these efforts. By providing employees with access to personalised health monitoring tools and guidance, employers can help create a healthier and more productive workplace.

In addition to the benefits of promoting employee wellness, investing in employee wellbeing can also have a positive impact on a company’s reputation and ability to attract and retain top talent. In today’s competitive job market, job seekers are increasingly looking for employers who prioritise their health and wellbeing.

With the rise of remote work and the increasing need for virtual solutions, Visix by Vastmindz offers a convenient and accessible way for employees to monitor their health and wellness, regardless of their location. This is especially important for companies with remote or distributed teams, where employees may not have access to traditional onsite wellness programs.

Visix also offers valuable insights for employers, allowing them to track employee wellbeing trends over time and make data-driven decisions about their wellness programs but they dont get access to any specific persons data, rather an aggregated view.  By identifying areas where employees may be struggling, employers can proactively address these issues and make targeted investments in employee wellness that have the potential to yield significant returns.

In conclusion, investing in employee wellbeing is a smart business decision that can yield numerous benefits for employers and employees alike. By incorporating technology like Visix by Vastmindz into their wellness programs, employers can provide their employees with personalised health monitoring and guidance that can lead to increased productivity, reduced healthcare costs, and a healthier and more engaged workforce.

Visix by Vastmindz can help companies stay ahead of the curve in employee wellness initiatives by providing a cutting-edge, AI-powered wellness solution that is convenient, easy to deploy, low cost and easy to use. With its ability to monitor key health metrics such as heart rate, respiration rate, heart rate variability, and stress index, Visix provides a comprehensive view of employee wellbeing that can inform targeted wellness initiatives.

As the Insurance Business Magazine article points out, companies in the APAC region are increasing their investments in employee wellbeing.
