Summary

Our project focuses on workplace wellbeing. We are trying to solve the issue of a lack of effective communication and meaningful interactions within the workplace that puts employees wellbeing at risk. Our project is an application that will be used by both employees and management to foster communication and positive interactions that support workplace wellbeing. We learned that the health care sector and millennials are at risk for low levels of wellbeing in the workplace, thus they will be our target users. Moving forward we hope to expand our application to other workplace settings and age groups.

Next Steps

We would like to develop our application in partnership with the City of Vancouver and Vancouver Coastal Health. As of now our application is not being implemented in the community but we would like to run a pilot within the health care sector. Our group would like to continue to work on and develop our application to improve wellbeing within the workplace and shift workplace culture with mental wellbeing at the fore front.
