How Hopstair is Transforming Women’s Health

Building women’s wellness through self confidence

Companies that invest in employee wellness see a 5% increase in productivity

Poor mental health affects us as individuals, and undoubtedly has an affect on the workplace.

Students and young professionals in particular are struggling with mental health, experiencing anxiety and depression at a record-high rate. 

Self-confidence is a buildable skill that is at the root of many mental health concerns. And, it behooves companies to support their employees in developing self-confidence.

Employee wellness is undoubtedly one of the keys to a successful business environment. A meta-analysis by the University of California assessed that companies that invest in the mental well-being of their employees experience a 5% increase in productivity. Additionally, “each dollar spent on wellness programs saved $3.27 in health care costs and $2.73 in absenteeism costs.” It is smart business to take care of employees and ensure they feel supported in their job functions. 

Building individual employee self-confidence is an area of wellness that is often neglected, but can make a big impact on company success. Employees with a high level of self-confidence are less likely to struggle with anxiety and depression, tend to have more emotional capacity for new challenges, and can incorporate self-reflection into their work without feeling threatened. Low self-confidence, on the other hand, is the root cause of many issues such as lack of motivation and productivity, poor mental health, and struggling with clear communication.

The HopStair Solution

HopStair founder, Nadine Pfeifer, considers the HopStair app to be the “Duolingo of self-confidence.” It is a user-friendly, easy-to-use app for building self-confidence. By incorporating HopStair into the employee wellness ecosystem, companies have the opportunity to transform their culture in a way that supports employees as individuals and the company as a whole.
