As one of the early pioneers of mobile behavioral health solutions, we’ve been privileged as a company to focus on the intersection of human performance, professional development, and wellbeing. What decades of advances in the behavioral sciences and seven years of our own data illuminate is that human performance and mental health are not two separate pursuits, but two parts of the same equation: the pursuit of human flourishing.
BetterUp exists to bring the benefits of cutting-edge technology, education, and design into the lives of ordinary human beings with the goal of helping them live their lives with more purpose, passion, and happiness. We are so proud to be working with the most progressive companies in the world like Mars Inc., Hilton, Genentech, NetApp, and Chevron, who are already benefiting from this approach of fostering wellbeing as the underpinning to performance.
The growth and high performance of our Members demonstrate what I call mental strength in motion. Members who start low on resilience grow on average by 125%. Stress is amongst the first outcomes we see, typically dropping by 71% within the first three months. Leadership behaviors like coaching grow by another 110% and this creates a ripple effect across our customers’ organizations. The team members of highly resilient leaders report 52% less burnout than those reporting to less resilient leaders, demonstrating the magnitude of value in investing in your middle managers.
