Burnout and insurance companies?

Help your employees gain their full potential and avoid burnouts

1 employee in 5 considers her/himself to be tired or lacking energy. Most employees also report a high level of tiredness after lunch.

What if we could offer your employees to have a high level of energy the whole day long?

The general lack of energy as well as the post-lunch fatigue represent a substantial loss of productivity for companies and stress for employees.

This online module will guide employees through a quick analysis of their present situation, their needs and will give a first assessment of their present level of fitness as well as solutions easily implementable within minutes and measure quickly the result: more energy and more productivity. According to NASA, some strategies can improve by up to 35% employees’ reactivity and productivity in the afternoon.

(Only available in French for now. English, German, Spanish, Italian roll-out scheduled for 2020)

Stéphane Tétart, naturopath, is the author of several books about health and well-being, including “Stop the fatigue” and the best-seller „Secrets of naturopaths“. He has helped people regain their full potential and productivity at work for more than 10 years after experiencing a burnout himself.
