Uprise reduces severe stress and improves sleep quality in Property Management and Construction Industry

"Supporting our employees with proactive wellness approaches is a high priority across the business. Uprise is playing a key part in this by delivering measurable results via their platform. This is a great service for companies looking to provide preventative wellness at scale.”


Company Overview

The company offers development management; investment management; project management & construction and asset & property management. Its expertise covers multiple sectors including commercial, residential, retail, retirement and infrastructure.

A global health assessment of the organisation in 2013 showed that 16 percent of employees were at high risk of developing depression and approximately 9 percent experienced stress related to work. The company’s search for a proactive scalable wellness offering led them to Uprise. The company's EAP continued to provide crisis services and Uprise was used to engage employees who didn't identify as having a 'problem' that needed therapy but who were nonetheless stressed.

Retraining thinking and mindfulness have been stand out modules. I am able to better control my thoughts and remain focused at work.

The company's wellness team initially offered Uprise to the company’s mental health first aid advocates. These employees in core operations of the business are also trained to lead the response if someone shows signs of anxiety, depression or substance use or has a panic attack. The advocates spread the program through word of mouth. Finally, Uprise was placed on the internal employee portal and promoted through email and message boards.

Maintaining Utilisation

Uprise collateral was provided at different stages of the employee experience: as part of onboarding, promotion and to assist with restructuring and retirement. Uprise information was provided as part of training for Mental Health First Aiders. Posters were created for remote sites including QR codes for signup. Digital collateral on physical, mental and financial fitness was created for monthly release by calendar. Uprise delivered in person workshop presentations to key leaders.
