Organizations can now complement EZRA coaching programs with on-demand courses and exercises for employees through Headspace’s content
NEW YORK, January 15, 2024 — EZRA, the digital coaching arm of LHH, has announced a partnership with Headspace, the provider of the world’s most accessible, comprehensive mental health system, to empower organizations and their workforce with a more holistic approach to professional development that prioritizes employee wellbeing. Organizations delivering programs through EZRA’s unlimited coaching offering now have the option to provide participants with access to hundreds of on-demand meditations, guided programs, sleepcasts, workouts, focus music and more to build skills and enhance their everyday wellbeing through the Headspace app.
“We already know the proven positive impact coaching can have on areas that straddle both an individual’s personal and professional lives including burnout, work-life balance and motivation. However, we also recognize that as the workplace becomes increasingly complex and stressful to navigate, it’s important that organizations have the opportunity to support employees with programs that meaningfully address overall mental health and wellbeing as an integral part of their development journey,” said Sinéad Keenan, EZRA’s Chief Innovation Officer and Head of EZRA Labs. “We’re proud to partner with an industry leader like Headspace that shares our evidence-based and human-centered approach in helping shape a global workforce that’s happier, healthier and more engaged.”
Through EZRA’s partnership with Headspace, participants can access a variety of guided exercises to support their mental health and wellbeing goals, including:
Establishing mindfulness at work including breathing techniques, productivity exercises and focus music.
Building stress resilience through exercises focused on managing change, anxiety and burnout.
Improving sleep quality through guided programs rooted in cognitive behavioral therapy techniques to learn behavior change strategies for better sleep.
“Whether it’s at home, at work or the moments in between – Headspace offers a convenient and accessible way for EZRA participants to integrate wellness, mindfulness and meditation into their daily lives,” said Simon Miller, Headspace’s International Partnerships Director. “As more organizations continue to prioritize the mental health and wellbeing of their people, our vision is to support them with evidence-based resources that can open the door to a lifetime of healthy habits and positive change.”
