It is very exciting to have our first client, that being the prestigious Melbourne University. In 2016 a pro-active team leader at Melbourne University was looking to offer some extra support her team in a cost effect and efficient way. After some research she found that an App could deliver many positive benefits and she came across C.O.P.E apps Office Worker Support. It had the tools to assist her team with alleviating the unwanted physical discomfort associated with working in front of a computer all day. C.O.P.E apps also addressed minimising the mental stress that could build up in a busy work environment. She liked what she saw and because she understood the benefits inherent in taking care of her team she went ahead with the process of getting the app to her team.
I believe we are at the cusp of using technology efficiently to assist medium to large businesses help their employees COPE better in an office environment where staff spend 6 – 8 hours in front of a computer performing various work tasks.
Here are some commonly held well researched beliefs circulating in the media.
YES employers want their employees to be healthy happy and productive. Go to many large employers’ buildings and you will see that they have a small gym and regular classes run for their employees, and do you think this helps the majority of their employees. The answer is NO. Most don’t use it and the gym caters for a tiny number of employees.
