Wellness for First Responders

  • October 13, 2022

Are you losing emergency personnel due to burnout? 

First responders are constantly exposed to stressful situations and therefore more likely to burnout.

Three million Americans permanently left the labor force after the 2020-21 COVID lockdowns. For example, in 2020 1.7 million health care workers quit their jobs. The number one reason is burn-out from overwork.[1]

 

How do you know when you or your teams are experiencing burnout? 

Self-reporting does not work. Vulnerable populations - like those experiencing burnout, depression, anxiety and related issues - are unable to accurately report how they feel and often lack the motivation to do so. 

To lead effectively - you need the proper tool to accurately measure the emotional fitness of teams.

Indeed, wondr. allows team leaders to immediately assess how changes in approaches and procedures impact stress and performance before the productivity flags and quits follow. 

 

In a recent study done by Dr. Paul J. Zak at Claremont Graduate University using wondr. - the platform powered by Immersion - predicted depressive symptoms in a vulnerable population two days before burnout with 98% accuracy

 

In this study, the data were collected continuously and passively for 10 hours a day. These high-resolution data create an opportunity to intervene before a crisis occurs. 

 

What does this mean for you?
