I am also the person who has gone to the office literally every day since March 13th, and you guys have helped me through it and helped so many in our organization. It really brings to heart what LifeGuides is doing.

With the pandemic, anxiety, employee well-being, mental health are big issues in the workplace. When you lower those anxieties by being able to talk about them with a Guide, innovation goes up, retention goes up, productivity goes up. There are so many benefits with having LifeGuides for your employees.
