Wellness platform for workplace Meditation.live launches in the Slack App Marketplace
We all know about Apple App Store and Google Play. Many people may not be familiar with Slack App Marketplace, an app directory owned by Slack, a popular collaboration hub that brings the right people, information and tools together to get work done. The Slack App Marketplace was launched in 2015 and has grown to over 700+ apps (Oct, 2017). Apps can be deeply integrated into the Slack client with an extensive API. The most common usage is implementing (chat)bots. Slack is a tool that allows teams to communicate in a way that is a crossover between IM and email. Slack claims over eight million daily active users, in 50,000 teams (May, 2018).
Today, meditation.live, a wellness platform for workplace, announced today that the company has launched its app in the Slack App Marketplace, alongside other premier collaboration organizations already using Slack globally. meditation.live will become the first full-service, live wellness solution in the Slack Marketplace, which boasts more than 12 million daily active users across more than 150 countries, 100,000 plus paid customers and clients in 65 of the Fortune 100 companies. Meditation.live is on mission to inspire five billion people to find their true purpose, using live and interactive meditation and mindful movement classes
meditation.live is a live, interactive and data-driven wellness platform with a mission to inspire 5 billion people find their true purpose. The company’s unique set of live panels, courses, classes and on-demand content is specifically designed to reduce stress, improve sleep, help employees develop emotional intelligence and learn valuable skills to thrive at work and in daily life.
After a successful completion of its initial $3 million capital investment by SoftBank Capital NY and the launch of its live mediation, sleep music and fitness classes last year, the company has signed on more than 50 new enterprise clients in the past six months. Meditation.live sees very high adoption rate of its app, Wellness Coach, within the enterprise, up to 80% within six months. By adding Slack App, the company hopes to make it easier for hard-working teams to start a short class just by a simple click on Slack.
The meditation.live Slack App is designed as a gentle reminder to take a few minutes to learn a new skill each day, be it learning how to reduce stress, deal with anxiety and emotions or how to practice gratitude. Every day, after installing the app, you get a daily inspirational quote and a short class offering to practice the message. For example, you may see a quote on habits from Warren Buffet, “Chains of habits are too light to be felt until they are too heavy to be broken.” Below the quote, there is a link on how to learn to change habits and learn new ones.
The company recommends adding our Slack app to your General Channel or create a new channel called “Wellness Coach” and invite your team to that channel. The app is currently free for anyone to use.
Wellness is becoming a growing focus for businesses, as well as individuals. Many companies are looking for ways to combat workforce stress and improve employee health and wellness through innovative programs. Research shows that stressed workers are less engaged, less productive and have higher levels of absenteeism and turnover.
D Sharma, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of meditation.live said, “We are pleased to bring our wellness platform to one of the preeminent places where people come together to make work happen. We believe that incorporating wellness into daily work life can have a meaningful impact on teams and companies all over the world.”
