Interserve aims to help colleagues ‘Thrive’ with wellness app
Interserve has invested in the innovative Thrive application to support colleagues’ wellbeing and mental health.
Provided by AXA PPP healthcare, the Thrive: Mental Wellbeing application helps users boost their mental wellbeing and manage their mood with clinically approved techniques including cognitive behavioural therapy.
The application is now available to download for free by Interserve colleagues in the UK and Ireland.
Thrive was founded by consultant psychiatrist Dr Andres Fonseca and Dr Adam Huxley, a consultant clinical forensic psychologist, who each have over 20 years’ experience working in mental healthcare. Thrive is the only application approved by the NHS.
Allan Shanks, Interserve’s group head of health & safety, said: “We care about the health and wellbeing of our colleagues – this is an integral part of Interserve’s values and is fundamental to how we go about our business. We are therefore delighted to roll out Thrive to our colleagues as an added measure of support through this unprecedented period and thereafter.”
Dr Fonseca, CEO and co-founder of Thrive, said: “I am delighted Interserve has chosen to invest in Thrive because it illustrates just how importantly the company views the health and wellbeing of its employees. Mental health issues affect one in four people in the UK, so it is more important than ever that we have a positive attitude to mental wellness.
“The app we have created is available 24/7 and is rich with tools and content to help people measurably improve their wellbeing and better manage their way through life’s daily challenges.”
