Grokker is off to a running start! We’ve been working hard to ensure our workforce wellbeing solution meets the needs of today’s employees and their HR leaders — and industry movers and shakers are taking notice. We're thankful and proud. It’s certainly an exciting time to serve the HR marketplace with cutting-edge technologies that engage employees and make it easy for them to feel their best. 

Bring Workplace Wellness Home

In her latest post, Grokker CEO Lorna Borenstein urged us to make it personal. As Lorna tells us, “By making employees and their families the focal point of your company, you create a community.”

Numerous studies have shown that social support plays a key role in both health and overall happiness. A January study found that people who feel socially connected to family or friends have lower health risks. Researchers found that socially-integrated teens were 48 percent less likely to be obese, and older adults who were socially integrated were 54 percent less likely to develop high blood pressure.

3 Easy Steps to Your New Healthy Meditation Habit

The benefits of meditation and mindfulness are numerous. Scientific studies have demonstrated many benefits of meditation from reduced stress, to increased productivity and focus, to overall happiness and health benefits. Many well known successful executives and entrepreneurs swear by their daily meditation habit.

You’re interested in starting a meditation habit, but not sure where or how to begin because something so straightforward, essentially sitting still and thinking, somehow feels so overwhelming. Here are 3 easy steps to help you build your own healthy meditation habit.

Stress is the Number 1 Problem in Workplaces

It may not be news that employees see their own stress as a top issue. Now Towers Watson’s 2013/2014 Staying@Work Report confirms that 78% of employers also see it as their top too.

An employee’s stress level is a top concern of their employer because it costs American businesses ~ $300 billion/year in increased healthcare costs and lost productivity from absenteeism and low engagement.

Exercise, Meditation and Yoga Work for the Rich and Famous

If you’re like me, when you have a minute at the doctor’s office or hair salon, you indulge in a little guilty pleasure of reading the entertainment magazines. I always check out the “celebrities are just like us” section to see pictures of the stars going about their daily lives.

And just like us, actors and entrepreneurs in the public eye also struggle with their work life balance. And, just like us, they choose to devote time to activities they love; those activities that help keep them healthy and centered.
