Calgary, AB (Apr. 10, 2019) – Over the next five days, more than 30,000 people connected to Matrix Labour Leasing will receive an invitation to access a free health and wellness program on Besurance Corporation’s You 2.0 mobile app platform.
“We are really excited about this launch,” said Shannon Warren, Founder and CEO, Matrix Labour Leasing Ltd. “What separates You 2.0 from typical health and fitness platforms is the focus on habit formation through “easy to do” micro-activities. Sixteen years ago, when I started this company, my goal was not just to be a participant in the industry, but to drive meaningful and positive change to people’s lives. Industrial and construction work can be very stressful for the mind and body. By offering You 2.0 to our community, we hope to create a fun, engaging, and non-invasive way to form good habits.“
The co-branded You 2.0 experience will offer the Matrix Community a variety of daily micro-activities ranging from mindfulness, fitness, nutrition and finance specific to the skilled trades demographic. All activities are delivered in a learn, action, and test format with snippets of digestible information. All activities and games are incentivized to boost participation.
“This is going to be a game changer for the construction industry,” said Minaz Lalani, FCIA, Chairman of Besurance. Not only does You 2.0 deliver expert driven and habit forming content to employees, but it helps companies like Matrix understand their employees better and provide them with the support they need.”
According to a report by Dr. Allison Milner and Dr. Phillip Law from the University of Melbourne, one in five construction workers struggle with mental health issues, which has been correlated with high rates of suicide. The report suggested that several company based programs that promoted education, stress reduction and awareness made a significant impact on the test group’s overall wellness.
You 2.0’s wellness experts develop programming through the study and aggregation of best practices. They then work with a content team to simplify and gamify the activities. With quick wins and incentivization, You 2.0 is designed to attract and engage more people for a longer period of time.
