Mental health is a growing concern in today’s workplace, with stress and burnout becoming increasingly common among employees. Many of the issues are related to technology, hybrid working, or Gen Z apathy, however, new technologies such as AI and Psychology focused gamification are offering innovative solutions to promote mental health and wellbeing in organizations. Here are some ways the Global Mentor Exchange is leveraging these technologies through its Wisdom City Metaverse.
Personalized stress management: the interactive AI can offer personalized stress management resources employees can access within the metaverse to HR professionals based on their companies’ policies and specific needs.
Early identification of burnout: AI generated learning and problem solving scenarios can be fun and educational, but also analyze user data to identify potential signs of burnout based on decisions and patterns withing the virtual world. This can help HR professionals and their coaches or trainers to address the issue before it becomes more severe.
Support for HR professionals: The GME AI can provide HR professionals tools that will make their job easier and faster, making managing workload more effective or using AI data to create real world ways to build resilience. This can help employees (and HR) stay engaged and productive, while also reducing the risk of burnout.
Empowering users: AI can empower users to take control of their mental health by providing tools and resources to help manage stress and anxiety. For example, the AI can provide GME users with personalized recommendations for gamified quests that will not only help them in reducing stress, but also improve their competencies, attitudes and mindset that support extraordinary mental health.
Collaboration and social support: AI can facilitate collaboration and social support among HR professionals, allowing them to connect with peers and mentors who may be experiencing similar challenges. This can help to reduce feelings of isolation and promote a sense of community.
The AI Mentor: In Wisdom City an AI avatar can create a safe environment for employees to talk about their stress without any judgment. The AI can then create personalized wisdom that promotes stress management, mindfulness, and a better attitude.
AI Generated Gamified Wellness Simulations: a gamified wellness program could encourage healthy behaviors and social support.
