Aiming high — Wellme app enhances peoples´ wellbeing and helps their workplace productivity
There are hundreds of smartphone applications nowadays available for download which try to help its users with wellness and mindfulness, but there is not any one which would be so comprehensive with its features and functioning ecosystem as the one called Wellmee. “At Wellmee we are not reinventing the wheel. We build on the major findings of latest decades on the topics of positive psychology, wellbeing, happiness and a flourishing life,” says founder of Wellmee Milan Vlcek.
Wellmee is very ambitious, its aim is to apply findings of researches in Positive psychology and combine it with up to date modern technologies, so it serves people. Therefore, the users will be able through the application to have covered several different areas which all together improve their wellbeing.
“This is right. At Wellmee we are not reinventing the wheel. We build on the major findings of latest decades on the topics of positive psychology, wellbeing, happiness and a flourishing life. Combining it with provenly effective technology solutions to create truly functional application,“ explains the founder of the project.
There are eight areas which will be proposed to the user to enhance his/her wellbeing and tracked so it can be evaluated. „The evaluation of the application usage is possible, but it is not necessary. Next to the fact that we want to create a helpful application for everyone, it is the fact that we want to build it so it fits in the ecosystem of employees, employers and marketplaces, “ says Vlcek. „It is obvious that when you enhance wellbeing of someone, you make him also happier. Research shows that happier people are up to 20% more productive at work,“ he adds.
In fact there are plenty of relevant studies which describes the issue with low productivity in workplace due to the lack of employee happiness and disengagement. For instance, according to American global performance-management consulting company Gallup, unhappy workers cost the U.S. itself between $450 and $550 billion in lost productivity each year.
So, creating an app which would solve a wellbeing of its user on the one hand, and helping employers to have more engaged employees at work, is highly desirable.
And how they want to do it at Wellmee?
To start simple, in the background of Welmee app the model understands that there are three groups in which all of the users will fit no matter what age, occupation or religion they belong to, in both short term and long term. These groups are happiness, unhappiness and depression. After the app recognizes in which of the groups the current mood of the user is in, the approach to him/her is set accordingly.
Based on standard user-interface components (metaphors, mental models, navigation, interaction, and appearance) — from navigation part mainly search field, sliders, icons and image carousel — the application will easily recognize what the current mood of the user is. After deeper interaction, and if the user is open to share information with the app, it will be possible to take into consideration also the age, social status (family, job occupation, etc.), character of the person, and plenty of other factors. Obviously, this additional information is securely stored in the app, for the user, so that the app provides him the best possible unique content.
The Wellmee app is meant to work for both Android and iOS systems and its development is depend on successful fundraising through initial token offering planned for November 2018. You can find more information about this project at www.wellmee.com .
