Tech Mahindra, a leading provider of digital transformation, consulting, and business re-engineering services and solutions, adopted a multifaceted approach for its employee wellness needs. The company relied on personalised technology solutions to ensure employee well-being during the pandemic while maintaining business continuity. Its AI Coach tool uses positive reinforcements to nudge managers in improving their frequency of communication, reducing negative tones, using positive vocabulary, and recognising good work. This not only promotes psychological safety at the workplace but also improves managerial effectiveness and employee morale.

Tech Mahindra believes that ensuring a healthy workplace is more than just preventing illness, injuries and accidents. It’s a positive approach to improving the overall well-being of an organisation, its employees and their loved ones. Over 10,000 employees participated in their ‘Wellness 101 Challenge’, a global wellness contest to focus on physical and emotional wellbeing . The ‘Kick the Butt’ smoking cessation programme also witnessed a 79.4% increase in annual engagement, and 10% of the participants reduced daily cigarettes by 100%, 23% cut them by 50%, and 7% reduced them to 1 per day..
