Episode 63: S6E8 – Self-care, Global Impact
On today’s episode, Tom Dunlap chats with Braven Greenelsh about Three Good, a platform that helps mitigate early signs of burnout in employees.
With anonymous surveys and other tools, employees get a chance to express themselves while employers get a touch on the corporate pulse. In answering questions, responding to feelers, and engaging with the platform, employees rack up points that Three Good then converts to donations to charities. By taking care of themselves, they can help take care of others.
Listen to Tom and Braven discuss Mental Health:
What is Three Good? (2:18)
Three Good is a platform to aid HR in the current struggles with mental health, employee burnout and attrition. Three Good gives HR the tools such as survey questions, data, and early indicators of what will later become big problems.
Early Intervention (5:02)
Three Good differs from other platforms as it focuses on early intervention. By anonymously asking questions via the platform about stress and anxiety, it can help mitigate a problem before it worsens.
A Corporate Pulse (6:33)
If an employee “spills their guts” to the bot, that information is protected and not shared with anyone else. However, Three Good allows employers to get an idea of the corporate pulse by having their team either give a thumbs up or a thumbs down to certain questions. These specific questions focus on self-care, community, culture, and inclusion.
