De-stress: How We Do it in Zoala

We hear the word “stress” all the time, and that’s because it IS around us all the time. It’s commonly agreed that stress drives motivation and focus, but we must be mindful of the tipping point over bad stress. 

So, When does stress become bad stress?


In the workplace, talents experience bad stress when the job demands trigger negative physical and emotional responses. Some examples could be long working hours, inflexible schedules and unresolved conflicts with coworkers. For talents, prolonged stress deteriorates both their physical and mental health. For companies, employee engagement and productivity plummets. This is undoubtedly a lose-lose situation!

In Zoala, we’re all about #mentalwellnessfirst. We try to balance championing mental health for our adolescents and users through our solution and our own talents’ mental health. If you’ve heard the phrase “happy wife, happy life”, you’ll understand “happy employee, company steady”.

Some super fun initiatives Zoala currently have are:​
