Microsoft Teams Can Share Fitness Habits With Stressed, Overworked Users.

Working From Home? Microsoft Teams Can Share Fitness Habits With Stressed, Overworked Users.


Joye’s Stress Busters are two-minute breathing techniques that streamlines the mind at any critical time when it senses that there is a high probability of stress affecting the user’s mental fitness.



As the work from home continues for most of the employees due to the ongoing COVID pandemic, Microsoft has made a plan to make its video conferencing platform Teams be more sensitive towards overstressed users.


With the new feature from MS Teams, the users can manage their daily well-being and practice breathing exercises to boost stress while at work.


This is being offered in collaboration with Joye, a Singapore-based wellbeing technology company. Microsoft Teams administrators can easily turn Joye on for the organization with a single click from the Teams' app store.


As the studies find that mental wellbeing has a significant impact of 35 percent on productivity, Joye has prepared this new innovation for the mental wellbeing of users to sustain a mental fitness habit.


As per the updates, the Microsoft Teams administrators can easily turn Joye on for the organization with a single click from the Teams’ app store.


Joye analyses work patterns in Microsoft Teams and send suggestions. This is empowering every employee in the hybrid workplace - especially when they are lonely, overworked and stressed said Sanjeev Magotra, Founder and CEO of Joye.


For example, Joye's Daily Brew empowers users to measure and manage their daily well-being.


The user can speak, write, or follow a guided reflection in a safe and anonymized space. Joye's AI is trained to recognize the user's unique situation and then assist them with joy-level mood analytics, behavioral coaching, and short podcasts.


"Microsoft Teams users can enjoy options to build and cement their habit of mental fitness and personal well-being, as they use the Teams platform for events, employee experiences, communications, and collaboration in a secure way," said Joanna Lim, Business Group lead, Modern Work & Security, Microsoft Singapore.

How it works? Joye will analyze the work patterns in Microsoft Teams and will send suggestions accordingly. This innovation will empower every employee in the hybrid workplace – especially when they are lonely, overworked and stressed.

However, the firm claims that Joye does not share individual data with the employer or anyone else, and to help corporations develop data-driven wellbeing programmes, Joye can consolidate the anonymized data as a management dashboard of the daily emotional health of the organization.


With studies finding that mental wellbeing has a significant impact of 35 per cent on productivity, and inspired by how '10,000 steps' revolutionized physical fitness a decade ago, Joye weaves mental wellbeing into daily work-life to help users build and sustain a mental fitness habit.


The company said, Joye does not share individual data with the employer or anyone else. Joye follows GDPR guidelines and user’s inputs are anonymized.
