Arianna Huffington Teams Up with SAP to End Employee Burn Out

SAP and Arianna Huffington’s Thrive Global are forming a partnership that will enable SAP SuccessFactors customers to improve employee health and well-being.

“Many organizations are beginning to realize the healthier and happier we are as people, the more creative and productive we’ll be as employees,” said Arianna Huffington, founder and CEO of Thrive Global. “Through our partnership with SAP SuccessFactors, we’re excited to bring health and well-being to the forefront of corporate planning, placing employees and businesses in a position to thrive.”

Leveraging SAP SuccessFactors analytics and intelligent services capabilities, Thrive Global and SAP will jointly create a library of personalized pathways targeted to specific employee needs and triggered by key life and work events.

SAP SuccessFactors customers will receive access to exclusive Thrive pathways designed to improve employee well-being and productivity and encourage positive behavior changes.

These will be delivered via the SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central and SAP SuccessFactors Learning Management solutions.

Each pathway will be activated when a user chooses to participate in a Thrive Pulse survey, which will provide immediate feedback and links to science-based courses that have been developed and tested in organizations globally.

The first pathway will focus on improving productivity in the workplace by adopting behavior changes to better manage employees’ relationship with technology, empowering them to unplug, recharge, build resilience, and create more meaningful connections in their work and their life.

Using machine learning and analytics, SAP and Thrive Global will also integrate Thrive behavior content into key parts of SAP’s value chain, leading to fuller participation and deeper engagement by employees, and resulting in employees getting more value from SAP SuccessFactors solutions and benefitting personally and professionally from Thrive’s behavior change content.

“SAP and Thrive Global are two organizations aligned with the unifying vision to help improve people’s lives, and this partnership is built upon a purpose-driven commitment to help the world run better,” said Jennifer Morgan, member of the executive board at SAP. “The world can only achieve its highest potential when each and every one of us is healthy, happy, and inspired to do our very best. And we are proud to partner with Arianna and the Thrive team to lead this effort for our customers.”
