Howdy is an app for preventive measures of lack of well-being or stress.
The app is part of a comprehensive solution that companies subscribe to. It is not possible for private users to gain access without an invitation from their current workplace.
The employee answers five questions every 14 days. If the answers turns critical, either by a low score or decrease in measurements our professional industrial psychologists responds with a phone call. Answers are anonymous to the company.
The results are collected in anonymised reports subsequently sent to the company where they typically are handled by HR managers. Thus app dual function: to buoy the individual employee and provide management and HR an overview of where in the organization, there is a need for a special effort. The five questions is an internationally acclaimed satisfaction index developed by the Danish professor of clinical psychometry, Per Bech. There are made more than 200 scientific studies of the solution.
The solution has in many cases been found to reduce the number of stress-related absences.
There are three new features in this release:
1. Ability to see in the app when you will next time be queried about your wellbeing
2. Optional ability for employers to communicate directly to their users in a "mini portal"
3. Optional Howdy Body survey for asking about physical wellbeing
Up to six family members will be able to use this app with Family Sharing enabled.
