WHM has gone digital! More and more people don’t work at a company’s central offices. They may telecommute and work from home, or they may work in the field (e.g. sales) or in other branches, thus they may not have access to any WHM measures offered on location. Therefore, we have been offering digital WHM since 2016.
The term “digital Workplace Health Management” means the use of digital methods, tools and measures in WHM in private and public institutions. The digitisation of WHM goes hand in hand with the emerging challenges of an increasingly digitised working world. In addition to new fields of activity, digital WHM differs from classic Workplace Health Management through the use of online coaching, health platforms, comprehensive WHM systems, health apps, and wearables.
