It’s no secret that the pandemic has been hard on everyone, from home life to work life to work-from-home life. Taking care of employees and their mental health is more important than ever before. Studies report that employees are experiencing a growing toll on their mental health while working more hours, feeling closer to burnout, and lacking the encouragement of social interaction at work.
How can employers support their team members and promote beneficial mental health practices? We certainly don’t have all the answers, but we do have Private Virtual Concerts, the hand-curated event that gives your employees a break while boosting team morale.
Wondering how a livestream concert could help employees fight pandemic burnout? Let us count the ways.
Around the world, music is universally linked to pleasure. Music is proven to boost endorphins and relax the listener, leaving your team feeling refreshed and inspired while giving people something to look forward to in their work week.
Not only does music feel good, it’s proven to produce cortisol in the brain and reduce stress. Participants in this study showed a 26% drop in anxiety levels after listening to music for thirty minutes, and those health effects aren’t isolated to just anxiety levels. Music can also be used to treat pain, and long-term listening habits result in lower stress levels, better heart health, and lower rates of cardiac deaths.
Looking to take some pressure off your team members and give them a bit of relief from long hours? A private virtual concert will take some anxiety off their plate (and yours too). Give your team a much-needed break from reality and escape into a world of soothing melodies or lively tunes. They’ve put in the long hours in one of the hardest years (ever?), an live online show where they can sit back, relax, and take their mind away from their inbox, is one small way to reward them for their hard work.
From those who are looking for a break from professional communication, to the extroverts dying to chat about something other than work, these events are as interactive as your employees choose to make them. Sit back with your camera off and chill out during a live show, interact with the show MC at your own pace, or hop on the chat and connect with your colleagues over the moving performance — the choice is yours!
