Singapore, 20 November 2020: Thrive Global Asia Pacific (APAC) and Thrive HR Exchange
(powered by ChapmanV) have announced a partnership to address wellness in workplaces
throughout Southeast Asia, thereby enabling businesses to facilitate wellbeing and help drive
engagement and performance.
Thrive Global, a leading corporate behaviour change tech company, was founded by the
Huffington Post’s Arianna Huffington in 2016 after she faced her own personal struggles with
burnout at work.
To date, the organization has helped over 100 businesses globally to drive wellness and productivity in their workforces through its behaviour change technology.
In September, Thrive Global partnered with Monash University to launch Thrive Global APAC to
share Thrive’s vision and values across the Asia Pacific region. Monash Business School was
the first business school in the world to embed Thrive Global programs at the core of its
prestigious Global Executive MBA program.
Founded by Matt Chapman of ChapmanCG, a global premier HR Executive Search firm, and Stephanie Nash, a Global HR Leader with more than 25 years’ experience, Thrive HR
Exchange is a global community platform bringing together HR professionals and people
leaders to co-create the future of work.
A dynamic, positive force for progress in the industry, Thrive HR Exchange offers compassionate support, meaningful collaboration, dedicated mentorship and best practice sharing to make the HR leaders of today – and tomorrow – become agents of change within their industries.
Thrive Global’s platform currently offers six programs developed in partnership with the world’s
leading scientific institutions, as well as a behavioural change platform which uses AI and
machine learning to create an engaging, personalized experience that helps move individuals
from awareness to action.
The Thrive Platform allows for a measurable and flexible approach in addressing organizations unique needs.
Through the new partnership, members of Thrive HR Exchange will have access to Thrive Global’s library of comprehensive content, designed and curated to help instil new behaviours, protect mental health and lift performance.
As organizations globally are taking steps to recover from economic hardship caused by the
COVID-19 pandemic, uncertainty about the future, greater responsibility, and fewer resources
is driving unprecedented levels of stress and burnout among employees.
“The business world was already in a mental health crisis before COVID-19, and this pandemic
has only amplified the issue,” said Arianna Huffington. “In ordinary times, being able to
manage stress and build resilience is important — and right now, it’s essential. Employee
wellbeing underpins corporate performance and is a catalyst for growth.”
