Help Your Team Bring Their Whole Selves to Work

How to do it and why it’s critical.

If you’ve been following our journey, you already know that at LYLA, we’ve always believed in order for our society to thrive, we need to bring our entire selves to work.

As of August 2021, 55% of the American workforce planned to leave their current roles within 12 months—and the need for greater flexibility was the top reason cited.

When we try to keep our lives neatly divided into separate boxes: work, family, spiritual life, wellness . . . that sort of compartmentalization only makes the struggle more arduous and the risk of burnout greater. We need to be able to deal with children, with aging parents, with our own physical and mental health . . . and we need our employers to provide the flexibility for us to move between those various life roles.

We’re not just workers.

We’re people. Fully-dimensional, complicated people.

And we work best when we don’t have to hide it.

LYLA provides a service that enables—and encourages—employees to live their full lives. Our app and 24/7 support center provide employers a way to acknowledge that their teams live rich, dynamic lives and that their employment is only one part of that.

When COVID changed the workplace last year, we realized we could be an integral part of the shift from supporting “workers” to supporting whole, real peopleregardless of where, when, or how those people get their work done.

We’ve been living in a constant state of flux: stay-at-home orders, working from home, new hours, reintroduction to the workplace, hybrid work. Throughout all of this, LYLA has been a constant for the employees we serve. Our commitment to accessibility has made it faster, safer, and easier for our clients’ employees to reach out for the help they need (all while protecting their privacy).

Through our personalized support and proactive programming, we’re reducing the stressors our users juggle. We handle all those little (and big) tasks that can make your employees feel like they’re not keeping their heads above water. By taking care of those projects, LYLA is getting ahead of the burnout and giving employees the breathing room they need to focus on what’s really important.

Everyone needs help sometimes. And the employees we serve know exactly where to turn when they need to find a dog walker for their day of back-to-back Zoom meetings. Or research local contractors when their plumbing goes out. Or ask for support resources for their child who’s struggling with the new school environment.

We support your employees in every facet of their lives—as whole humans, not just as workers. In fact, the average user leans on LYLA 3 times each month—and saves themselves approximately 16 hours in the process.

LYLA helps your employees feel supported, understood, and cared for. And with that support, they’re less likely to burn out. They’re more likely to feel satisfied with their work and their lives in general.

Simply by enrolling with LYLA, you can:

  • prevent burnout,
  • increase satisfaction, and
  • improve employee retention

All for less than what it would take for you to buy each employee one monthly Starbucks.

It’s time to support the fully-dimensional lives your employees live. Get started with LYLA.
