WhiteSpace Case Study

When a high-performing group from a Fortune 1000 pharmaceutical company called us, they needed to rescue their team members from stress and overload.

Most worked 50 hours or more per week, yet work piled up faster than it could be completed. A shocking 100% of managers reported a constant conflict between work and personal life.

INTERVENTION: A lightweight one-year program of WhiteSpace digital coursework, augmented by webinars and some executive work.

RESULTS: The data below illustrates the improvements that our population experienced. The most impressive thing about these results is that they were maintained, at time of last survey, for more than 18 months following the conclusion of the intervention.

Stress

22% decrease in overall stress level

Overwhelm

20% decrease in work piling-up faster than it can be completed

Disruption
