How OrbisCure works

Monthly stress measurement

Every month, employees pick up on early stress with a mandatory, scientifically validated 2-minute survey.

HR also receives a monthly anonymized report so you can proactively support challenged teams.

Immediate self-help

Employees have access to short videos with advice and exercises developed by Danish doctors and psychologists. All content is evidence-based.

The exercises also address challenges in private life, e.g. if you are a parent of children with anxiety or ADHD.

On-demand psychologists

Employees with high stress can book consultations directly in the app with one of OrbisCure's in-house psychologists. Typical waiting time is under 24 hours.

Tools for managers

Situational tools help managers deal with typical challenges related to stress. Both on an individual and team level.

Frequently asked questions

Is it GDPR compliant?

OrbisCure is subject to the Personal Data Act, and all GDPR has been created in close collaboration with a professional law firm. At the same time, we have another security layer, which means that all data is useless if it is attempted to be stolen. We really mean it when we say we take security seriously.

Is it anonymous?

We recognize that stress and the need for help can be very private matters for employees. That's why we ensure that we always aggregate data from at least 5 employees in the monthly reports to management. If a department has fewer than 5 employees, their report is combined with reports from other departments under the same manager. At the end of each month, management also receives an anonymous breakdown of the number of calls booked in the previous month.

Will the app continue to be used by employees over time?

Since the measurements are mandatory, employees continue to use the app month after month.

We already have a health insurance?

OrbisCure intervenes at the first signs of stress and prevents it from escalating to a level that requires treatment. In special cases where clinical therapy is needed, OrbisCure assists the employee in accessing the relevant services through your health insurance.

Do you follow any guidelines?

The content in OrbisCure's apps is based on evolutionary psychology and the principles of cognitive behavioral therapy and its further development. All content is evidence-based and developed in collaboration with leading doctors and psychologists.

Does talking about stress make employees stressed?

Our customers find that it becomes easier for their employees to talk about stress and approach their leader if they are going through a stressful period, regardless of whether it's related to work or their private life. The result is that leaders can provide immediate assistance, for example, by offering flexible working hours or redistributing tasks, until the employee regains balance.
