Client Impact

We create space to support each employee as a whole person so they can thrive at work and at home.

The following case studies are a representation of the impact of our Pause at Work programming on employees and organizations.

Case Study #1

SNHU logo.png

The data below represents our partnership with SNHU and approximately 100 leaders who participated in a 2-month program in two separate cohorts (cohort #1 in the spring of 2023 and cohort #2 in the fall of 2023). The results are based on a 27-question assessment taken by each cohort before and at the end of the program and measure results in four primary focus areas: STRESS RELIEF, MINDFUL AWARENESS, EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE, AND RESILIENCY.

"I learned how I can allow myself time in the day to pause, release tension, and stop to enjoy the pleasurable moments throughout the day."

PROGRAM PARTICIPANT

"I can handle stressful situations better and can take a calmer approach to tasks that used to frustrate me."

PROGRAM PARTICIPANT

Prior to taking the program, 50 percent of participants reported positive behaviors related to stress relief. At the end of the program, this metric increased to 81 percent (a positive increase of 31 percentage points).

"I learned to use physical pain as a red flag that its time to stop and self-assess. This allows me to pause, stretch, and breathe before continuing to the next task.”

"I find myself noticing small moments in the day that I normally ignore (complete silence except for nature sounds, nice weather, family moments), where I now actively stop, listen, and truly enjoy the moment. It brings me a lot of happiness now."

PROGRAM PARTICIPANT

"When I remember to pause, it helps me focus."

PROGRAM PARTICIPANT

Prior to taking the program, 57 percent of participants reported positive behaviors related to mindful awareness. At the end of the program, this metric increased to 90 percent (a positive increase of 33 percentage points).

Prior to taking the program, 64 percent of participants reported positive behaviors related to emotional intelligence. At the end of the program, this metric increased to 90 percent (a positive increase of 26 percentage points).

"I experienced a growing awareness of my emotions and reactions, so I'm better able to unhook from my emotions before I act."

PROGRAM PARTICIPANT

"I've caught myself in the moment getting frustrated or emotional and I'm able to stop and try to take the moment in as it is and then work through my feelings separately."

PROGRAM PARTICIPANT

Prior to taking the program, 75 percent of participants reported positive behaviors related to resiliency. At the end of the program, this metric increased to 92 percent (a positive increase of 17 percentage points).

"I immediately started sleeping better at night. I recognized that many of the techniques were becoming part of my everyday routine."

PROGRAM PARTICIPANT

"I particularly enjoyed connecting with colleagues from across the university that I may otherwise not have the opportunity to even meet and, because of the nature of this training, I feel a stronger kinship with them."

PROGRAM PARTICIPANT

"I am less drained at the end of each day, having taken time to set daily intentions, unhook from challenging emotions, and savor the positive experiences. It is a night and day difference that I am abundantly grateful for."

"Higher education has never been in a more stressful period of volatility and change. We asked Pause to do resiliency and stress relief work with my leadership team, with our leadership development program, and also more general staff sessions.

 

It has been one of our best investments. Our people are better equipped to handle the pressures of the work, feel more engaged, and I believe we will see stronger retention for those who completed a Pause workshop. It feels like we can breathe again. We knew Pause worked with some of the highest performing companies in the US. Now we know why."
