A provider of global workplace wellbeing solutions has revealed a number of senior strategic hires.

Unmind, which has partnered with companies including Yahoo, Ovo and Calix in the last 12 months, says it has also evolved from an app-based product to a data-driven, science-led enterprise platform that improves the performance and productivity of an organisation’s people.

Now used in over 150 countries and available in seven additional languages, the platform has seen integrations with Slack and Teams to embed wellbeing into the flow of work for client organisations.

With aspirations of becoming a £100 million operation, a number of C-suite moves and hires have been announced.

Mike McGuire joins as chief commercial officer following 10 years of building high-performing teams as a vice president at Salesforce and GM at tech unicorn Iterable. 

Amber Coster now leads as chief operating officer. Coster has held vice president positions at hyper-growth companies ClickUp and AppDynamics.

Gavin Wade, who joined Unmind as VP of product in 2021, becomes chief product officer, completing an executive leadership team alongside scaleup veteran CFO Mong-Trang Sarrazin, seasoned tech leader CTO Phil Mullan, co-founder and chief wellbeing officer Steve Peralta, and co-founder and CEO Dr Nick Taylor. 

Among the evolved proposition is Unmind Talk. Following the acquisition of Dublin-based Frankie Health in early 2023, this offers employees personal sessions with experienced therapists and coaches, bookable in minutes.

Unmind Insights is a data-driven approach to measuring, understanding and enacting change within organisations, while demonstrating ROI with an industry-leading financial impact calculator that quantifies the commercial imperative of wellbeing.

Unmind Help offers employees immediate access to crisis support through a 24/7 phone line staffed by trained counsellors. Employees can also get expert legal and financial guidance, as well as access to critical incident support delivered on-site by specialists. 

Unmind Exec has been developed to educate the C-suite on the critical role mental health plays in overall organisational performance.

Unmind has also published three peer-reviewed pilot Randomised Controlled Trials (RCTs) in leading journals, with results indicating the platform can significantly improve sleep, low mood and common mental health difficulties, as well as reduce presenteeism. 

eCommerce high-flyer’s mental health mission

“We continue to live in turbulent times,” said Dr Taylor. “Taking a proactive approach to workplace wellbeing has always been key to performance – now it’s mission critical for businesses to support their people and improve their productivity. 

“We’ve taken some bold steps to innovate our services to offer a truly transformative platform for clients, and have completed a highly experienced exec team who can deliver it. Now we’re eager to realise our vision of a world where mental health is universally understood, nurtured and celebrated.”
