PROBLEM STATEMENT + RESEARCH INSIGHTS
Working from home has created a poor work-life balance for many individuals, it has also left individuals feeling disconnected from their coworkers, their workplace, and its culture.
We found that the community experience, casual interactions between coworkers, and overall fun that exists in a physical workplace create an extremely healthy and productive environment for individuals to work in. These elements were missing from the remote workplace and we began to explore how we could incorporate them into the work from home environments for employees.
Wiwo is a platform dedicated to enriching the work-from-home experience. Wiwo allows the employer to
monitor or keep track of an employee's well-being. Wiwo creates opportunities for casual interactions between
coworkers. It helps employees take productive breaks & prevent burnout. Wiwo also enhances the community
experience through fun within remote workplaces. Wiwo allows employees to organize their workday, pause
and decompress when they need to & associate their remote workplace with pleasurable experiences.
Wiwo was designed to introduce the culture experienced in a physical workspace within the work-from-home
space. Wiwo is built upon the belief that fun, happiness, and a balanced mental state can boost productivity,
thus helping not only employees but companies and our world as a whole.
