“Our whole world is becoming increasingly less purposeful, and as a result more depressed, more anxious,” says Vic Strecher, University of Michigan professor and CEO of Kumanu. “And we’re starting to lose direction in our lives.”
Strecher has dedicated his research to helping people find meaning in work and purpose in life. His current project aids this mission.
In this presentation, he describes Kumanu’s collaboration with the Harris Poll and the analytics methods used to answer questions like:
- Is there really a mental health crisis?
- Is purpose associated with mental health?
- Can companies help employees find professional fulfillment?
- What sorts of people would be interested in using an app to develop their purpose?
