New courses from OpenMind and OpenSesame equip companies with wellness and mindfulness training designed to help working professionals find more balance
Portland, OR – 3 November 2020 – OpenSesame, the elearning innovator, announced the addition of OpenMind to its popular OpenSesame Plus subscription to expand its library of corporate wellness courses. These new courses, developed exclusively for OpenSesame, pair short, introductory-level courses with downloadable resources that help employees incorporate mindfulness into their daily routines.
“Keeping employees focused, engaged, healthy and happy is more important than ever,” said Spencer Thornton, Senior Vice President of Curation at OpenSesame. “Being successful in today’s environment of constant change takes more than technical skills; it requires knowing how to handle stress, build resilience, solve problems, and take care of both your mind and body. I’m excited to welcome this unique offering of mindfulness and corporate wellness courses to our catalog.”
OpenMind’s cinema-style, video-based training walks learners through instructor-led exercises in meditation, breathing, nutrition, stress reduction, focus and other topics proven to help create happier, healthier workforces and improve productivity. Learners will want to return to these courses again and again as they develop and hone self-care practices they can use at work, at home, or on the road.
“We recognized a growing market demand for mindfulness and wellness training, particularly with the additional stress and anxiety people are experiencing this year,” said Dave McFarland, Senior Manager of Content at OpenSesame. “OpenMind makes mindfulness more accessible by illustrating how practices like meditation or yoga can seamlessly fit into employees’ busy schedules. I’m delighted to bring our customers such high-quality original content through our partnership with OpenMind, whose courses are available exclusively in the OpenSesame catalog.”
