What is Well-being Essentials?

Well-being Essentials is a whole new approach to team member well-being that focuses on the emotional and essential needs of all employees, offering them opportunities to bring their best self to life. It is comprised of two products available through a company called Kumanu; Resourceful and Purposeful. 

What is Resourceful?

Resourceful is a confidential, customized resource center that integrates all of Baystate’s well-being resources so they are easier to access, as well as provides local and national access to resources for financial counseling and assistance, transportation, childcare, housing, mental health support, social connection, food access and more to help all employees with day-to-day challenges.  After completing the quick, confidential Wellbeing Check-in you will have access to your personalized resource center.
