Why Workers 1st Call Resonates with Me


As someone who has built a 40-year career as a business owner and entrepreneur, employing hundreds of people, I’ve witnessed firsthand how emotional wellbeing impacts employee health and safety. The mental health challenges we currently face were exacerbated by the pandemic and have led to increased levels of stress and anxiety.


Recent statistics reveal that in 2023, 84% of workers experienced at least one mental health challenge, with 71% reporting symptoms of stress (American Psychological Association). These emotional issues have manifested in physical problems such as sleep disorders, headaches, and fatigue. Furthermore, the heightened workplace stress has impaired focus and decision-making, raising concerns about workplace safety and contributing to more frequent injuries (National Safety Council).


That’s why a program like Workers1stCall is so compelling. It directly addresses the root causes of these issues, fostering a healthier, happier, and ultimately more productive workforce.


The Problem: The Domino Effect of Unmanaged Stress

We all know that happy employees are productive employees. However, many underestimate the domino effect that unaddressed emotional issues can have on a business. Stress and anxiety can cause sleep problems, headaches, and digestive issues. These health concerns often lead to increased absenteeism and decreased productivity. Worry consumes mental energy, making it difficult to concentrate on tasks. This can result in mistakes, accidents, and even workplace injuries (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention).


The Solution: Workers 1st Call

Workers 1st Call offers a comprehensive solution that tackles these challenges head-on, improving both employee wellbeing and workplace culture.


Workplace Injury Triage: Triage of minor workplace injuries can reduce potential high dollar ER claims which can reduce overall workers comp costs.. A Triage nurse not only provides guidance when a workplace injury occurs but also records all calls and completes all of the state-specific required forms when an injury happens (National Safety Council).


Mental Health Support: Providing confidential access to mental health professionals allows employees to address stress and emotional issues before they escalate. This proactive approach can lead to a healthier workforce and a safer work environment. 

According to the American Institute of Stress, stress-related issues cost U.S. businesses up to $300 billion annually due to absenteeism, turnover, diminished productivity, and medical, legal, and insurance costs (American Institute of Stress).


Organizational Well-Being: Every organization wants to improve their organizational culture. This comes about through good communication and the behavioral health support that our program provides. Workers 1st Call, powered by an AI-driven platform from Health Karma, fosters a culture of trust and allows employees to voice their concerns in a secure and confidential manner. This two-way communication empowers you to address their needs and concerns directly, while also providing valuable data-driven insights for continuous improvement. The engagement platform coupled with the availability of 24/7/365 behavioral health consultations are the two key ingredients in this product.
