Beating employee burnout before it happens

With burnout at an all-time high, supporting employees’ mental health and wellness is more important than ever. Managing stress, creating a sense of belonging, and infusing joy into your engagement strategy can have a big impact on employee wellbeing. 

Use Mainstay to automatically send employees mental health resources, share time-management tools, and provide encouragement during stressful times. Conversations with our behaviorally intelligent chatbots also provide a judgment-free space for employees to seek help or ask for guidance. If a conversation requires more personal attention, we will notify a member of your team so they can follow up one-on-one.

How to enhance your employee onboarding experience with Mainstay:


Creating a sense of belonging from the start

Engaging new hires before their start date opens the lines of communication, creates rapport, and builds excitement around their new position. Continuing the conversation throughout onboarding also ensures employees will be fully aligned with your company’s goals, so they’ll become more productive faster. 

We streamline this process for your entire organization with behaviorally intelligent chatbots that spark meaningful conversations, deliver relevant responses, and actively listen at scale to gather and provide you with real-time feedback to improve the new hire experience.  

Mainstay makes it easy to send automated, empathetic 2-way texts or Slack messages that provide real-time updates about insurance and vaccine policies, encourage employees to complete important onboarding tasks on time, and nudge them to submit benefit enrollment paperwork.

Why should you use SMS text messaging to engage your employees?


Inspiring and empowering your people — anytime, anywhere

When done right, employee engagement drives organizational success and reduces costly turnover. 

With Mainstay, you can use conversational 2-way texting and automated Slack messages to have meaningful conversations with employees, instantly answer their questions 24/7, and send encouraging nudges when they need to take action. Want to capture employee feedback so you can act before small problems become major challenges? We’ve got you covered there, too.

Our Employee Engagement Platform is proven to increase engagement, improve productivity, and boost employee satisfaction at scale. Employees respond to text messages faster and more consistently than they do to email. In fact, our partners achieve employee response rates of 80-90% when they use Mainstay’s platform to automatically text their employees.
