Understanding what moves your employees

Your employees have a lot to say

It is stressful in any case, but whether you simply let the stress culture run its course or whether you work together to create a place where everyone enjoys working, based on your team’s experiences of stress, even when a high level of commitment and performance is required – this creates a unique corporate culture and ensures a sense of solidarity.

Stories are authentic and make challenges tangible.

Stories can help you to grow and learn – personally or as an organization, to develop further and to be “the place to be” internally or on the job market.

Better linked provides you with your own Company-“Safe -Space” where employees can anonymously discuss stress issues on an individual, cultural or structural level and are thus actively involved in shaping an appreciative corporate culture.

As a manager, you fulfill your social responsibility by using the ANONYM data evaluated in your Company”Safe -Space” to identify precisely where there is still room for improvement in your company, because you can only change what you measure. Put your employees in the spotlight and you will also gain a human element, meaning and purpose!

Making stress visible

Do you know which members of staff in your company suffer from stress without actually communicating this thereby involuntarily decreasing employee efficiency? In Austria, according to estimates by human resource experts interviewed within the framework of a qualitative survey by Better linked, around two thirds of employees (65%) do – because occupational stress is still a taboo subject.

Since it is often interpreted by those affected as a personal failure, negative stress is preferably swept under the carpet and simply ignored: Did you know that most employees worldwide would rather confide in a robot that they are stressed at work than in their boss? This was the conclusion of a global study conducted in 2020 (Workplace Intelligence, LLC), in which four-fifths (82%) of respondents said precisely that. The HR experts interviewed in Austria estimate that the share of these colleagues is half as high, i.e. around 40 percent of all employees.

There is no reliable data on the costs of stress-related absences from work in Austria due to the taboo surrounding work-related stress but from an economic point of view, the problem also affects society as a whole. German studies, such as the Stress Report or the DAK Health Report, assume an increase in stress thus indicating rising costs.

At company level, several studies now show highly significant, positive correlations between an empowering corporate culture and increased productivity, with burnout rates falling significantly.

Companies that pay attention to the well-being of their employees are three times more successful.


Make stress issues transparent – transparency makes them workable

Create a trusting environment and provide your team with their own company “safe space”. Through individual registration, we ensure that all employees operate on the ANONYM communication platform. This trusting framework enables all employees to have a constructive exchange on current challenges and stresses, namely

  • individual stress issues, because everyone has already successfully solved stress problems
  • stressors from the company structure and organization that may be blocking workflows or slowing down processes,
  • but also the culture that is practiced in your company on a daily basis.

Transformation and permanent change ensure that there is plenty of content that requires intensive discussion at all levels.
By involving your employees, you enable them to

  • share knowledge,
  • active participation and
  • constructive involvement in the daily improvement of their working environment.


Knowing the stressors in your company down to the last detail gives you a decisive competitive advantage. Your company’s communication data provides you with a transparent analysis of the often hidden factors and strongest drivers,

  • that keep the stress level in your company high or
  • block or prevent change and transformation.


Fact-based findings, based exclusively on anonymized correlations of stress issues, and making it possible to differentiate between the causes and effects of stress will help you to make successful decisions and bring more calm to your company.

Many stress issues are avoidable – invest in prevention

Individual empowerment of your employees is very important to us. By actively participating in the processing of internal stressors, your employees experience appreciation, their work is seen and their opinions are heard.

This also encourages your employees to seek support at an early stage when it comes to individual stress issues. Recognizing cultural and structural stressors in good time ensures that the stress level in the company does not rise unnoticed and that stress phases are cushioned and managed preventively.

Companies and managers are enabled to preventively ensure less stress despite high workloads and increase the resilience of their employees. Productivity and performance succeed with a healthy work-health balance.

With the first (German-language) platform that deals with the topic of stress, we strengthen the self-efficacy and resilience of your company and your employees.
