The StartOrganic team manages all aspects of development for the online course content for HPE from advisory services, recorded topic-specific courses and three live webinars twice a month in three different time zones to target a global audience. The program is offered to all HPE employees worldwide, including employees in the Americas, Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia Pacific, Japan, India, Southeast Asia and Australia.
“I would definitely recommend companies to include StartOrganic in their line of wellness programs,” said Allison Stark, manager, global wellness for Hewlett Packard Enterprise. “It was an exciting addition to the HPE wellness program. StartOrganic offers a new approach to supporting the mental health of its employees, especially as the pandemic has forced us to consider new ways to engage team members. Everyone looks forward to planting their gardens, engaging with their families, connecting in new ways with other team members, and literally seeing the fruits of their labor. The StartOrganic team was creative and flexible and developed a program that serves our diverse global team and continuously involves them through personal interaction with participants. This program goes beyond traditional webinar training and offers individual support so that everyone involved can feel successful and successful. ”
StartOrganic’s online courses support a diverse group of gardeners, from beginners to experts. The team members have provided positive feedback, made progress in achieving their own gardening goals, and also connected with other team members who share a passion for gardening. So far, more than 400 employees have participated in the StartOrganic online course “How to start your successful garden” with an average of one new employee per day. The program helps HPE employees develop the skills necessary to grow a successful home garden of any size – from a small area of containers on a patio balcony to a larger sustainable garden in a back yard. The positive effects of gardening are backed by a wealth of research showing that it reduces depression and anxiety while providing multiple emotional, social, professional, physical, and spiritual benefits.
