Sorbet Launches Employee Wellness Platform to Encourage Professionals to Use Their Paid Time Off

Updated: May 29, 2022

Sorbet applies AI and behavioral science to craft customized Time Off Plans for employees to enjoy frequent micro-breaks throughout their calendar year.

Employee Wellness Platform

We’re excited to announce the launch of Sorbet, an employee wellness platform that encourages and incentivizes professionals to take meaningful time off. We are dedicated to the concept that professionals, on both the employer and employee level, need to make a major shift in terms of how they prioritize mental health.

It starts with breaking the culture of “overwork”. We believe that company leadership needs to take responsibility for promoting a healthy work / life balance. The result is powerful and can create ripples of positivity for both the employer and the employee, including increased retention, reduced attrition, improved job performance, and improved mental clarity, motivation, and productivity. Plus, employers can reduce unused Paid Time Off and carryover liabilities.

Workers’ reluctance to take time off has been an issue for years. According to research from the U.S. Travel Association, Oxford Economics and Ipsos, in 2018, 55% of employees didn’t use all of their time off, leading to 768 Million unused days nationwide. Why?

  • Perception: People have a fear of being replaceable and don’t want to appear less dedicated.

  • Workload: People have ‘too much’ on their plates, and are fearful to return to a mountain of work.
