Supporting Mental Health and Well-being at trivago
At trivago, our mission is to empower our talents to thrive both personally and professionally. Mental health greatly influences the way we feel, think, and act. We want to make sure that our talents have the support they need and the tools to help them reach their full potential. We strive to achieve this through a carefully curated range of perks and benefits designed to support our talents’ mental health and overall well-being. In this article, we’ll take you through some of the ways we support mental well-being at trivago.
Mental Health Support and Personal Development with Likeminded
We’ve partnered with Likeminded – a digital platform that provides a holistic approach to development at work and mental well-being. With Likeminded, our talents can have one-on-one sessions with certified professionals, join group workshops, or take advantage of the media library that includes guided audio exercises and meditations. They have access to professional psychologists, therapists, and coaches who can support them on their journey of growth. The service can be used for both professional and private needs.
Flexibility and Work-Life Balance
A healthy work-life balance is an important factor closely connected to mental and physical health, which is why flexibility is a key component of our working culture. Our hybrid work model allows our team to split their time between working from home and the office, with 3 days of in-person collaboration at our Düsseldorf campus and 2 days of mobile work. We also offer further flexibility for parents of young children and talents with severe disabilities or health conditions.
Since day one, we’ve believed that productivity and performance aren’t measured by set hours, so we let our talents choose their own working hours and vacation days. We trust them to manage their productivity, ensuring performance and team collaboration remain unaffected. Additionally, our annual week off, known as “trivacation”, allows all teams to disconnect and rest at the same time.
Regular physical activity can reduce stress, anxiety and contribute to overall well-being. That’s why we’ve made sports and fitness activities easily accessible to our talents. They can enjoy a workout just a few steps away from their desks (at no cost). Whether it’s a weekly yoga or mobility class, a visit to our campus gym, or a run on our rooftop running track, there’s something for everyone, including different off-site activities initiated by our talents like football, tennis, badminton, swimming, and more.
Health and Well-being Days
We recently hosted a dedicated Health and Well-being Day on our campus. The day was designed to help our talents prioritize their physical and mental health, offering a range of activities to support their well-being. This included interactive sessions and live meditations with our partner Likeminded, where talents could learn strategies and engage in exercises to nurture their mental health. In collaboration with our insurance partner Techniker Krankenkasse, we provided personalized health coaching, offering one-on-one guidance to analyze and improve sleep habits and stress management. TK specialists shared easy-to-implement tips and exercises tailored to individual needs. Arbeiter-Samariter-Bund, our longstanding partner in training all First Aiders in the company, conducted health measurements and shared tips on leading a healthy lifestyle. Throughout the day, talents also had the opportunity for individual fitness analysis sessions with our fitness trainer Patrick Cole, who shared personalized training tips.
We’re shaping a workplace culture where every talent can thrive, providing the necessary tools and support for their personal and professional growth and well-being. This journey is continuous, and we adjust and improve based on the feedback from our talents.
