MinQi was born out of a realization: our modern worklife is too often destructive to our wellbeing and productivity. Rapid changes, increased future uncertainty, and the speed and loneliness of digital work environments are all stress amplifiers.

employees get sick with mental illness
absence days due to mental and behavioural disorders
the annual cost of ill-mental health in the workplace
To meet these challenges, MinQi defined three pillars, which guide our entire approach:
Be part of teams’ routines for more reach and retention - thanks to adapted content and tool integrations (Slack).
Reach the highest effect in the shortest
break time thanks to our science-backed MinQi method
Improve and protect the mental, physical and social dimensions of our wellbeing thanks to our all-rounded approach
It is not enough to offer an app to employees. To have an effect and not be neglected as soon as the days are too full, recharging moments must be integrated into teams' routine. And for more convenience, directly available in a few clicks. MinQi deploys adapted content, smart technologies and tool integrations to reach this aim.
The MinQi method was developed together with two medical doctors with the objective to ensure an effect after just a few minutes. And it works! The effectiveness of our MinQi has been confirmed by a study by the Ludwig-Maximilians-University.
- 30% stress after just three weeks of usage with one MinQi break a day (5-8 minutes)
MinQi meets the needs of employees and teams along the three pillars of employee wellbeing: Body, Mind and Social.
This holistic approach enables us to sustainably reduce stress and increase the wellbeing, team spirit and performance of teams.
