iACADEMY, industry partner to tackle mental health needs in the workplace
A game changer in education, iACADEMY rolls out an academe-industry collaboration with Taktyl Studios that tackles emerging mental health needs in the workplace.
Recognizing the need for individuals and institutions to prioritize mental health and wellbeing, the School of Business and Liberal Arts collaborated with Taktyl Studios, a gamification company that utilizes human-centered design principles to turn ideas, systems, and processes into fun and meaningful experiences, for a Co-Create project on Industrial Organization.
“The Co-Create Program of iACADEMY exists to facilitate collaboration between our school and the industries. Through this program, we train our students to identify real world problems that require innovative, creative, and timely solutions. This is one of the many ways we ensure our students are set for the challenges in the industry beyond the walls of our institution”, shares Vanessa Tanco, President and CEO of iACADEMY.
Specifically under the course subjects Industrial Organizational and Human Resource Management, the collaboration aims to construct and propose a Mental Health Program that addresses the emerging needs of the human resources towards a better workforce performance and work satisfaction.
A total of thirteen (13) students in the Psychology program are set to utilize psychological tests, interpret data, and propose a mental health program and an accompanying manual. Headed by Professor Suzanne Roxas, the third-year BA Psychology students are Luigi Agbulos, Ada Therese Arbis, Alexandra Joy Ayala, Andre Simon Bundoc, Mary Andrea Dayao, Aldreen Flores, Hans Furgen Go, Anton Miguel Perez, Jesse Con Dominique Reillo, and Frenz Hart Yu.
“I am happy to be a part of an organization that continually seeks to create a positive impact on the community. With our students on board and the openness of the industries for collaboration, I am certain that we will be able to address the pressing needs on mental health and create efficient solutions to combat the challenges of today”, states Paola Gonzales, Program Chair for Psychology, iACADEMY.
The Co-Create program of iACADEMY opens opportunities for collaboration with leading institutions and industry experts by connecting them to creative minds and innovative ideas. Through this program, students are paired with companies and institutions to design solutions to address the partners' needs and advocacies.
