OpusVi partners with well-being and productivity platform Thrive to address wellness in the workplaces of healthcare

3 min read


OpusVi, a leading healthcare workforce development company, and Thrive, the behavior change platform for workforce wellness founded by Arianna Huffington, today announce a partnership to help address the need for wellness education in the healthcare sector.

In our mission to transform the healthcare workforce, OpusVi cannot ignore that recent years have put the industry and its workers to the ultimate test. The healthcare industry has experienced a significant increase in burnout and stress in the workplace since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, with only 49% of physicians reporting overall work-life happiness in 2020, and 47% of nurses reporting that work conditions, pandemic uncertainty, and stress are negatively affecting their well-being. 

Leaders are finding it more difficult than ever to keep their teams motivated. To address this, our partnership with Thrive will use the platform’s expert experience, micro-learning approach, and results-driven mindset to bring our students the knowledge and skills they need to build mental resilience, de-stress in real time, and develop a growth mindset towards their work. In our Healthcare Leadership and Nurse Leadership certificate programs with Duke CE, students will learn how to ride the waves of excitement, uncertainty, and doubt that come with transitions in the workplace. To further support students, the partnership will leverage Thrive’s substantial library of employee well-being and behavior change prompts in the form of Resets and Microsteps. In our Mini-MBA in Healthcare and Mini-MBA in Rural Healthcare with The University of Arizona’s Eller Executive Education, course content will share the importance of talent acquisition and strategic human capital management to mitigate the costs of turnover.

“Well-being in the workplace is so important, particularly in healthcare. The reason we love the work Thrive does is that they see wellness from a unique point of view. Wellness is business-critical. It should be a core strategy to the improvement of productivity, the betterment of ROIs, and the happiness and satisfaction of staff and patients alike,” Andrew Malley, CEO of OpusVi, says of the partnership. “Here at OpusVi, we believe in applied, skills-based learning that resonates in the workplace. That makes Thrive the perfect partner.”


Arianna Huffington, Founder and CEO of Thrive, shared her thoughts on the current state of the healthcare industry.

“Prioritizing employee well-being and mental resilience is no longer a nice-to-have but an essential strategy for success. And that's especially true in healthcare. The last few years have tested our healthcare workers in unprecedented ways, and now we’re seeing the impact burnout and stress have had on the workforce.” On the partnership, Huffington noted, “Thrive’s mission is to end the stress and burnout epidemic. That means helping companies embed well-being into the workflow, and giving them too-small-to-fail Microsteps we can all take to improve our lives. We couldn’t be more excited to partner with an organization dedicated to empowering healthcare workers to be the best they can be.”
