Richmond, VA (PRWEB) January 30, 2013
BlueOceanBrain.com continues to roll-out exceptional corporate training applications to mid-to-large size companies employing a high volume of knowledge-workers. While physical wellness continues to be a top priority for companies looking to control rising healthcare costs, investing in developing the minds and problem-solving capabilities of employees is garnering significant attention, especially when there is an increase in employee engagement.
“The fact is we live in a knowledge-economy. Companies pay people to think for a living. Those companies that can ignite employees will benefit from the discretionary effort employees put forth. Helping employees to become strategic thinkers will set great organizations apart,” says Claire Herring, co-creator of BlueOceanBrain.com.
Blue Ocean Brain has assembled a talented team of change management experts, clinicians, and wellness experts that generate daily critical thinking exercises and new brain-healthy content, all served in a gamified web-based application.
“We serve up bite-sized exercises that employees want to learn. Creating a self-directed micro-learning environment increases participation and changes daily habits,” says Gemma Brooks, co-creator. “Employees actually login on the weekends to learn new skills and work to stay at the top of the leaderboard. The competitive aspects of Blue Ocean Brain really excite our users and help drive employee engagement.”
Since their initial launch in the fall of 2012, BlueOceanBrain.com has gained corporate customers across the U.S. in both the business services industry and healthcare. The corporate training application can be customized according to the priorities of each organization. “We created everything in a Lego-style format. Gamification techniques are used to boost performance. Buyers can design special features according to their training and development needs. In fact, they have the opportunity to create their own unique features if needed,” says Herring.
Blue Ocean Brain is developed by The Rowing Team, LLC. Based in Richmond, Virginia, the development team is comprised of wellness experts, nutritionists, neuropsychologists, change management executives and business leaders.
