Frog Systems is delighted to announce that it has been included on the latest Crown Commercial Service G Cloud framework.
G-Cloud 12 helps customers in the UK public sector find and buy cloud computing services such as hosting, software and cloud support, including many off-the-shelf, pay-as-you-go cloud solutions.
This agreement which runs for 12 months from 28 September 2020, enables the UK public sector to procure and license Frog’s mental health and wellbeing video platform software, on a call off basis.
Frog’s software is designed for any organisation with a duty of care to customise and deliver an innovative cloud based video platform that utilises the power of the lived experience to communicate positive messages of hope and support, from those that have survived dark times, to others who are facing their own personal challenges.
By harnessing the power, authenticity and relatability of lived experiences and immediately presenting routes for people to take steps to start addressing their issues, Frog aims to ignite hope and trigger early remedial action. Earlier self-understanding/recognition and addressing of issues is not only extremely valuable for individuals but importantly is known to result in reduced related costs to employers and to public health services.
People perform better – at university, at work, on a sports field – when they have a purpose, are confident, motivated, and completely focused on being the best they can be. Good mental health underpins this. The benefits of Frog are twofold. The end user receives the encouragement and inspiration to seek support, whilst the organisation accesses Frog’s real time anonymised data sets, gaining early insight into the potential levels, and types of, health-related issues that may exist within it. Use of Frog’s data enables organisations to deploy early intervention and support strategies, and measure their effectiveness, helping to create more resilient, empathetic and productive work environments through the significant reduction of absenteeism and presenteeism.
Frog complements other employee type wellbeing services by bridging the gap between a person struggling and taking that first step in seeking support. Through its innovative use of video, Frog makes it easier to find hope as we believe a sense of hope is a necessity to living and working well.
Mental ill-health costs UK employers almost £35bn a year through lost productivity, sickness absence and staff turnover, according to the Centre for Mental Health, a research and policy charity. This means that mental health problems cost £1,300 for every employee in the UK economy.
According to the Mental health and employers – Refreshing the case for investment report issued by Deloitte in 2020, one in six UK workers will experience a mental health problem at any one time, with stress is now thought to be responsible for almost half of working days lost in the UK due to health issues.
The G Cloud framework will run for 12 months from 28 September 2020 and provides access to over 36,200 services and over 4,750 suppliers.
