About

Overview

Underperforming human capital is limiting organizational success.

Stress, burnout and disengagement means employees are performing below baseline. This causes attrition, turnover and suboptimal productivity—all of which result in wasted resources.

At the Flow Research Collective we use a neuroscience-backed approach to guide your people back to a state of sustained peak-performance.

This restores baseline performance and primes your people to go beyond baseline. Wastage is minimized. Value is maximized.

the price you pay

The Cost of Workplace Stress:

$300 Billion

The cost of work related stress to employers in the US alone.

$550 Million

In working days lost from stress-related absenteeism.

80% of Employees

Feel stressed at work.

94% of Executives

Agree that tackling employee performance is critical to success.

“Employee stress and burnout have reached “epidemic” levels over the past decade.”
PROBLEM 01: BURNOUT

The majority of employees are burnt out:

Burned out employees have lower productivity. They are 63% more likely to take sick days, and 2.6x more likely to be actively seeking a different job.

23%

23% of employees report feeling burned out at work either very often or always.

44%

44% of employees reported feeling burned out sometimes.

PROBLEM 02: Disengagement

Most employees are not engaged in their jobs:

Disengaged employees cost your organization. An actively disengaged employee costs their organization $3,400 for every $10,000 of that is spent on their salary. Organizations with low engagement have 59% higher turnover.

51%

51% of employees are disengaged at their jobs.

16%

16% are actively disengaged, meaning they’re taking proactive measures to sabotage the success of their organization.

What is flow?

Flow States

To restore your teams output to baseline and beyond we aim to achieve sustained peak-performance. We do this by training the ability to consistently access flow state.

What is “flow”?
Often referred to as “being in the zone” or “being in state”, flow refers to a state of hyper-focus and complete concentration. Almost everyone has experienced flow at some point in their career.

When in a flow state:
Action and awareness merge. Time dilates—slowing down or speeding up. You become totally immersed, at one, with whatever you’re doing. Throughout a flow state, performance drastically increases.

Our mission

Why is Flow our focus?

Over half a decade of research has found flow to be highly correlated with measures of performance. From creativity, decision-making and information processing to skill acquisition, collaboration and motivation.

500% Increase in executives’ productivity.

3 days of heightened creativity after the flow state

+490% faster skill acquisition

+430% increase in creative problem solving
