Tell us the story behind the
company. What led you to start it?
Rahul & Sourabh: Sukhi was created to build
a bridge between mental wellness and cultural
understanding. With a desire to leverage technology
in a thoughtful manner, our team combines modern
analytics with proven practices to offer personalized
services that build strong communities.
With a global pandemic having been on the rise for
the past year now, many companies have begun
to change the way they look at the future of work.
There has been a significant increase in companies
making the transition to working from home.
Working from home has its perks, but it’s proven
to have taken a drastic toll on mental health due
to loneliness and longer work hours, ultimately
leading to a rise in burnout levels between both
employers and employees. With nearly 75% of
people experiencing burnout today, the World Health
Organization has officially recognized it as an
“occupational phenomenon” and has included it in
the 11th Revision of the International Classification
On top of this, we are seeing an increasingly divided
nation due to continued social struggles, leading to
more stress and anxiety at home. With all of this in
mind, we have become dedicated to helping build
happy, healthy, workplaces and reducing burnout.
