Essi Systems Sells 2,000,000 StressMaps

SMBs, Fortune 500 and Global 2000 companies use StressMap to reduce employee stress and build healthy and resilient workforces

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. - April 21, 2009 - Essi Systems®, Inc., the expert in stress research and assessment services and solutions, reached a milestone of 2,000,000 StressMaps sold since the product's introduction. StressMap® is a self- administered assessment tool used by SMBs, Fortune 500 and Global 2000 companies to assess employee stress levels, evaluate their ability to cope with stress, and provide actionable steps to deal with stress.

"Essi Systems was founded in 1983 on the principle of transforming workplace stress into optimal performance," said CEO Esther M. Orioli. "I was promoting a revolutionary idea of positive stress performance and developed StressMap. Employers think about stress and how it needs to be addressed much differently today than they did 25 years ago. Companies now know that employee stress impacts their bottom line. They understand the importance of building a resilient workforce, keeping employees healthy, and leveraging stress energy for innovation and efficient resource management. These are essential for economic survival."

StressMap Online
Originally available in paper format, StressMap Online was introduced in 2006 for easy accessibility and convenience. StressMap Online targets areas for improvement and charts new strategies for enhancing employees' personal and professional life. Completed in as little as 15 minutes, it guides employees to cope more effectively with job-related stress, develops healthy behaviors, and increases job satisfaction and productivity. StressMap Online is extensively researched, norm tested and statistically reliable. It is confidential and secure - and a cost-effective way to reach every employee in an organization.

StressMap Online includes a comprehensive questionnaire, scoring grid and interpretation guide so employees can easily measure their pressures, changes and satisfactions; identify their stress strengths and vulnerabilities; and target areas for improvement. The online format archives results for easy retrieval and pre- and post-comparisons. StressMap Online automatically ranks performance and plots scores so progress can be measured over time.

StressMap Online can be used as a standalone assessment tool, integrated into an existing health or stress program, or plugged into a company's intranet at a fraction of the cost of traditional onsite training or health and wellness programs.

StressMap Online can be purchased directly on Essi Systems' website. For more information on Essi's products and services, contact Essi at or call (415) 252-8224.
