Helping employees grow and thrive one company at a time.

Making life
at work better

In the years since, our mission has evolved beyond connecting people with coaches (although it’s still the core of what we do). The average person spends more than 3,000 hours at work each year, and our experiences on the job have a huge impact on every single part of our lives. And the truth is that for many people, “work” can be synonymous with anxiety and dread.

We believe that there’s another way, and it’s why we’re on a mission to make life at work better for everyone.

“We founded Bravely with the mission of providing people unprecedented access to professional coaching so that everyone, at every level within an organization, could benefit from the power of this incredible resource. Our coaches provide support to employees with their incredible experience, wisdom and care. Coaches support employees in skill-building, mapping professional goals, and creating a safe space where employees can share openly and confidentially. Bravely’s mission is now a reality that is realized every day through our platform where our coaches provide support, help to drive action, and build skills for thousands of people, every day. At Bravely, we’re setting a new standard for the future world of work; a world where coaching is provided to employees at every level and delivers the individualized support that each and everyone one of us deserves.”
