Mood Meter

The coronavirus pandemic and lockdown has had a marked effect on people’s mental health. The Lack of social life and continued work had some impact on construction workers. Being at work most of the times, the contractor identified the need for creating support from colleagues and managers.

They decided to introduce mood meter. Arriving onsite, workers are encouraged to take a mood tag and stick it on their chest. The mood meter tags are a green emoji for calm, yellow emoji for happy, red for stressed and blue emoji for tired.

By having this on their chest, colleagues can identify when is the right time to give support to their co-workers, talk to them and sit together at lunch breaks.

The tags also informed the management about how operatives are feeling during the day. If a person had the ‘tired’ tag, the manager knew that he needs to be paired with a ‘Happy’ colleague in order to transfer the energy between them. This also helped avoid incidents and mistakes, by grouping workers depending on their mood tag.
