According to Veterans, the number one concern when transitioning is finding a job and landing the right job can be more challenging than it appears. GRIT Employment module personalizes job searching using Watson Artificial Intelligence (AI) and our aggregator of 51k job sites to provide more than 198k new job opportunities daily for all businesses with a NAICS code.
Everyone understands the need to stay physically active, and mental health is just as important as physical health. The Mind Gym intends to help our users get and stay mentally fit. The Mind Gym provides self-awareness and self-care without the stigma. Uses clinically validated tools to evaluate a user's state of mind and ability to cope with the challenges they face every day.
Measurable improvements keep us on track. GRIT uses technology to aggregate personalized data to create a digital representation of the individual, a “digital self.” GRIT gets to know each person individually based on information provided safely and securely through the app and offers insights and support to encourage individuals to be the best version of themselves.
Social engagement and a sense of community are critical components of emotional well-being. GRIT allows each user to assemble a squad, a network of close friends, family members, and allies that can provide support, motivation, and social connectedness.
The right resource when you need it. GRIT uses Artificial Intelligence (AI) to provide a Digital Assistant that can respond directly to your questions and requests by providing support resources anytime.
Are you looking for employment resources? Need help managing your work-life balance? Are you trying to locate health facilities or Veteran Service Organizations in your area? The digital assistant has been trained in many areas, including employment and mental fitness, and can help you prepare for an interview to find new ways to increase your work-life balance. Just ask the digital assistant any time.
Our current mood can change our perspective and outlook on a situation. Understanding our response to a problem or our interaction with others while keeping negative emotions in check can produce positive outcomes.
The goal of the field test is to evaluate the participants' use of the app by analyzing data collected using the following mechanisms:
The field test is open to transitioning Service members, Veterans, members of the National Guard, Reserves, and their families. The field test will begin with 25,000 participants and can expand to meet demand. If you are not one of the first 25,000 participants, you will be placed on a waitlist and receive an invitation as more slots open.
In support of a successful field test, we ask that you do the following:
Your feedback is essential and will be used to add enhancements to GRIT throughout the entire period of the field test. Participants will receive communication of app enhancements and announcements using notification techniques from within and outside the app. We will also use navigational cards to introduce new features and get feedback. In addition, we will conduct town halls to preview improvements and to answer any questions that you may have. Finally, you may always contact our helpdesk at email@example.com.
We hope you have been able to download the GRIT app and start to explore all of its features and functionality. As we are still in the field test, we would love to hear your feedback and suggestions for improvement. We have engineered several ways to provide us with your thoughts and firsthand experiences to do so. These feedback channels gather as much feedback from our users as possible to help us continue to improve and better serve the Veteran population.
