WeTransfer and Headspace partner to bring mindfulness and creativity to the workplace

Customers will receive a free year of Headspace when they purchase an annual WeTransfer Pro subscription

LOS ANGELES—OCTOBER 7, 2019— WeTransfer, the company that supports creativity with tools to move ideas, and Headspace, the global mindfulness brand, today announced a partnership to help people improve focus and boost creativity. In honor of World Mental Health Day (October 10), the two companies will offer WeTransfer users a free year of Headspace when they sign up for a WeTransfer Pro membership anytime over the next six months. The partnership will kick off a series of joint initiatives to be rolled out in the coming months. 

The 2018 Ideas Report, a comprehensive survey done by WeTransfer, found that three-quarters of users cited distractions at work and on social media as the main creative obstacles. By partnering with Headspace, whose meditation and mindfulness practices can improve focus by up to 14%, WeTransfer is providing users with yet another tool to reach their creative potential. 

“Working in a creative field requires unique mindfulness and presence. With so many distractions, creatives, like myself, are often challenged to find inspiration and maintain flow,” said Damian Bradfield, President and Chief Creative Officer of WeTransfer. “We recognize the value of mindfulness and are hopeful this partnership will give people the freedom to carve out time and energy for their most creative projects.”

“Increased mindfulness at work has a wide variety of benefits such as stress reduction, increased focus, and improved teamwork. Partnering with WeTransfer allows us to bring these benefits to a larger audience to bring real improvement to creative output,” said Rich Pierson, CEO of Headspace. “We are excited to continue working with WeTransfer to make a meaningful difference in the creative process of so many people.”

With a shared mission to improve community health and happiness, foster creativity, and remove distractions, the partnership builds on a joint initiative from June, in which WeTransfer and Headspace partnered with RIP Medical Debt to forgive $30M of medical debt in the LA community. 

A WeTransfer Pro subscription offers users a better way to track downloads and manage transfers for WeTransfer’s flagship product, with 1TB of storage, instant download, and customization features. New WeTransfer Pro customers will receive a year of Headspace, giving them access to hundreds of themed sessions, guided meditations, and exercises for reducing stress.
