We often feel bored at work due to the monotony of routine or at times we may just lack the inspiration to pull ourselves up and make our life interesting.
Such issues make us unproductive and can even adversely affect our emotional state. It may sound like a trivial problem, but it’s not. If emotional state is not taken care of, it can really hamper an employee’s productivity as well.

“We all want to be more productive in life, but the most important secret of productivity is our emotional state. Start page app is the way to share my warmth with all those people who open its start page every day,”.

We noticed that in large organizations main focus tends to be productivity while the emotional state of employees is overlooked. That convinced us to come out with a new tab tool like productivity start page.
