Corporate Well-Being/Workplace Mindfulness

Corporate Well-Being/Workplace Mindfulness

An increasing number of organizations—including many household names like Google, Apple, General Mills, and Aetna—have incorporated mindfulness into their organization to enhance employee well-being and performance.

The conditions of the modern workplace—such as high levels of distraction and long hours—make mindfulness particularly appealing. Today’s workplaces are often challenging and competitive environments that can lead to high levels of stress, burnout and lost productivity.

More than 10,000 employees who participated in a Duke University study through Aetna’s Mindfulness and Wellness Initiative reported a

  • 28% reduction in self-reported stress levels
  • 20% improvement in sleep quality
  • 19% reduction in pain.

Participants also averaged an additional 62 minutes per week in added productivity.

In a Government of Canada survey completed by 44 Association of Professional Executives after attending an Ottawa Meditation & Wellness mindfulness workshop, 95.1% of respondents said ``they would recommend the workshop to a colleague or peer``.

How mindfulness can benefit your organization

Mindfulness training can benefit every workplace, from government departments and agencies to small businesses and large corporations. In particular, mindfulness can help employees, managers and leaders:

  • increase attention, focus and working memory
  • increase self-awareness—a key leadership skill
  • reduce stress and increase employee well-being
  • improve employee engagement
  • improve communication
  • improve employees’ ability to respond (versus react) under stressful conditions
  • strengthen organizational culture

increase productivity
