Mindfulness Training in the Workplace

Does your team have resilience, balance, and the tools needed to practice healthy stress management so they can become more productive, work in better cohesion with a team, and have a greater sense of overall well-being? 

Like many business owners, the answer to this question is likely “no”.  Research has shown that bringing mindfulness to the workplace can impact employee behavior in a business setting.  Studies consistently site the many benefits of mindfulness, including:

 

  1. Better decision making, problem solving, listening skills, more creativity and less reactivity.

  2. Calmer, less stressed employees and leaders with better attention spans and improved production.

  3. Improvement in relationships among employees, leadership and clients or customers.  Employees are generally more willing to collaborate and be engaged.

  4. Improved job satisfaction, less turnover and overall less burnout which typically equals happier employees.

  5. A more positive company culture can be experianced when mindfulness is practiced throughout all areas of the workplace.

Supporting Research

In an increasingly knowledge-based economy, economic value relies on skills and motivation of individuals – “human capital.” A large part of the workforce, however, seems to be suffering from strain.

Mindfulness programs help leaders and employees reflect effectively, focus sharply on the task at hand, master peak levels of stress, and recharge quickly. However, most companies have not yet created an environment that truly prepares them to reap the rewards of agility.

In support of evidence-based decision-making in workplace contexts, we created an evidence map summarizing physical and mental health, cognitive, affective, and interpersonal outcomes from systematic reviews of randomized controlled trials (RCTs) of mindfulness interventions.

Can mindfulness practice really help employees’ mental health? Is it something that more businesses should be investing in, or just another fad for ex-hippies in Silicon Valley? The results of the best-designed study to date that addresses this question explain how mindfulness really can help workers.
