Mindfulness for workplace


Organizations are increasingly concerned with the resilience and wellbeing of employees. In part because of growing awareness of the costs of absenteeism and staff turnover associated with stress and mental health problems. Mindfulness is a research-backed method favoured by Google, Proctor & Gamble, Apple, LinkedIn, Yahoo, Twitter, Nike and many more organizations. It is a solution to support employee wellbeing and to improve work performance.  

Our practices have been proven to improve overall staff wellbeing, reduce chronic illness, increase focus, enhance creativity, develop emotional intelligence and heighten job satisfaction.

There is extensive evidence that mindfulness training is effective in reducing stress, anxiety and depression. The research demonstrates that mindfulness can help to:

  • Improve employee’s health & well-being

  • Enhance creativity and clarity, leading to improving problem-solving

  • Improve emotional intelligence, resulting in improving communication

  • Improve employee performance

Steve Jobs ;  Co-founder , Apple Inc.  “If you just sit and observe, you will see how restless your mind is. If you try to calm it, it only makes it worse, but over time it does calm, and when it does, there’s room to hear more subtle things- that’s when your intuition starts to blossom and you start to see things more clearly and be in the present more. Your mind just slows down, and you see a tremendous expanse in the moment. You see so much more than you could see before.”
