Mindfulness in the workplace

It’s in the best interests of both employers and employees to do all they can to minimise stress factors at work. The modern workplace, though, is a constantly-changing environment in which stress is inevitably going to be present from time to time.

While we can’t entirely remove stress from our working lives, we can learn how to deal with it in a skilful way, minimising its harmful effects on both individuals and organisations.

Well-being at work training comes in a choice of flexible formats, to fit into your work schedule. Choose from a bespoke range of sessions, workshops and courses at your workplace or book onto one of our scheduled one-day workshops.

Integrating mindfulness into organisational cultures

A growing body of research suggests that introducing simple mindfulness practices to the workplace can benefit employees and employers alike. Teaching mindfulness techniques to employees – and providing them with the time and space in which to practise these skills – has been shown to help them:

  • Manage stress and anxiety, increasing their resilience in the face of the inevitable ups and downs of working life
  • Improve their powers of concentration and memory
  • Develop greater empathy, for themselves and others, leading to better working relationships and team collaboration.

Read about some of the research behind these findings here.
