Meditation to increase employee wellness, productivity and your bottom line.
The World Health Organization found that stress and its associated medical conditions cost American businesses around $ 300 billion a year. Besides medical costs stress might cost your company in terms of lack of creativity, reduced performance and productivity within your employees.
While our minds tend to wander about half of our waking hours, mindfulness training helps us to bring our focus back to the task at hand. Mindfulness has been shown to improve stability, control and efficiency. It has a positive impact on a variety of areas. It improves attention, cognition, emotions, behaviour and physiology.
Individuals who practice mindfulness show greater empathy, emotional resilience and compassion which leads to better interpersonal behaviour and workgroup relationships.
Companies like Google, Nike and Apple, along with a number of Fortune 500 companies and even the United States Marine Corps have all implemented mindfulness training for their employees in order to increase employee wellness and production.
Business owners reported that among employees who meditate absenteeism is lower, production is higher and the quality of their work is better.
