Mindfulness at Work Benefits

Mindfulness at Work Benefits

According to the American Institute for Stress, the cost of stress in the American workplace is estimated at almost $300 billion annually due to absenteeism, lower productivity, turnover, and rising health care costs. But that is quickly changing as more companies are incorporating mediation and mindfulness into their organizations.

A white paper produced by UNC Kenan-Flager Business School highlighted studies by the National Institute of Health UK, the University of Massachusetts, and the Mind/Body Medical Institute at Harvard University that continue to validate the benefits that mindfulness in the workplace can provide, including:

Employee Benefits:
  • Increase focus and productivity
  • Boost creative problem solving in high demand situations
  • Reduce stress
  • Enhance communication
Company Benefits:
  • Reduce sick days
  • Increased employee retention
  • Reduce health care costs
