Mindfulness at Work

PeaceBox delivers on-site customized mindfulness education, training and practice for corporate clients interested in helping their employees learn healthy ways to reduce stress, increase mental clarity and improve overall performance and wellness. Practices benefit employees at work and in their daily lives in a plethora of ways. Companies benefit from increased productivity of more attentive, content and healthier employees.

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

PeaceBox: MINDFULNESS ON THE MOVE (TM) will partner with your organization to design and deliver a customized Mindfulness training program and schedule to meet the goals of your organization. Below are 3 packages we offer with a minimum 1-month on site. An initial consultation meeting will help us determine the best offerings for your organization. Following this meeting, PeaceBox will deliver a customized proposal to finalize terms for agreement.

Please see our packages and sample curriculum outlined below.

Upon agreement of terms, PeaceBox will schedule delivery of our mobile studio to the designated training site. On-site training begins and continues throughout the contracted time (minimum 4 weeks.) PeaceBox will measure progress and impact of the training through a pre and post assessment delivered to participants online. Organization can use this data to assess the effectiveness of the training and to inform future trainings. After the contracted period comes to an end, PeaceBox can also continue to provide remote, ongoing mindfulness training options and resources for employees.

WHY a 4-week minimum? Research shows significant measurable results over 4-5 weeks of regular practice. While many people experience immediate benefits of mindfulness practices, PeaceBox is committed to helping employees achieve and experience ongoing and lifelong benefits that come from an ongoing effective practice.
