Mindfulness is all the corporate rage!
As often as I brush my teeth (2-3 times daily), an article posts on my google alerts referencing “Mindfulness at Work” and “Mindful Leadership.”
Google reports “In the past decade, the rate of increase in Google searches for mindfulness has outpaced that of all Google searches by a factor of four.” see entire article: http://knowledge.wharton.upenn.edu/article/how-companies-can-instill-mindfulness/
WHY all the rage???
The results are measurable…and the CORPORATE WORLD is seeking to learn more!
“Aetna, a U.S. health insurer, has trained 13,000 employees on mindfulness practices, resulting in a reported reduction in stress levels of 28%. Annual productivity improvements, a secondary effect, are estimated at $3,000 per employee. Aetna launched the mindfulness initiatives gradually, starting with brief meditations in executive-team meetings and then continuing with yoga and meditation classes for all employees. “We have demonstrated that mindfulness-based programs can reduce stress and improve people’s health,” says Mark Bertolini, Aetna’s chairman and CEO.”
