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. Meditation practice in the workplace also helps with employee retention and improved work/life balance. For more information about how companies can benefit from increased productivity of more attentive, content and healthier employees visit our blog post here.

Here are the primary ways we partner with corporations:

  1. We bring our mobile PeaceBox to your organization for any length of time for guided practice and small group training sessions.
  2. We offer a comprehensive Mindfulness@Work curriculum training groups of any size at a site designated by your company.
  3. We provide educational “Lunch & Learn” presentations for your employees
  4. Your company may sponsor “PeaceBox: Mindfulness on the Move” training for a school or non-profit to satisfy CSR initiatives and give back to your community.
  5. As part of our sustainability program, for companies that participate in our comprehensive Mindfulness@Work Training and Program Office Implementation, we offer a unique opportunity to rent or purchase a PeaceBox meditation studio equipped with headphones for guided practice.

Job stress is costly. Job stress carries a price tag for industry in the U.S. estimated at over $300 billion annually as a result of:

  • Accidents
  • Absenteeism
  • Employee turnover
  • Diminished productivity
  • Direct medical, legal, and insurance costs
  • Workers’ compensation awards

According to the American Institute of Stress, occupational pressures are believed responsible for:

  • 30% of workers suffering from back pain;
  • 28% complaining of “stress”
  • 20% feeling fatigued
  • 13% with headaches

Programs & Pricing

PeaceBox: “Mindfulness On The Move” offers flexible workplace training options to accommodate any budget.   As our tagline implies, we come to you (with or without our mobile PeaceBox) and support employees with stress-management tools they can take with them for life, whether at work or at home, or anywhere “on the move.”  Once employees learn a few essentials and experience the benefits of mindfulness practice, they have access to an enhanced way of being they can take with them for life.

The first step for all of these offerings is a consultation. Please fill out our form here or contact us at 512-484- 0811 to discuss your interest, questions, and desired outcomes for your company and employees.
