Wellbeing at Work – Are you ready to develop a happier workforce?
There is lot of well-published evidence that work-place stress management is having a positive impact on staff wellness and productivity. Major organisations, like Google, are promoting mindfulness training for their employees, from the executive suite to the shop floor, trading desk, and customer service departments.
In the UK, TfL (Transport for London) introduced a 6-week Mindfulness course at work in 2015 and absenteeism from stress-related illness dropped by over 70%. Besides the added benefit of employees feeling respected by courses addressing their personal needs, staff retention has been shown to improve when companies provide such training.
We’ve launched a two-session workshop for stress management in the work place. By introducing simple easy-to-practice breathing and meditation tools, the staff have reported back gains in personal health, emotional resilience and positive behaviours at work.
