Mindfulness is now offered within a number of UK Workplaces and Organisations as the benefits of introducing Mindfulness practices and skills to staff has been recognised by a wide range of employers. There is significant research which highlights the value to both employer and employee.
The ‘Mindful Nation UK’ Report (October 2015) by the Mindfulness All-Party Parliamentary Group highlights “the rising toll of work-related mental ill health”. Our experiences within the Workplace have shown us that within this broad understanding lies significant and increasing levels of staff absenteeism and burn-out.
We have already offered evidenced pilot projects, most notably within a South West County Council. The results were very positive with 73% of the cohort measuring in the highest band of mental wellbeing at the conclusion of the programme as opposed to only 9% at commencement.
Specific feedback from our client groups has highlighted some of the benefits of Mindfulness provision within the Workplace to include:
- Stress and anxiety reduction which results, in particular, in less absenteeism.
- A happier workplace leading to greater employee retention.
- Greater resilience and ability to perform effectively under pressure and in deadline situations.
- Clearer thinking and communication.
- Improved prioritisation skills.
- Increased stability and resourcefulness during periods of change and upheaval.
- Promoting employee confidence leading to an enhanced willingness to take on new responsibilities.
