Corporate Mindfulness

We provide everything needed to start and maintain meditation in the workplace, while building a foundation that is tailored to your teams individualized job stressors and concerns.

"After participating in mindfulness programs, Aetna employees experienced a “28 percent reduction in their stress levels, a 20 percent improvement in sleep quality and a 19 percent reduction in pain. They also become more effective on the job, gaining an average of 62 minutes per week of productivity each, which Aetna estimates is worth $3,000 per employee per year.”   ~ Nytimes.com

Large corporations including Aetna, Target, General Mills, Google, Ford, Adobe, and Goldman Sachs have implemented corporate mindfulness programs with great success.

Aside from improving the health and well-being of individual employees and the corporate environment in general, mindfulness training is having an impact on the bottom line.

Aetna, for example, estimates that since instituting its mindfulness program, it has saved about $2,000 per employee in healthcare costs, and gained about $3,000 per employee in productivity.

Mindful employees are healthier and more focused.  In The Atlantic, had this to say

In-depth research by the University of Massachussets highlighted the following statistics of job-related stress:

  • 40% of job turnover is due to stress.
  • Healthcare expenditures are nearly 50% greater for employees who report high levels of stress.
  • Job stress causes more health complaints than financial or family problems.
  • Replacing an average employee costs 120-200% of the salary of the position affected.
  • The average cost of absenteeism in a large company is more than $3.6 million/year.
  • Depression is the largest single predictor of absenteeism and work related performance.
  • Depressive illness, a common side effect of job stress, in employees is associated with nearly 10 annual sick days (this study included one large firm).
  • For every 47 cents spent on treating depression, another 53 cents is indirectly spent on absenteeism, presenteeism, and disability.
  • Insurance data indicates insurance claims for stress related industrial accidents cost nearly twice as much as non stress related industrial accidents.
