Mindfulness in the Work Place

Mindfulness is fast becoming popular in the work place. Companies like Google, the NHS and Transport for London have recently been providing their employees with mindfulness training. Mindfulness training can lead to fewer absences due to stress related illness and chronic pain. Also a more mindful work force can often mean a more creative and flexible work force.

In 2016 The Mindfulness Initiative launched their paper on Building the Case for Mindfulness in the Workplace. This document is primarily intended as a resource for those developing a business case for mindfulness training within their own organisation. It provides an updated summary of the research evidence, narrative rationales, case studies and a range of toolkits to help with programme planning for mindfulness in the workplace.

Currently This Mindful Life provides mindfulness training in a variety of work place settings in London, Hertfordshire and Cambridge. These range from stand alone taster sessions to eight week courses. All workplace sessions come with clear well-produced presentation materials and handouts for participants to take away. Recently This Mindful Life has provided in-house mindfulness training to organisations as diverse as Cambridge City Council UNISON, Bishops Stortford Children’s Centre and The Refugee Council at their London and regional offices.
