Mindfulness for business

Mindfulness training for business is an investment in reducing the costs of health care and absenteeism associated with stress-related conditions, as well as improving employee retention, satisfaction, and overall engagement.

According to the Health and Safety Executive’s report on work related stress published in 2015:

  • work related stress, depression and anxiety represents a significant problem in the workforce of Great Britain
  • it is the biggest cause of sickness in the UK
  • over 10 million days are lost to stress each year – costing employers £1.24bn
  • work related stress accounts for 35% of work related ill health and  43% of days lost, in 2014/15
  • the highest rates of work related stress remain consistently in the health and public sectors of the economy

A mindfulness-driven culture can:

  • help mitigate against work-related stress
  • support growing demands for a flexible and adaptive workforce
  • help raise the ethical level of organisations (competitive advantage)
