Major companies such as Uber, Accenture, JP Morgan, Google, and Aetna are investing in mindfulness programs to help employees reduce stress, maintain focus in their work, and boost productivity. And it’s working. Researchers have found that daily mindfulness activities such as meditation can increase productivity by 47 to 62 minutes per week.
What’s more, mindfulness for employees is proving to be a smart investment, saving companies thousands of dollars each year. After introducing a mindfulness program, Aetna estimates the productivity gains alone amounted to $3,000 per employee, an 11-to-one return on its investment. According to David Gelles, author of Mindful Work, “Stress exerts a tax on an organization – in terms of both productivity and health care costs. Reducing stress, therefore, is going to help the bottom line.”
“People who are valued, create value,” says mindfulness expert and retreat co-facilitator Leah Weiss, who has supported major corporations in integrating mindfulness programs into daily work life and witnessed the benefits first hand.
