Meditation in the Workplace
The program introduces meditation to your organization’s employees, members, or community.
Work environments today are brimming with stress, conflict, and uncertainty. Employees are feeling insecure about their jobs at times, or are expected to produce more with less while constantly being bombarded with a fury of information. As the workplace becomes more demanding, methods for stress management and lifestyle improvement are increasingly popular.
Corporations of all sizes, industries, and locations are spending millions to implement wellness programs in the workplace. According to Fidelity Investments® and the National Business Group on Health, US corporate spending on wellness programs has more than doubled in the past five years, now averaging nearly $600 per employee. The most popular employee wellness programs include exercise and nutrition, lifestyle programs, and stress management. According to a study by the US Department of Labor, about half of all corporations with more than 50 employees now have wellness programs.
True well-being, the seed of wellness, is rooted in a person’s ability to self-manage the quality and quantity of thoughts that race through the mind each day, enabling a return to a stable state of being. The more we can do this, the greater our inner capacity to meet life’s daily challenges.
