Workplace mindfulness training has been shown to improve performance and well-being

Every manager and organization is concerned with employee engagement and well-being.  The problem is that few organizational programs or performance coaching practices have been successful building these emotional and motivational states.  However, recent research published in the Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine has shown that online mindfulness training may be a cost effective way to improve both performance and well-being.

The study found that daily stress was decreased significantly while resiliency, awareness, emotional energy, and cognitive strength all increased.  The mindfulness training research has important implications for human performance both at the organizational level and in individual coaching.  The method of mindfulness training used in the study was a combination of group organizational training and individual coaching.  The researchers admit that it is hard to place a return on investment for such a mindfulness training intervention, but argued the “widespread application has the potential to result in significant employer competitive advantage through a combination of improved employee well-being, enhanced human performance, and decreased health care costs.”
