Why Your Organization Needs Mindfulness Based Stress Training
A decade ago, one in five employees were living with a mental disorder in a given year, and according to the latest studies around the world, the statistics are worsening. There is still a stigma associated with mental health conditions, and approximately half the time, individuals do not seek help or even know they have a problem.
Mindfulness training is an evidence based technique that has been proven effective in reducing stress, anxiety and depression, and can be offered in conjunction with other organizational wellbeing initiatives, to improve staff productivity, performance and wellbeing.
To tackle this issue, it’s important for HR professionals to offer a wide range of wellbeing initiatives, as one size does not fit all. Without Mindfulness education, wellbeing initiatives are incomplete.
The Mindfulness At Work course is a half day mindfulness based stress reduction training for workplaces delivered face to face or online.
The Workplace Mental Health Institute encourages the use of mindfulness as an effective protective factor for the mental health and wellbeing of workforces.
