About the Course
In today's fast-paced and high-stress work environments, the well-being and productivity of employees can be significantly impacted. Research shows that workplace stress contributes to worker turnover, ‘quiet quitting’, and talent gaps. A study conducted by Gallup found that organizations with higher stress levels experience 50% higher turnover rates and 33% higher absenteeism. However, studies also indicate that increased use of self-regulation strategies, such as mindfulness, can lead to improved worker retention.
"Be Here NOW! Mindfulness at Work," is designed to provide participants with the research-backed tools and techniques needed to navigate workplace challenges and boost well-being. Mindfulness is not simply wishful or positive thinking; it is a practice with roots in contemplative traditions such as meditation. Supported by a growing body of scientific research, mindfulness has demonstrated its efficacy in promoting mental well-being, reducing stress, and enhancing cognitive resilience.
Through experiential learning and application, participants will learn to cultivate mindfulness, enhance self-regulation, and create a more present and fulfilling work environment. Grounded in scientific evidence, the course empowers individuals to reduce turnover rates, increase job satisfaction, and optimize performance.
