Organisations are building mindfulness into their armoury of wellbeing practices – find out how in our latest webinar.
Over the past 10 years, the meditation practice known as mindfulness has become one of the most popular ways for people to improve and maintain their wellbeing. Its success is based on an extensive evidence base showing its value in treating a range of physical and psychological health conditions. Importantly, it also builds resilience and wellbeing, helping those that are well to remain so. Now you can find out more by downloading our mindfulness webinar.
More recently it has become a common feature in workplace wellbeing programmes, with large numbers of organisations across the UK offering it to their employees. Whether to enhance their wellbeing strategy, build employee health and resilience or address the mental health at work agenda, more businesses are introducing mindfulness at work each year. At the Bank Workers Charity (BWC), we welcome this development. If, as the research tells us, mindfulness improves the health and wellbeing of employees, then the business benefits too.
BWC’s new whitepaper looks at the growth of mindfulness in organisational settings. It looks at the different ways businesses have introduced it, and identifies the business rationale for doing so. It also includes a case study from a UK bank that shows that it is possible to bring mindfulness into the business in an innovative and cost-effective way.
We have also produced a mindfulness webinar that explores these and other issues relating to the growth of mindfulness and its increased presence in the workplace. The webinar also includes a short meditation exercise by our mindfulness practitioner Mari Lewis.
