Businesses are increasingly aware of the need to find ways to counter the effects of stress related issues in the workplace. Mindfulness practices have played a key role in this with Mindfulness meditation being offered at some of the world’s biggest companies, such as Google, GlaxoSmithKline and KPMG, to cut workplace stress and boost productivity.
Workplace mindfulness is possible not only for individuals, but within and across teams of people. This means that mindfulness is a multi-level concept, associated with benefits for individual employees as well as for the organisation as a whole, and it can be trained through personal, relational and social practices in addition to meditation and contemplation.
When mindfulness becomes a shared social practice in an organisation, and permeates routines, and practices between people and across teams, then the organisation as a whole becomes more resilient and performs more sustainably.
Rosalind can run taster workshops and 6 week Mindfulness courses to introduce your staff to the benefits of a regular practice.
‘I have recently completed piece of academic research; ‘Investigating the relationship between mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) and the setting in which it is carried out’. I have had the pleasure of working with Rosalind, during my research period as a mindfulness teacher.
Rosalind’s expertise and enthusiasm for mindfulness has been very influential in conducting my research and ensuring that the project keeps running smoothly. The project with her co-operation had a great results and earned positive feedback by the participants for her support. With such participants mentioning inspiration from the sessions to continue to use mindfulness to overcome stress daily lives.
I would not hesitate to recommend Rosalind Hoyes for any future mindfulness sessions.’
