Mindfulness in the Workplace

Self-Paced Online Training


Workplaces today face increasing demands and challenges. High stress levels may result in low workplace morale and decreased employee effectiveness, creativity, and efficiency. If unchecked, rising stress may cause increased employee absenteeism or burnout.

Mindfulness has shown great value in enhancing stress management and promoting employee self-care, which is why businesses have started to integrate the practice into the workplace. Additional benefits include aiding clear and constructive communication and strengthening workplace relationships. 

Mindfulness is a relational practice: It's a way to re-frame our relationship to stress, burnout, anxiety, interpersonal conflict and other challenges at work. This self-paced training module will provide practical applications to implement mindfulness into your daily work routine. The training can be completed in approximately 30 minutes
