Course Content

Why is it many companies have in recent years invested so much time in encouraging staff to meditate? Companies such as Google, Yazoo, Proctor & Gamble, Barclays, Nike, AOL, HBO and many more regularly allow employees during the working day to meditate.

  • Decreased stress, anxiety and depression
  • Enhanced employer/employee relationships
  • Increased job satisfaction
  • Increased problem solving and decision making
  • Increased concentration, memory and learning ability levels
  • Increased creativity and innovation
  • Improved customer service
  • Quicker resolution of conflicts (Sources: Harvard University USA, NHS, National Institute of Health UK)
