Research is showing that the majority of employees are not engaged. This is a huge concern as engagement affects key business outcomes and drives growth. The pressures of a global competitive, uncertain, and volatile economy means that creating and sustaining a strong workplace culture that is healthy and effective, is increasingly challenging.
In a world where business has never been so fast and change so quick, being agile, effective and successful in the midst of everything that is going on around us is certainly a challenge for every leader. Mindfulness continues to grow and be marshalled by the promise of its benefits for leaders, employees and companies. Research like that of Erik Dane and Bradley J Brummel show how in a dynamic work environment, workplace mindfulness is positively related to job performance. There is a growing trend where organisations of all types and sizes across the globe are embracing mindfulness and incorporating it in different ways and programmes for their employees.
