Meditation in the workplace
Many Fortune 500 and innovative companies such as HBO, Nike, Forbes, Apple, Google, and Aetna are embracing corporate wellness programs such as Meditation. Approximately one-fourth of all major American employers offer extensive programs to foster mindful practices among their workers, according to journalist David Gelles, whose new book, Mindful Work, explores the spread of meditation inside the business world -- a trend now reaching beyond Silicon Valley. Helping employees manage stress, stay physically healthy, improve concentration and improve work/life balance should be included in every company’s strategic plan.
