What Companies Are Saying About Incorporating Zen Meditation and Mindfulness Into Their Workplace

It seems like all the innovative CEOs are joining the mindful movement. Whether these companies introduced corporate meditation as a productivity hack or as a genuine way to enhance lives, here’s what these meditating corporations have to say.

Insurance Giant, Aetna

  • A highly stressed employee costs the company an extra $2,000 per year in healthcare, when compared to their less-stressed peers
  • Health care costs at Aetna – which total more than $90 million a year – are going down now that they offer mindfulness programs
  • In 2012, as corporate meditation and mindfulness programs ramped up, health care costs fell a total of 7 percent. (That equals $6.3 million going straight to the bottom line, partly attributed to mindfulness training)
  • Aetna calculated that productivity gains alone were about $3,000 per employee, equaling an eleven-to-one return on investment

Tech Giant, Google

Many of the participants were hard-core scientists, initially reporting skepticism towards the benefits of the course. However, after the course the participants reported improved creativity, well-being and focus, decreased levels of stress and stronger enthusiasm in projects and meetings. The meditation courses, can help improve not only employee mental health and wellbeing, but the company’s bottom line as well.

Entrepreneur, Steve Jobs

Steve Jobs took a practice that worked for him and shared it with Apple’s corporate culture. He was considered a pioneer of “mind technology” when he introduced Zen mindfulness meditation to the corporate structure at Apple. Workers have access to a meditation room, 30-minute daily meditation breaks, and on-site yoga and meditation classes, which were all part of a process that Steve used to reduce his own stress, gain more clarity, and enhance his creativity.

Stress & Performance in The Workplace

Corporate Meditation & Mindfulness help us to develop an everyday experience of being engaged and present with whatever we’re doing from moment to moment. When we’re under the pump at work, stressed, when we’re facing exams, for most people, these would be times that we would tend to wander off into worrying, or dwelling, or get caught up in judgments and reactions. In moments like this, our practice of corporate meditation and mindfulness becomes a very useful tool to have.

Below is ‘The stress performance curve’. A  certain amount of stress is actually good for performance, which in turn lifts us out of apathy. At zero stress, often we’re quite sort of apathetic and not doing a whole lot. And a little bit of stress can motivate us to actually start working and it could be quite good for us. But there comes a point at the top of that curve, that’s our peak performance, when we’re motivated by stress. And then, of course, any more stress tips itself down the other side of the curve, and our performance will start to decrease.

 

How Does Corporate Meditation Help With Managing Stress & Optimising Performance?

In today’s climate stress can take a toll on even those who normally are able to let things roll off their back. The key to dealing with a stressful situation is to develop a cellular memory of how to fall back into stillness and calm when dealing with situations that would otherwise cause you stress or burnout. No matter what size of wave one encounters you can recover quickly and proceed with more clarity and focus. Through a corporate meditation practice, you will develop the ability to very quickly and easily shift out of a reactive mode into a calm and comfortable ease.

Research has shown that a meditation and mindfulness practice can affect the amount of activity in the amygdala, the walnut-sized area in the centre of the brain responsible for regulating emotions. When the amygdala is relaxed, the parasympathetic nervous system engages to counteract the anxiety response. The heart rate lowers, breathing deepens and slows, and the body stops releasing cortisol and adrenaline into the bloodstream; these stress hormones provide us with quick energy in times of danger but have damaging effects on the body in the long term if they’re too prevalent. Mindfulness meditation actually thickens the bilateral, prefrontal right-insular region of the brain, the area responsible for optimism and a sense of well-being, spaciousness, and possibility. This area is also associated with creativity and an increased sense of curiosity, as well as the ability to be reflective and observe how your mind works.

Corporate Meditation & Mindfulness training has been used as a tool in psychotherapy, and The ZEN Room has been successfully introducing it to the field of business. Meditation practice has a positive impact on concentration, memory, creativity, emotional intelligence, and motivation. There is increasing evidence from the field of neuroscience suggesting that meditation practice can enhance employees’ job performance via its influence on the autonomic nervous and endocrine systems. Confirming that a meditation practice is an effective intervention strategy to improve job performance in the business world.

Obviously, learning to communicate mindfully means we communicate more effectively, we’re better listeners, we’re better communicators in general, so that has implications for leadership as well.
