Did you know? Google invests in mindfulness training too

Many of the large tech companies have adopted regular Mindfulness workshops as part of their health and wellbeing policies over the years, continually showing a high uptake of this type of training amongst staff, as well as a variety of short- and long-term benefits to their employees [1]. One of the most successful case studies of Mindfulness at work can be seen at Google HQ.

Since 2007, Google has implemented an internal mindfulness training course entitled “Search Inside Yourself” created by ex-Google engineer Chade-Meng Tan. This program adopts mindfulness techniques, leadership skills and emotional intelligence to create a non-judgemental, thriving environment for individuals to work within. [2]

Since Google has adopted mindfulness as a mainstay of their wellbeing policy, psychometric tests have revealed staff empathy, self-rumination, self-perceived stress and self-criticism have all significantly improved, and the satisfaction rate for this program sits at 4.7 out of 5 amongst the company. [3] 

If we look towards tech giants such as Google, it becomes evident that mindfulness can not only have a direct impact on team effectiveness and workplace culture, but is genuinely valued by the staff undergoing the training.

Bring the benefits of mindfulness to your workplace with our comprehensive 6-part Mindfulness at Work series, or our Introduction to Mindfulness session.

“Katherine presented to our team of 40 staff at our annual staff symposium and it was absolutely fantastic. Katherine was engaging and really helped all staff members relate better to each other. We were so impressed we wanted her back for a conference of 150 medical practice managers which also went really well. Very happy with the resources provided by Associated Employee Assistance Providers who helped arranged both the above plus follow up articles. Highly recommended.”
