This mixed methods study examined the impact of an online mindfulness-training program on mindfulness and the attention levels of eight employees working in an organization. All participants showed increased levels of mindfulness at the end of the intervention. The attention levels for participants increased for two of the three attention scales used to measure attention levels. The two attention scales that showed increases were mind wandering and attention, whereas distraction showed no significant increase comparing baseline to post-levels. The qualitative information gathered emphasized learning and greater levels of awareness around mental states and emotional states. This study showed preliminary support for the value of online mindfulness programs in organizations and future research should continue to examine how mindfulness can support employees.
