Abstract (Summary)

As organizations search to identify how they can achieve higher output without increasing costs, mindfulness practices are increasingly being adopted for the productivity-related benefits they reportedly provide. This study looks at Mindfulness’ impact on employee productivity and examines if this impact looks different in tactical and strategic types of roles. 27 of 30 participants completed a Mindfulness workshop. Changes in Mindfulness levels and in productivity-related factors were assessed both before and after the intervention using surveys, questionnaires, and interviews. Descriptive statistics and themes were used to analyze the data. Seeing Mindfulness as more holistic, participants described a personal impact that quickly transitioned into the workplace. This research found shifts in how participants approach their work, in their level of awareness, in their mindsets, and in being present more. Tactical and strategic types of roles displayed both similarities and differences in results. Limitations and future research directions are discussed.
