For Business

Mindfulness has been shown to have a direct positive impact on business performance. Mindfulness can help increase productivity, reduce absenteeism and improve retention. By improving employee focus, ability to work under pressure and by enhancing clarity of decision making, employee well-being is improved and your business performance boosted.
