Managing Stress Through Mindfulness

Employee stress costs the business community an estimated $300 billion a year


Managing Stress Through Mindfulness is a Hollister Institute workshop that gives participants access to the neuroscience validating mindfulness and meditation as a tool to manage stress. Employee stress costs the business community an estimated $300 billion a year as a result of absenteeism, reduced productivity levels, and employee turnover. And while we may not be able to change the reality of ever increasing workplace stress, we can change the way we respond to it by incorporating mindfulness into our daily routines.

In fact, according to recent data, 36 percent of workers suffer from work-related stress which led the World Health Organization to refer to stress as the “health epidemic of the 21st century”.
