Stress Management through Meditation as new Trend for Businesses
In today’s high paced business environment, the pressure that effects employees can result in a number of costly consequences for businesses. However, through a variety of meditation and relaxation techniques, businesses are now enjoying substantial improvements in staff well-being that ultimately improves their bottom line performance. Liz, from Kumara Meditation & Healing Centre in Perth, says, "We are offering a practical and holistic approach to improving employees’ well-being and how they deal with stress and emotional issues in the workplace. The provided tools and strategies can be applied during the day-to-day working environment, crucial meetings and high pressure situations.”
The major benefits of incorporating meditation into a business are obvious. It reduces stress, increases mental concentration, clarity and awareness; it enhances productivity, effectiveness and communication in the workplace; tense situations are resolved with reduced negative and angry behaviour patterns - encouraging Team work and Customer Service; it expands work/ life/ family balancing skills and ultimately improves overall health and well-being, thus reducing absenteeism.
’Kumara for Business’ offers a wide range of meditation and stress management training programs. “We believe it is important to communicate with our clients to understand what they want to achieve through our programs”, says Liz, “These services can be applied to your workplace individually or as a package customised for your business.” The customer may choose the Introductory session, Stress Management through Meditation, or from the Four Week Program, the Ongoing Meditation Sessions or the Conference & Meetings Sessions.
“The total health and productivity cost of worker stress to American business is estimated at $50 to $150 billion annually.” (Sauter, S.L.; Murphy, L.R.; and Hurrell, Jr., J.J. (1990) Prevention of work-related psychological disorders. American Psychologist. 45(10):1146-1153)
Looking at these figures, businesses shouldn’t hesitate to look seriously at alternative methods to strengthen their employees well-being.
