How Mindfulness Benefits the Workplace
As work culture becomes busier and more demanding, organisations are increasingly conscious of the importance of attentional training and are turning to mindfulness as an effective means of:
- Managing stress
- Creating a more sustainable balance between work and home
- Achieving better focus and productivity
- Work enjoyment
- Effective leadership
What Oscailt Has to Offer
To this end Oscailt has created its own mindfulness programmes to accomplish these ends. We have run tailor-made training courses and workshops for organisations such as Google, Microsoft, Apple, the Royal Irish Academy, the Pensions Authority and Laya Healthcare as well as for schools (including teachers and pupils).
I think this was the best course I have ever done. Not only has it helped me hugely in my personal life, I have really understood how important it is to train my attention. It took a while for me to really grasp this concept, now I really understand that how I approach something is so important. I’ve always felt that I was rushing through tasks and never felt like I was in charge of my workload. I can truly say that work is more enjoyable.

I wasn’t sure what to expect. Some weeks I was a little sceptical but the practices really started to work and gave me food for thought. Little changes have made a big impact both in work and personally.
