What do the highly successful corporate cultures of Google, Twitter, Zappos & Yahoo have in common?
They have established mindfulness meditation programs to help employees successfully meet unrelenting demands of innovation and productivity.
These companies know that corporate dollars are well spent when they are used to teach people how to take command of their own nervous system through meditation.
Aetna’s CEO reported that professional meditation services delivered 11x return on investment and saved Aetna up to $2000 per employee.
Apple’s Steve Jobs allowed employees to take 30 minutes each day to meditate at work. Many people attribute Job’s stunning accomplishments to his commitment toward meditation practice.
Many other business elite are making their meditation practices public as well, including Oprah Winfrey, Russell Simmons, Rupert Murdoch and Bill Gates.
Meditation is no longer optional for these outrageously successful people, because of the incessant demands place upon them.
Bill Duane, Google’s senior manager for Well Being and Sustainable High Performance Development Programs comments, “At Google, there’s a real need for this (meditation) because we’re constantly setting our goals beyond what is feasible or reasonable.”
Do you feel that you are responsible for oversized goals?
With budget cuts and extensive layoffs, employees left standing are often asked to perform oversized goals that are not “feasible or reasonable” which leads to increased employee resentment, absenteeism and turnover.
To minimize these losses, when businesses more than ever have to do much more with much less, successful corporations are rapidly establishing meditation programs because research demonstrates they yield the following variety of powerful benefits; decreased employee turnover, decreased absenteeism, reduction of injuries, increased creativity and productivity.
Albany Peace Project founder and Biofeedback Specialist, Bethany Gonyea offers the science behind why meditation works, and pracitcal application of this knowledge through corpporate mindfulness programs. Meditation programs offers relatively simple and inexpensive steps for any organization that can yield big results.
Meditation programs work because when people learn how to master their nervous system, they learn how to master themselves.
Ms. Gonyea has been teaching biofeedback and self mastery skills for over twenty years, she started Numinous, a organization that is willing to consider discuss both the science and spiritual applications of such work, and she the spearheaded the 10 year research study, The Albany Peace Project to offer evidence based tools to as many people as possible to dramatically enhance wellness, productivity, and societal peace.
