Mindfulness is a practice that can help improve concentration, performance, reduce stress and increase wellbeing.
NICE (National Institute for Health and Care Excellence) note that:
Mental wellbeing at work is determined by the interaction between the working environment, the nature of the work and the individual (NICE PH22). However, in the public sector, 72% of public sector employers reported an increase in mental health issues for staff last year, Health, Wellbeing & Mindfulness (Briefing Paper, the Mindfulness Initiative, 2019).
The NICE quality standard ‘Healthy workplaces: improving employee mental and physical health and wellbeing’ (QS147) recommends organisations and employers develop workplace solutions to reduce the risk of stress and identify when to provide additional support.
