Abstract

Workplace stress is costly to both employee and employer. Consequences include decreased physical and mental health, impaired job performance, higher personnel costs and increased employee turnover. Workplace wellness programs are increasingly incorporating mindfulness-based interventions to address this burden (e.g., meditation training, yoga). This presentation will provide an overview of this emerging strategy, including the challenges of developing, testing, and disseminating evidence-based programs in diverse workplace settings.
