Top 4 Reasons to Offer a Meditation Program
#1 Save Money
A meditation program in the workplace can save money by reducing sick days caused by work-related stress. Meditation may also reduce staff turnover. Stress is linked to increased absenteeism, loss of productivity, and even disability, at an estimated cost to American businesses of around $300 billion a year.
For schools and treatment facilities, meditation programs provide a cost-effective complement to your existing efforts at improving memory, attention, self-esteem and resilience.
#2 Improve Performance
A meditation program can improve performance by fostering morale, problem-solving, mental alertness, concentration and collaboration.
#3 Increase Safety
The World Health Organization calls stress the "health epidemic of the 21st century." A reduction in stress leads to a clearer, more alert mind and less impulsive or rash decision-making, which makes for a safer work, school or treatment environment.
#4 Show Concern for Employees, Students and Clients
Wellness programs show that the administration cares about worker, student and client well-being.
