Mindfulness in the Workplace - Case Study
Mindfulness at Work for Mazars
Poole Mindfulness was commissioned to deliver an introduction to mindfulness in Poole, Dorset. Mazars was interested in how to incorporate mindfulness at work, and how to apply mindfulness in every day work. We delivered two sessions to the 40 staff prior to Covid-19. Mazars, like most other organisations, then found that the staff were required to work from home due to government guidelines.
Poole Mindfulness was then able to deliver a Mindfulness at Work programme to the staff remotely. We focused on managing the distractions at home, working with boundaries with home/work life, managing change and stress, and increasing resilience during the time of the Pandemic.
Sessions were then opened up to Mazars nationally, allowing up to 2,000 staff to access the mindfulness in the workplace sessions. Staff soon reported benefits including:
"Greater clarity of thinking”
“More calm starting my day”
“Sets me up for a focused day”
“Clarity of purpose”
Following The Mindfulness at Work Programme, the below results are based on the feedback we received:
97% of people felt more calm
97% felt more focused, and less distracted
93% said they were less stressed
93% reported being more engaged with their work
Poole Mindfulness was then asked to help onboard the new interns with a Mindfulness at Work introduction and follow up sessions.
Some of the feedback we received:
I would wholeheartedly recommend Chris as an outstanding lead in the mindfulness field. He has led excellent, in demand mindfulness sessions at our firm which have been very well received by both seasoned mindfulness practitioners and those who are completely new to mindfulness. He is also flexible, able to give guidance for best approach whilst also being amenable to requirements of the firm. Thank you, Chris.
