Executives will benefit most from a series of sessions that take place on a one-to-one basis.  Working with an instructor one-to-one is just like working with any other type of teacher one-to-one. You get personalised coaching that is 100% catered to the individual and their goals, whether that be anything from stress reduction to mindful leadership coaching. We will also select the best practice based on individual needs, whether that be a method like Jon Kabat Zinn’s Body Scan or something more traditional like Vipassana.

6: 2-Week Corporate Meditation Program

 We recommend our two-week corporate meditation program for companies that want to make mindfulness and meditation an integral part of work.

This program is long enough to ensure meaningful results, while being short enough to fit into your busy schedule. The majority of the time, for our 2-week corporate meditation program, the meditation facilitator is brought in twice a week for two weeks. Virtual meditation sessions are also available. 

Each hour of the program is divided into sections for meditation, journaling, and education.

Our 2-week corporate meditation program includes:

  • Mindfulness Basics

5 Benefits of Corporate Meditation Classes for Companies and Employees

Many prominent founders have discussed how mindfulness helped them to become successful. For instance, Steve Jobs, Twitter’s Jack Dorsey, LinkedIn’s Jeff Weiner, and SalesForce’s Marc Benioff. And Fortune 500 companies like General Mills (New York), Comcast (Michigan), Procter & Gamble (Toronto), and Google (California) have started using corporate meditation workshops.

No wonder. There are over 100 proven benefits of mindfulness. It helps both individual employees and their respective companies at large. And best of all, with the increased productivity levels, a corporate meditation program virtually pays for itself.

Proven benefits of corporate meditation classes:

  • Increase innovation (Institute for Mindful Leadership Survey).    Reduce stress
  • Increase emotional awareness (Tang et al., 2015)   
  • Increase creativity (Arizona State University)   
  • Reduce anxiety
  • Improve relationships (Singer 2016; Kok et al. 2013).    Improve working memory and learning (Harvard Medical School)
  • Reduce sick days (Hulsheger et al., 2012).)

Improves employee performance

Researchers from Harvard Medical School in Boston discovered that meditation enhances activity in regions of the brain related to working memory and learning. This essentially means that with a corporate meditation program, employees will learn faster and improve their workplace performance, all while reducing stress.


2: It makes workplaces more creative

It increases creativity according to research from Arizona State University. Plus, The Institute of Mindful Leadership in New Jersey conducted a study that showed that 93% of leaders felt that corporate meditation training improved their innovation, and 70% reported that mindfulness improved their strategical thinking.


3: Balances emotions and raises EQ

Research by Richard Davidson, Ph.D., director of the Center for Healthy Minds at the University of Wisconsin, shows that meditation strengthens the emotional brain and improves EQ. This, in turn, helps to promote healthier workplace relations and better staff morale. A big win for the whole office.


4: Reduces employee anxiety & depression

Furthermore, it reduces anxiety and depression according to numerous scientific studies, including one from Boston University. Note that this in turn naturally reduces absenteeism.


5: Reduces employee stress

Stressed employees claim on average an additional $2000 per year in workers’ compensation claims compared to more relaxed employees. But meditation can help. As Jon Kabat Zinn says, “It’s not about stopping the waves. It’s about learning how to surf.” Our training teaches your employees smoothly surf through those difficult waves while staying calm.


With corporate meditation classes, you will improve company culture for years to come

Ultimately, meditation is the optimum tool for simultaneously increasing the well-being of your employees, reducing staff turnover, and cutting health costs. Plus, it is a gentle and safe option for your employees. Less intimidating than yoga and easy to fit into daily work life, it is as convenient as it is powerful. 

We’ve seen big benefits in our classes across NA, from Vancouver to Toronto to New York and San Francisco, and in industries ranging from government organizations to tech startups and more.

Did you know: Employees find meditation classes more approachable than yoga, and more enjoyable than mental heath training. It’s the perfect solution, and the one your employees want. Request a quote today.

How To Implement Corporate Meditation Classes

As expert corporate meditation coaches, we have created a way to successfully implement mindfulness at work. 


1: Analyze Your Workplace

Different workplaces are susceptible to different kinds of stress. In coworking spaces, for instance, there is often the stress of general busyness. And for nurses and doctors in the healthcare field, there is significant emotional stress.

We begin by analyzing the primary stressors in your workplace. This informs us of how we should create your custom corporate meditation classes.


2: Appoint a wellness team or representative

Make sure you have a designated team or individual to monitor the well-being of your employees. For a startup, this could be one single person. For a large government organization or corporation, it could be the Chief Health Officer along with their team. Either way, ensure that you have delegates responsible for maintaining staff well-being.


3: Quantify and measure your corporate meditation classes

Continually measure staff well-being and health expenditure. This will enable you to calculate the ROI of your onsite or virtual corporate meditation classes. One way to do this is with monthly health questionnaires. We can help you to create these.  You will want to base this questionnaire around the unique challenges your employees face. So if you are a law firm, for instance, you would ask your employees quite different questions to what a school or university would ask. For larger companies, your health consulting firm would likely take care of this. 


4: Work with a qualified corporate meditation coach

Make sure you work with someone who is knowledgeable about the practice, able to lead presentations, and sensitive to the workplace environment.

For instance, here at THE DAILY MEDITATION, we make sure that we use language sensitive to the workplace, which includes making all communications secular. Plus, unlike many other service providers, who only focus on relaxation techniques, we teach a wide range of methods and will help you to select the best techniques for your team.


5: Listen to feedback

Make sure to open a dialogue with your team. The more your team is willing to discuss wellness, the healthier your team will be. This could be done over the phone if you’re a work-from-home company, in a chat over coffee if you’re a small start-up, or in a formal meeting. 


6: Consider a corporate meditation room

One lovely option for your company and its employees is to create a mindfulness room. This is essentially a relaxing, quiet space where workers can sit and meditate. It gives employees a place to relax when they need to. This can be pivotal. Imagine working in the tech sector where you are constantly on a computer. Having one space to just sit and relax for ten minutes helps you to let go and to quieten your mind.

A Word From Paul, 

As a meditation teacher I can honestly say that I love teaching corporate meditation. Why? Because I always hear how stressful employees find their workplaces. Many people believe that it is impossible to be productive and successful at work without the stress. But I’m here to say that it doesn’t need to be that way.

Through my corporate meditation coaching I have witnessed how meditation can make employees more relaxed and more productive at the same time. And on top of this, with meditation, businesses can thrive thanks to improved teamwork and employee communication and reduced problems such as turnover rates and knowledge hiding. 

I’m always excited to welcome new clients. And I look forward to joining you and your team for your next meditation session.
