Mindfulness techniques are being promoted in the management press as the answer to changing the way people think, feel and act in the workplace. The claims made are considerable and growing: that it reduces stress and sickness absence; re-energises employees and improves personal resilience; enhances an individual’s ability to cope with change and uncertainty; increases creative thinking; and increases socially responsible behaviour at work.

Should we embrace mindfulness or be sceptical? What are the pros and cons? This briefing found out more about the concept of mindfulness, how to bring it into organisations and the opportunities it presents for HR.
