Mindful community workplace

With the rise in interest in mindfulness, workplaces are increasingly introducing mindfulness to their staff and leadership. Recent reports show that most Fortune 500 organizations have introduced or are actively providing mindfulness programs to their staff. Some of the most successful workplace mindfulness initiatives have created thriving communities that help advance the interest and increase motivation to keep mindfulness top of mind within the organization's culture. This panel discussion will identify the value of focusing on community building in the workplace, explore the methods leaders have used in cultivating mindful workplace communities, and offer members an opportunity to engage in questions and responses.
