Meditation for Corporate Wellbeing

Slide background
Call Will & Jess

With staff accounting for up to 90% of operating costs, organisations like Apple, Google and Nike are seeing tangible benefits from ensuring corporate wellbeing programs are available to their employees.

Even a single digit improvement in productivity, or a small reduction in absenteeism or presenteeism can make a huge difference. However, in our fast paced world, stress is becoming increasingly commonplace and burdensome. It is not just effecting individual wellbeing, it is effecting individual and collective performance and ultimately, the bottom line.

Benefits of Vedic meditation in a corporate environment

REDUCED STRESS

80% of workers report regularly feeling stressed and this has hugely damaging impacts on retention, engagement, motivation, client and colleague relations, clarity, creativity, efficiency, and employee health and wellbeing.

Vedic meditation leads to an average 33% reduction in the stress hormone cortisol, leading to a reduced frequency and intensity of stress response. helping employees feel better, and achieve more.

Employees benefit from enhanced communication with their colleagues and increased motivation to do a good job. They have greater energy levels, can think more clearly and creatively and can execute tasks with greater ease.

“Significantly faster recovery from stress”
Journal of Consulting & Clinical Psychology

IMPROVED PRODUCTIVITY

Vedic meditation leads to greater bloodlfow to the cerebral cortex and greater actviity within the frontal lobes, where our ‘executive functions’ are sited, allowing us to manage information and prioritise tasks.

It also improves sleep quality and facilitates deep rest, allowing the brain to reboot and think more clearly. Greater (and more balanced) activation of the frontal lobes also leads to greater levels of happiness, positivity and wellbeing.

A study from the University of Wisconsin demonstrated that when you’re consistently feeling positive, your productivity rises by 31%, you’re 40% more likely to receive a promotion and nearly 10 x more engaged at work.


“My productivity has gone up 25% since I learned. It”s extraordinary.”

Jasper, SVP, Universal

ENHANCED INNOVATION & CREATIVITY

One of the most consistently notable features of doing Vedic meditation is the increase in cognitive and creative functions. This has hugely significant impact on our  lateral thinking capabilities and our ability to problem solve.

When we meditate, the pre-frontal cortex where our creative thinking takes place, becomes much more active. In addition the brainwave functioning throughout our cerebral cortex begins to mirror that of peak performance (eureka) moments and the more we practise, the more enhanced our creative thinking becomes at all times.

“Greater fluency, flexibility and originality of creative thought”
Journal of Creative Behaviour

INCREASED MEMORY & CONCENTRATION

As meditators we are less disturbed by trivial thinking and we find that we are better able to concentrate on important tasks. We also develop the capability to simultaneously process more information, allowing us to stay on-task even in the face of multiple demands.

Meanwhile, the greater brainwave coherence that is unique to this technique gives us greater access to the deep reservoirs of information that can be found within our sub-conscious.

“People who meditate in the long-term have ‘significantly larger’ hippocampi – the part of the brain associated with memory and learning.”
The Telegraph

BETTER DECISION MAKING (esp. under pressure)

When we are stressed, our field of vision narrows and our critical thinking becomes impaired. As meditators, our stress response no longer interferes. At the same time, the area of the brain that is responsible for rational thinking, becomes functionally more active.

As a result, our decision making capability becomes far stronger and, in the absence of stress, we have nothing hindering our executive functions, even under pressure.

“I’m calmer, less stressed and find this new relaxed state enhances my ability to work effectively and retain information. I’ve also noticed a significant enhancement in my ability to problem solve situations.” 
Nikki, TV Producer, London

IMPROVED HEALTH & WELLBEING

When we meditate, our regulation of oxygen becomes more optimized, resulting in a highly significant reduction in free radicals scavenging their way around our bodies. The result is less cellular decay and a better functioning immune system. The reduction of stress chemistry also results in reduced cholesterol, a normalization of blood pressure and a 87% reduction in the risk of serious heart disease.

There are also notable reductions in the following stress related disorders: anxiety, depression, adhd, acid reflux, IBSstomach ulcers, headaches, migrainesasthmachronic pain, chronic fatigueand many more.

“Vedic meditation leads to 70% reduced days in hospital and 44% fewer visits to the doctors”
