The summary of evidence provides an overview of the topic area. It provides definitions and common understanding around the topic, the importance of addressing the topic at work, and then a summary of the literature (both practitioner and academic) aimed at addressing the topic at work.
We have selected some of the strongest academic research regarding workplace mindfulness interventions and provided summaries below. All studies have been published in peer-reviewed journals and are presented under three headings: Reviews of mindfulness interventions, Manager Interventions (Mindful Leadership) and Individual Interventions.
Some of the strongest practitioner evidence regarding mindfulness interventions at work has been summarised below. These are empirical studies or work of publishable quality that provide case studies and reviews of interventions conducted in the workplace. The studies are presented under two headings: Manager Interventions (Mindful Leadership) and Individual Interventions.
A number of tools are available to support employees in developing their mindfulness practice and much research has shown the benefits of mindfulness. We have provided some useful links to resources from reputable sources.
A variety of toolkits and guidance documents have been developed to help organisations implement mindfulness interventions in the workplace. These resources have been developed to help practitioners take an organisational approach to mindfulness.
