A good summary of the state of research to date is included in Mindfulness, Behaviour Change and Decision Making: An Experimental Trial,
Jessica Pykett, Rachel Lilley, Mark Whitehead, Rachel Howell, Rhys
Jones (January 2016):
"Research studies in workplaces have primarily emphasised the role of mindfulness programmes on staff wellbeing, mental health and stress-reduction - tackling problems of sickness absence, presentism, high staff turnover, depression and anxiety. Research and commentary has also explored the business role of mindfulness in terms of improving employee performance, resilience and social relationships in the workplace, work engagement and in reducing emotional exhaustion and improving job satisfaction".
In 'Contemplating mindfulness at work: An integrative review.
(Good, D.J., Lyddy, C.J., Glomb, T.M., Bono, J.E., Brown, K.W., Duffy, M.K.,& Lazar, S.W. (2016). Journal of Management, 42(1), 114-142.) Mindfulness is linked to workplace outcomes as follows:
The evidence base for mindfulness at work: Performance
- In June 2016, 38 workplace context mindfulness research studies linked mindfulness to improved workplace performance
- Research papers were published between 2005-2015, with 71% of them being published between 2012-15
- The studies included staff from armed services, call centres, healthcare, high tech, leaders, manufacturing, social work teachers, utility companies
Research linking mindfulness to improved workplace performance includes:
- Mindfulness widens your attentional breadth Dane, E. (2010). Paying attention to mindfulness and its effects on task performance in the workplace. Journal of Management 37(4), 997-1018.
- Mindfulness-based practices in the workplace enhance employee self-regulation of thoughts, emotions, and behaviours, linking them to both performance and employee well-being in the workplace. In addition, mindfulness enhances social relationships in the workplace, making employees more resilient in the face of challenges, and increased decision making and task performance. Theresa M. Glomb, Michelle K. Duffy, Joyce E. Bono and Tao Yang,(2011): Mindfulness at work. Personnel and Human Resources Management, Volume 30, 115-157
- Study involving 231 employees concluded that mindfulness is beneficially associated with employee well-being, as measured by emotional exhaustion, job satisfaction, and psychological need satisfaction, and with job performance, as measured by task performance, organizational citizenship behaviours
Reb J, Narayanan, J, & Ho ZW, (2013). Mindfulness at Work: Antecedents and Consequences of Employee Awareness and Absent-mindedness. Mindfulness, February 2015, Volume 6, Issue 1, pp 111-122
The evidence base for mindfulness at work: Relationships
- In June 2016, 45 workplace context mindfulness research studies linked mindfulness to improved relationships at work.
- The papers were published between 2008-2015, with 71% being published between 2012-15
- The studies included employees from a wide range of sectors
Mindfulness improves employee relationships: research includes:
- Persons who practice mindfulness are better able to cope and remain calm in difficult work situations; be more likely to experience work difficulties as challenges than threats; enjoy their work more; be more adaptable at work; and have more positive interpersonal relations at work. McCormick, Donald W & Hunter J (2008) Mindfulness in the workplace: an exploratory study.
- Mindfulness may benefit equanimity both outside and inside the workplace. The study suggests that mindful people were less hostile in their behaviours in part because they were less prone to hostile feelings. Krishnakumar S, Robinson MD (2015) Maintaining An Even Keel: An affect-Mediated Model of Mindfulness and Hostile Work Behaviour
- Mindfulness influences attention, with downstream effects on functional domains of cognition, emotion, behaviour, and physiology. Ultimately, these domains impact key workplace outcomes, including performance, relationships, and well-being. Good, Lyddy, Glomb, Bono, Brown, Duffy, Baer, Brewer, Lazar (2015) Contemplating Mindfulness at Work: An Integrative Review
Mindfulness improves leadership: research includes:
- Supervisor mindfulness reduced employee emotional exhaustion and increased employee work-life balance. It improved employee performance and staff engagement. Supervisor mindfulness was positively related to employee job satisfaction and psychological need satisfaction. Furthermore, leader mindfulness was positively related to overall job performance, as well as to in-role performance and organizational citizenship behaviours Reb J, Narayanan J, & Chaturvedi S, 2012. Leading Mindfully: Two Studies on the Influence of Supervisor Trait Mindfulness on Employee Well-Being and Performance: Springer Science+Business Media, LLC 2012
- A study involving over 1000 leaders in a range of roles in organisations across New Zealand concluded "The findings of this study attest to the positive impact that mindfulness seems to have in combating a number of dysfunctional outcomes affecting today's leaders. Roche, M., Haar, J. M., & Luthans, F. (2014) The Role of Mindfulness and Psychological Capital on the Well-Being of Leaders. Journal of Occupational Health
- Research on healthcare managers found that significant positive changes in leadership were reported by mindfulness retreat participants and that this was confirmed by their colleagues. The aspects of leadership which showed statistically significant improvements were 'leadership effectiveness' and 'balanced processing.' Follow-up interviews were carried out post-intervention which showed significant increases in mindfulness and corresponding decreases in stress that were sustained across eight weeks post-retreat. Wasylkiw, L. (2015) The impact of mindfulness on leadership effectiveness in a health care setting: a pilot study" Journal of health organization and management Vol 29 (7) pp893 - 911.
The evidence base for mindfulness at work: Well-being
- In June 2016, 58 workplace context mindfulness research studies linked mindfulness to improvements in employee well-being.
- Research was conducted between 2008-2015, with 75% published between 2011-16 75%
- Employees included in the research include armed forces, bio-tech, call centres, emergency services, healthcare, hotels, insurers, leaders, manufacturing, phamaceuticals, sales, social work, teachers, transport companies, universities
Mindfulness improves well-being: research includes:
- RCT with Dow Chemicals employees. After mindfulness training Stress decreased, Mindfulness, resilience, work engagement and vigour and employee well-being increased. Key improvements included
Aikens, Astin, Pelletier, Levanovich, Baase, Park, Bodnar (2014) Mindfulness goes to work: impact of an online workplace intervention.
- 30 percent reduction in perceived stress
- 50 percent decrease in number of high stress episodes
- 13 percent increase in resiliency
- 15 percent incroserrease in work engagement and vigour
- 50 percent decrease in employee burnout
- Mindfulness leads to improved work engagement and general well-being. It also improves job satisfaction, hope, optimism, resilience. The results indicate that non-reactivity and being non-judgemental are important skills for the workplace
Peter Malinowski and Hui Jia Lim (2015) Mindfulness at work: Positive affect, hope, and optimism mediate the relationship between dispositional mindfulness, work engagement and Well-being.
- A study involving Employees in a busy call centre - After mindfulness training client satisfaction increased. Stress anxiety, depression, fatigue and negative affect (low mood) decreased for all employees throughout the intervention Grégoire, S., Lachance, L., & Taylor, G. (2015) Mindfulness, mental health and emotion regulation among workers.
Mindfulness reduces the risk of burnout: research includes:
- Research involving 113 Canadian elementary school teachers concluded that Teachers who participated in mindfulness training showed greater focused attention and working memory capacity, and occupational self-compassion, as well as lower levels of occupational stress and burnout at post-program and follow-up. Roeser, R. W., Schonert-Reichl, K. A., Jha, A., Cullen, M., Wallace, L., Wilensky, R., & Harrison, J. (2013) Mindfulness training and reductions in teacher stress and burnout: Results from two randomized, waitlist-control field trials.
- "Participating in an abbreviated mindfulness training course adapted for primary care clinicians was associated with reductions in indicators of job burnout, depression, anxiety, and stress. Modified mindfulness training may be a time-efficient tool to help support clinician health and well-being, which may have implications for patient care" Fortney, Luchterhand, Zakletskaia, Zgierska, Rakel (2013) Abbreviated Mindfulness Intervention for Job Satisfaction, Quality of Life, and Compassion in Primary Care Clinicians: A Pilot Study
- A pilot study working with Dutch GPs showed promising results in assisting busy practitioners in reducing stress and burnout using a short course. The study shows that Mindfulness for GPs is feasible and might result in fewer burnout symptoms and increased work engagement and wellbeing. Verweij, Waumans, Smeijers, Lucassen, Rogier Donders, van der Horst, Speckens (2016) Mindfulness-based stress reduction for GPs: results of a controlled mixed methods pilot study in Dutch primary care
The evidence base for mindfulness at work: Training format, duration, session length, practice requirement
- Of the 100 papers published in June 2016, most did not specify the exact format of the mindfulness intervention (MBI) used, making it difficult to compare like with like. Of those that did state the MBI used, 12 studies used MBSR, and 6 studies used MBCT
- 28 studies demonstrated the achievement of desirable workplace outcomes from shortened courses
- 20 studies demonstrated the achievement of desirable workplace outcomes from courses with shortened durations, and or session lengths
- 20 studies demonstrated the achievement of desirable workplace outcomes from courses with shortened practice requirements
- Of the studies that documented the duration of mindfulness courses studied, 18 were 8 week duration: 11 were 4-6 week duration. The latter demonstrated desirable outcomes from shortened courses.
- The Duration of teaching sessions in the studies varied from 30 mins (2 studies), 1 hour (3 studies) 1.5 hours (3 studies), 2.5 hours (3 studies)
- Daily practice requirements for participants for the duration of the course varied from 10 mins (3 studies) 15 minutes (6 studies), 20 minutes (6 studies) -all produced desirable workplace outcomes, demonstrating that shortened practice requirements can produce similar outcomes to longer practice times.
- 6 studies demonstrated a direct correlation between practice time and outcomes: in general the more you practice, the better the outcomes
- 10 studies demonstrated that the impact of mindfulness training continues after the training ends
Gaps in evidence and open questions remaining:
Mindfulness, Behaviour Change and Decision Making: An Experimental Trial (2016) comments that "It is however clear that there are still significant research gaps -
particularly in the case of programmes with non-therapeutic goals.
is limited research on the use of mindfulness for workplace learning,
decision making, productivity, organizational culture, adaptability,
values, behavioural, social and organizational change.
lacks a substantial body of evidence on mindfulness and leadership,
creativity, work engagement, job satisfaction, emotional exhaustion and
employees' cognitive skills.
- There is a wide range of
evidential standards present within existing studies on mindfulness. The
activities of control groups are not always thorough, and there is
often an over-reliance on self-report questionnaire methods which are
not uncontested in field of psychology.
- Studies often lack independence in terms of funding sources and the private interests of the research teams.
and/or contradictory variables can make it difficult to discern the
actual and potential effects of mindfulness in the workplace."
Open questions remaining include:
- How effective are workplace based mindfulness interventions in achieving their aims?
- What works in workplace based mindfulness interventions and what conditions are required for workplace mindfulness to work?
- Which delivery models are most effective (and does one size fit all?)
- How does organisational culture impact on outcomes
- Is it right to assume that evidence gathered in clinical settings will readily translate to the workplace?
- Are shortended courses and shortened practices as effective in producing desirable workplace outcomes as longer courses?
