As our work and personal lives become increasingly integrated, employees and organizations strive to create community, transparency, and productivity in the workplace. Crafting a holistic employee experience that improves work-life integration can offer a high return on investment, but getting it right requires organizational awareness and responsiveness. A Mindful Organization actively engages with its employees to understand their needs and reduce workplace stress. Leaders work with talent to provide a balanced selection of benefits, policies and programs, and to build a culture that empowers workers to use benefits strategically, helping them to meet their personal needs while fulfilling the responsibilities of their role.
Using a combination of survey data, subject-matter-expert interviews, and secondary research, we studied how organizations were addressing the holistic needs of their workforces.
