Some proven benefits of meditation are reduced stress and anxiety, improved brain function and increased energy. But more importantly, the benefits that employers see in their employees with regular mediation are better decision making, increased memory and improved leadership skills.
Google seemed to be at the forefront implementing regular guided meditation thanks to the leadership of Chade-Meng Tan, Google’s 107th employee and author of Search Inside Yourself: The Unexpected Path to Achieving Success, Happiness (and World Peace). Google’s 3-part Search Inside Yourself (SIY) program has been taught to more than 2000 employees since 2007, focusing on: 1. Attention training 2. Self-knowledge and self-mastery 3. Creating useful mental habits.
