According to the American Institute of Stress, job-related anxiety has increased for decades with no signs of slowing. About 80 percent of workers are affected by vocational pressures, and nearly half say they need help in managing the rising levels of stress they experience, according to AIS research. The “overwhelmed employee” represents the hallmark of today’s working standard, rather than an isolated phenomenon or individual struggle. That’s why some of the largest and most productive organizations, companies such as Pfizer and Google, are championing mindfulness initiatives as part of their overall wellness solutions. Let’s explore the realm of mindfulness and how contingent workforce leaders can launch their own efforts to revitalize and reenergize their programs.
