Precision Recruitment Tackles Stress  in the Workplace

Specialist Recruitment Consultancy Precision, based in Leicester have been tackling the issues of stress in the workplace by offering all members of staff an eight week mindfulness course led by Suryacitta of Leicester Mindfulness.

It was been proven that Mindfulness is a simple and effective method to increase happiness in a person and therefore improve a persons mental health. An estimated &pound1.24 billion a year is lost by businesses due to staff off work with stress related illnesses.

Director Phil Walker commented:  “The environment our consultants work in can be very stressful at times juggling many balls in the air on a daily basis. We have looked at what makes people successful in the workplace and believe that a persons happiness is the key to them achieving it. By offering the mindfulness course to our consultants we’re helping to keep them healthy & lsquo;mentally’ which has benefited them and the team as a whole.”

Meditation and regular practice of mindfulness is recommended by the *National Institute for Clinical Excellence* as a proven way to alleviate stress and promote well-being, whereby we pay attention to, and let go of troubling thoughts and emotions and learn to live mindfully in the present moment.

Suryacitta commented:

“With regular practice the benefits of mindfulness in the workplace include:

- calms the chattering mind which enhances focus of attention - increase in emotional awareness and resilience
- greater focus of attention
- increase in awareness of self and other people
- better all round health - increase in creativity and listening skills
- increasing harmony with fellow workers”
Specialist Engineering Recruiter Scott said: “At first I was a bit sceptical about doing a meditation course, however, I thought I’d give it a try. I have to say though after 6 weeks I definitely feel calmer and more able to deal with and take control of my levels of stress. From what Suryacitta’s has taught us I now know how to deal with pressure and not let it build up. It’s definitely had a positive effect on me both in the workplace and at home."
