This masterclass will examine case studies of workplace mindfulness programmes: What are the objectives? Who is it for? How can mindfulness trainings be best delivered and scaled (digital vs. live) and how does that impact programme quality and outcomes?

This will provide delegates with a map of how mindfulness practices in organizational settings can support change. The day will include an overview of some of the key research in the field of mindfulness in the workplace and support delegates in critiquing this evidence base.

Finally, the masterclass will overview evaluation approaches to assessing the impact of any intervention in workplace settings.
