"Stress is widely acknowledged as a drain on the bottom-line of workplaces of all kinds. The WorkLife Integration Program offers employers a solution that can be brought right into the work environment," said Steven D. Hickman, PsyD, executive director of the UC San Diego Center for Mindfulness. "The program helps shape a positive, better workplace culture through mindful awareness and practice. Tangible results include improved health, reduced absenteeism, and facilitating the expansion of mindful leadership."

The mission of the WorkLife Integration Program is to provide tools for employees who want to develop a healthier relationship with stress, one that allows them to control their response to stress, and not let stress control them. Additional benefits may include improved working memory and concentration and anxiety reduction.
