Why mindfulness for workplaces?

Some people lack the tools and skills to be able to achieve balance at work. Research shows that mindfulness can help staff take a pre-emptive approach to managing their mental health, their stress and their emotions in the workplace.


Meet Andy.

He introduced Smiling Mind into his business to help his staff be successful at work and in life.


1 in 5 Australians have taken time off work in the past year due to feeling mentally unwell

Mental Health in the workplace is everyone's business.

Change in statistics like this start at the top, where business leaders need to adopt a pre-emptive approach to the mental health of their staff.

Every dollar spent supporting staff with mental health issues yields a 230% return in improved productivity

But good leaders don't just care about productivity, they care about people.

Staff are an organisation's most precious asset and supporting them through mental health issues will keep them engaged.

Untreated mental health conditions cost businesses about $11b every year

You've told us that staff retention and absenteeism is a huge issue for a modern workplace.

Why do we charge for the workplace program?

Because our app is 100% free to over two million people and we need funding to help every mind thrive.

Unlike other workplace wellbeing offerings in the market, our profits are used to keep our app free and help Smiling Mind support the delivery of mindfulness resources in Australian schools.


Imagine a workplace where your colleagues and employees are less stressed and more productive everyday. A workplace where, for 8-hours a day, staff use tools to have a better balance between their desks and their families.

The science behind mindfulness 


We put our Smiling Mind app for workplaces to the test with a global tech company

IBM believes that wellbeing and employee engagement go hand-in-hand with productivity and profits.

A survey of our digital learning platform among IBM’s employees found: 

  • 68% of users reported a greater sense of calm
  • 42% reported feeling more focussed

What staff are saying

“If someone can become more creative, have higher levels of pattern-recognition, greater confidence, greater motivation, greater focus, greater concentration, less anxiety and less brain fog, obviously they’re going to be more valuable to a company.”

“We acknowledge that the world of work is more intense than ever. Significant change and complexity being thrown at us, in particular since the global financial crisis – dealing with change and complexity has become the new normal as businesses seek to adapt, survive and thrive. This calls on extra levels of resilience from everyone. Positive psychology in particular mindfulness meditation can support people’s resilience levels and assist people to manage the stressful environment we live in”.

“I’ve seen quite a few introductions to mindfulness practice and I think this is one of the best and most accessible ones I’ve seen. Lucy’s use of analogies makes it really easy to understand the concepts and benefits of mindfulness. Good job on bringing this into BP.”
