Thank you for being a part of our workFlow community. We can't wait to see what we can grow & build together.
For many of us, the idea of “9-5” is either a distant memory or folklore from an earlier time. Today, the workplace has become a round-the-clock commitment. We are hounded with external pressures, overwhelmed with information overload, and asked to deliver more with less, work longer hours, and have less personal time for renewal activities. In a time when no one seems to have enough time, our devices allow us to be in many places at once... at the cost of being unable to inhabit the place where we actually need to be.
Yoga and meditation are powerful methods for reducing stress and allowing us to actively participate in our own health and well-being. At workFlow, we aim to not only talk the talk, but - every day - walk the walk, with our offer of simple & straightforward practices grounded in ancient traditions, now backed by modern-day research, designed to infuse your day with an instant boost of presence, clarity, and energy, "and over time, restore much needed balance.
There’s been a shift happening in the workplace lately. More and more employees want to feel a sense of purpose in what they do, and a real connection to the organization’s mission. They’re often not satisfied remaining at an organization where they don’t.
Technological distractions and dissatisfaction at work are leading to alarming levels of employee disengagement. Only 33% of U.S. workers are now actively engaged at work, according to a comprehensive 2016 Gallup study. A full 67% of workers said they are either not engaged or are actively disengaged.
