Impact of Meditation on top MNCs
Steve Jobs took a practice that worked for him and shared it with Apple’s corporate culture. He was considered a pioneer of “mind technology” when he introduced Zen mindfulness meditation to the corporate structure at Apple. Workers have access to a meditation room, 30-minute daily meditation breaks, and on-site yoga and meditation classes, which were all part of a process that Steve used to reduce his own stress, gain more clarity, and enhance his creativity.
Google was lucky enough to have one of their original software developers spearhead a program at Google that began in 2007 called, “Search Inside Yourself.” Google offers an on-site meditation space and meditation courses, believing that meditation can help improve not only employee mental health and well-being, but the company’s bottom line as well.
Yahoo offers meditation rooms and free meditation classes for employees to benefit from and reduce stress while at work. It seems that tech companies like Yahoo are the early adopters of the mindful meditation at work culture with magazines like Fast Company touting meditation as a “must-do” to get hired.

Nike employs a mindfulness and meditation coach who recently led a workshop for a team of Nike employees. This team consisted of about 13 innovators who perform and execute significant duties for Nike—most of them are focused on leading the global brand in new directions. Mindful leadership events like this have become a benefit of working for the large sports brand.
HBO has a new hit show Enlightened and it looks like some of that enlightenment has rubbed off on their headquarters. The company boasts a gym, yoga classes, and weekly meditations. They may produce television, but they don’t encourage a culture of couch potatoes.
