In the backdrop of the COVID-19 pandemic which has made ‘working from home’ the new norm, ‘Vidullanka PLC’ organized a session on mindfulness for its executives, senior managers and Directors to address the numerous challenges faced by remote working. Conducted by Mr. Deepal Sooriyaarachchi, a management development consultant, trainer, author, speaker, and chartered marketer, the session focused on how employees could remain focused in their new working environment while continuing to maximize their potential.
Mr. Sooriyaarachchi emphasized the probable increase in employee stress and anxiety during these trying times which could potentially be exacerbated by economic concerns and financial stability among other environmental stressors. He outlined and explained the power of mindfulness meditation and how it could be practiced consciously to reduce symptoms of stress, anxiety and depression. Employee care is at the heart of ‘Vidullanka PLC’s’ business operation and this session was to support its team to stay motivated, focused and happy.
