Employee Engagement Petroleum

Concerned about increasing levels of stress within the organization; “Stress is very much a business issue … our line managers have a responsibility for the health of their staff.”


Goals:

Address employee stress in 9 different business units across Europe, Asia and Africa, to:

  • Improve mental clarity
  • Improve decision-making
  • Reduce physical results of stress

Results for the first 500 people trained:

Often/Most of the Time: Pre Post (6 wks) Post (6 mos)
I feel exhausted 39% 22% 18%
I feel worried 35% 16% 12%
I feel angry 18% 9% 6%
I experience sleeplessness 21% 13% 10%
I have aches & pains 30% 16% 12%

 

Agree/Strongly Agree: Pre Post (6 wks) Post (6 mos)
I feel focused 71% 76% 80%
We listen to each other 49% 58% 62%

The background physiology and the science underpinning this technique (HeartMath) are absolutely sound, which is why we went ahead with pilot studies here at our company. Seeing a self-induced change in their own heart rhythms impressed the company’s otherwise skeptical engineers.
