At Space to Breathe we believe that everything is spiritual. Given that most of us spend up to one third of our waking weeks at work it made sense for us to connect our services to workplaces.
Space to Breathe proves constructive support to companies to boost employee wellbeing and value. We also work with business leaders to help them empower and develop their employees. Our work took off when we worked with BG Group in Reading and discovered that spirituality had a lot to offer the imagination and wellbeing of businesses and their employees.
Since the 1990’s “Workplace Spirituality” has grown in influence. In 2005 Business Week Magazine ran a front-page article on the rise of the movement. Seeking new ways to spark creativity, firms were “trying to motivate employees and create a strong identity or soul” they reported. Companies such as Boeing, Proctor & Gamble and BASF all use spirituality as a tool to help them become more effective.
However, spirituality has also provided a helpful tool in supporting the wellbeing of people at work. In 2008 PWC estimated unexpected resignations cost the UK economy £42 billion per year. Chief amongst reasons for leaving were bad relationships at work, poor leadership and feeling undervalued. Our work seeks to address these areas directly.
