Keywords:Employee Mindfulness, Job Performance, Interacting Cognitive Subsystem
Mindfulness is an active state of mind with cognitive presence in the present rather than being distracted by the past or future. This study aims to investigate the relationship (if any) between employee mindfulness and job performance in the Pakistani academia. The relationship’s theoretical base is constructed with Objective Self - awareness (1972), Broaden and Build theory (2008) and Barnard and Teasdale model (1993). Research design is quantitative and cross sectional. Valid scales of five facet mindfulness and HEC evaluation performa have been used to measure employee mindfulness and employee performance respectively. Reliability, correlation and regression analysis have been conducted in SPSS. Findings illustrate that respondents with good performance evaluations also ranked high on the mindfulness scale. The results confirm that employee mindfulness is directly associated with high performance. The study puts forth an action plan to facilitate educators with mindfulness based exercises to sharpen their cognitive ability and improve job performance.
