Webinar by Ms. Ruchika Sikri
Our second guest for the Pragyan talk series was Ms. Ruchika Sikri, former head of wellbeing, learning programs and strategy, Google and, currently leading learning and engagement programs in Google cloud. She is also one of the advisory board members of Samatvam – The Mindfulness Centre at IIM Bodh Gaya.
The topic of the session was “Mindfulness in the workplace: A crucial skill for personal wellbeing and professional success”, where she talked about how Google incorporates mindfulness in the workplace to bring the best in Googlers and make it the happy place it is. Not only she talked about the incredible magic that mindfulness does, but she also inspired us by sharing how she started mindfulness sessions at Google with just a handful of people, which gradually grew into a big family of 120k+ Googlers worldwide. She also discussed how mindfulness had shaped the beautiful journey of her life. In the end, we also practiced a short mindfulness session which left us relaxed and refreshed.
