Google is going Zen.
Silicon Valley is well known for its lucrative employee perks, but now companies are offering meditation and mindfulness courses to employees and there's a long waiting list to attend. Google's "Search Inside Yourself" course has been taken by more than 1,000 employees and currently has more than 400 on the waiting list. It's designed to teach people to manage their emotions, which could ultimately make them more productive and creative thinkers.
The program was created by Chade-Meng Tan, who was employee #107 at Google. His official job title is "Jolly Good Fellow," which is a drastic change since his days at Google starting out as a software engineer.
He's also come out with a book, "Search Inside Yourself: The Unexpected Path to Achieving Success, Happiness (And World Peace)" which has been ranked a New York Times Best Seller.
"Meng" came to the New York Stock Exchange where he joined CNBC's Tyler Mathisen and Kenny Polcari, director of NYSE floor operations at O'Neil Securities, to give some tips on quick ways to de-stress.
"The first thing it does, it enables you to calm your mind in a crisis," Meng says. "It creates a condition for knowledge and self-mastery. It also creates a condition for empathy and compassion."
But it's not just careers that Meng is hoping to better, as the benefits often reach into the personal lives of some of his attendees too.
"There are people who came to me that say they got promotions because they came to my class, people who say they feel a lot better physically mentally and emotionally and people whose marriage lives are improved."
