Zen and the Art of Corporate Productivity; More companies are battling employee stress with meditation

A puff piece about corporations that offer meditation classes for their abused workers.
Sometimes meditation classes are offered as a gesture of thanks for a job well done. Consider AOL Time Warner Inc., where the sales and marketing group was reduced from 850 to 500 people three years ago. Meditation classes were incorporated to help employees deal with the new 12-hour days.
Perhaps through meditation the remaining 500 workers will come to realize that working for AOL Time Warner 12 hours a day isn't what they want after all.
