Abstract: 
This paper represents an attempt to highlight the organisational mindfulness promotion of engineering management organisations amongst their workforce. Mindfulness is an effective tool for boosting employee well-being, task performance and improving interpersonal relationships in organisations. Companies that undergo a transformation through mindfulness can observe positive returns on each segment in the organisation, making the organisation more productive, resilient and sustainable. The number of mindful organisations can be increased only if companies are willing to learn and spread the whole concept throughout every company level. For this purpose, a survey research is conducted to examine the current situation of engineering management organisations. When previous doubts are examined, while some expected doubts are confirmed, others can be considered unnecessary. Results show that although employees state their doubts and fears about organisational mindfulness programs, they are willing to attend them and believe in innovation capacity of organisational mindfulness. Furthermore, those with prior experience state the influence of organisational mindfulness can be observed in daily work routines. Thus, the research provides implications for future academic theories and professional practices.
