Abstract：Employee authenticity refers to an individual’s self-awareness, unbiased processing of self-relevant information and unobstructed operation of one’s true or core self at work. Previous research shows that authenticity can promote employees’ work-related wellbeing. Thus, it is worthwhile to study how to improve employee authenticity. Mindfulness training, a psychological intervention method focused on non-evaluative awareness of one’s immediate experience, may be a plausible method, given that it has been confirmed to play a positive role in individuals’ wellbeing, and meanwhile, mindfulness measured by scales is positively related to authenticity. The purpose of this study is to investigate the influence of mindfulness intervention on employee authenticity and work-related wellbeing as well as its mechanism. A total of 76 participants recruited from an enterprise were divided into experimental group and control group, each with 38 participants. The experimental group received the weekly 2-hour mindfulness training for eight weeks while the control group waited during this period without intervention. Before and after eight weeks, all participants were assessed with the Chinese version of Five Facet Mindfulness Questionnaire (FFMQ), the Chinese version of Individual Authenticity Measure at Work (IAM Work), and the scale of work-related wellbeing. The final number of effective participants is 28 for the experimental group and 25 for the control group. Results show: (1) After intervention, the mindfulness level of the experimental group improved significantly than before, while the difference is not significant for the control group. Further, the experimental group had a significant higher difference in mindfulness than the control group. (2) For employee authenticity and work-related wellbeing, the experimental group scored significantly higher than before, while the difference is not significant for the control group. Moreover, the experimental group had a significant higher difference than the control group. (3) Employee authenticity fully mediated the effect of mindfulness on work-related wellbeing. This study suggests that mindfulness training can improve employee authenticity, thus promoting work-related wellbeing, which provides a scientific basis for the application of mindfulness training among employees.
