At Mimecast Its not just about the bottom line.  Some companies, like Mimecast,have created a high performance culture by caring about their employees emotional and physical well-being.  Yoga and guided imagery? Yes, Mimecast does care about the bottom line, but their methods are unusual. Their goal is to produce high performers by creating a healthy culture through real means.

Mimecast employs a "sleep room" and a "collaboration cafe" (with smoothies). Mimecast is committed to create a happier atmosphere. As part of those efforts, the company offers yoga, collaborative work and dining spaces and healthy lunches for workers.
