Abstract

The purpose of the present paper is to examine the significance of dispositional mindfulness in prediction of basic psychological need satisfaction and explain how positive psychological strengths and capabilities motivate employees to perform in a stressful work environment. According to self-determination theory (SDT), we have basic, universal psychological need for competence, autonomy, and relatedness. SDT proposes that these basic needs represent the necessary nutriment for healthy, fully functioning personality. The study has been conducted on a sample of 322 IT professionals. Data analysis was performed using correlation and regression analysis. The results indicated that dispositional mindfulness is significantly related to basic psychological need satisfaction. The finding suggests mindfulness is a significant predictor, in fostering basic psychological need satisfaction in employees.

Keywords: Mindfulness, Basic Psychological Need Satisfaction, Self-Determination Theory
