The study examined professionals, identified through purposive sampling of (N = 150, 86 males and 64 females). The tools used were–namely, Mindful Attention Awareness Scale (MAAS), Job Involvement Scale and Satisfaction with Life Scale (SWLS). To determine individual’s degree of conscious awareness about things in work settings was assessed by using trait mindfulness construct (MAAS). The present study aimed to see the influence of mindfulness on employees’ life satisfaction and job involvement. Mindfulness was found to be significantly mediating the relationship between life satisfaction and job involvement.

Findings support the hypotheses and claim for the positive correlation between the two constructs.
