The aim of this study was to investigate the unique effects of mindfulness and self-compassion on several work-related well-being indicators, after controlling for levels of affective organizational commitment. We administered a questionnaire to 140 Italian workers, including measures of the predictors (mindfulness, self-compassion, affective commitment) and of job satisfaction, turnover intentions, and burnout components, i.e. emotional exhaustion, depersonalization, and diminished personal accomplishment. Results of latent regression analyses showed that mindfulness and self-compassion were associated with work-related well-being indicators, beyond the effects of affective commitment, gender, and years of service. These findings suggest that a training in mindfulness and self-compassion could improve well-being at the workplace in an effective way.
