In this chapter, Drs. Haziq Mehmood and Oi-ling Siu maintain that employees face interruptions by using social network sites (SNSs) during office hours. This type of interruption affects the employee’s job performance and well-being. In this scenario mindfulness plays an important role to mitigate the interruptions caused by social network use. They discuss an experiment to relate the role of mindfulness as an intervention to deal with the interruptions caused by SNSs. It was concluded that mindfulness meditation is helpful to reduce the distractions and interruption effects in employees. Employees and organizations need to consider this intervention plan to increase employee’s job performance.
