Organizational mindfulness (OM) supports the management and employees working in the increasingly dynamic work environments driven by cloud computing or mobile devices. Specifically, in mindful organizations, such as financial institutions, reliable outcomes arise from om in the face of complex information systems. However, extant is research has disregarded the multilevel structure of mindfulness, especially the importance of mindful organizing (MO) on lower hierarchical levels. Based on data from 256 users of an organization wide cloud-based desktop-as-a-service system, we found a significantly positive influence of the combination of om and mo as well as differential effects for both on job performance.
