Employees are the heart of any organization. For any organization to operate efficiently and without any interruption, employee cooperation is a necessary component. It is of utmost importance that the employees of an organization not only have a good relationship with the top management and coworkers but also, they maintain a healthy and professional relationship with the public or clients too.  Government is the system in which many people are gathered together to serve the public under different departments. It is the place in which workers get a chance to interact with the public directly especially workers in local self-government. Government employees are regularly trained in their responsibilities and duties, while the approach may differ by agency or government level. But still, there are situations in which employers can not involve fully in their job because for some reasons. For example, the type of job they are involved in, unwanted anxieties and stress, and maybe lack of confidence too. Broadly conceptualized, mindfulness has been described as a non-elaborative, nonjudgmental present-centered awareness in which each thought, feeling, or sensation that arises in the attentional field is acknowledged and accepted as it is. So this study aims to find out the relationship between self-efficacy and job involvement among government employees and whether mindfulness can bring any positive changes in these variables.
