It’s the ability to cope with stress and pressure, learn from the past and bounce back even stronger than before. Some of us are naturally better than others at coping with a stressful, fast-changing environment.
However, just as exercise helps to build physical capability, so Emotional Resilience Training helps to build the capacity to respond and adapt to changes in the workplace.
Resilience is about understanding who or what pushes our buttons and makes us react negatively, how we can manage these triggers, and generally how we can approach change and challenges with a more positive mindset and so achieve better results for ourselves both at work and in our personal lives.
A recent survey of employers in the UK revealed that absenteeism costs UK businesses around £10.5 billion a year, and that stress-related absenteeism was the second highest absence among non-manual employees.
Added to this is the number of employees who underperform due to the pressures of work-life balance, change and restructuring, personal problems etc. Workforce Resilience can help organisations and individuals cope with today’s business environment of rapid change, faster pace and the need to deliver higher customer expectations with fewer resources.
