Rattled to resilient
How to cope with the ups and downs and bounce back from challenges. In a workplace setting, resilience can be applied to employees' abilities to manage anything from a tough workload to frustrating colleagues. Building resilience in the workplace is vital for any organisation wanting staff to operate at peak efficiency.
Resilience is usually defined as “the positive capacity to cope with stress or adversity”. And resilience in the workplace refers to an employee’s ability to cope with the various challenges of the modern workplace: learning new technology, downsizing, mergers, increased workload, budget pressures or deadlines, or dealing with any environmental adversity such as drought, bushfires and a pandemic.
Research has shown that resilience is “the single most important factor in determining whether a person is successful, satisfied and happy” (Shatt, 2008, The Resilience Factor). Building resilience also reduces stress and lessens the risk of depression and mental illness. Research by the Black Dog Institute shows enhanced resilience leads to a “significant improvement in job satisfaction, productivity and retention in the workplace.” Provide your employees with the resilience training and skills they need to perform at their best.
