Why is investing in resilience training and development a smart business choice? In a recent survey of safety professionals across Australia and New Zealand, 76% of people reported that the stress associated with the impacts of COVID-19 had negatively affected employee safety in the workplace. But only 44% had discussed the possible implications and put in place a plan to support their people, beyond their already existing Employee Assistance Programs.
Everyone will be faced with change, challenge and stress at some point in their lives. While some people manage stressful periods effectively, others struggle to cope and find stresses impact their performance at work and at home. Now more than ever, individuals are feeling the effects of stress, distraction and anxiety.
It makes business sense to support your people at this time, but it’s clear that COVID isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. So how can you support your people to cope with the inevitable change, uncertainty and setbacks that lay ahead? The answer is resilience. People who demonstrate this skill bounce back from adversity, manage stress effectively, build trusting relationships, and show adaptability and agility to unpredictable or changing situations.
In this webinar, we’ll explore why supporting your people to actively manage their stress levels and make helpful choices to build their resilience will help them flourish in fast-changing workplaces. We’ll also explore the steps required by leaders to make a tangible change in their business.
