Your journey to
a great workplace
Modern working life can be complex, fast paced, challenging, and intense. Whether your employees find this exhausting and depleting, or exhilarating and fulfilling will depend on their levels of resilience.
Resilience is the ability to deal with whatever happens and keep moving forward.
Resilient people, and resilient organisations are not just equipped to survive when faced with challenges; they can find a way to thrive.
There are three key components to sustained success, and when combined they are the building blocks of a workplace that really works – a workplace with
- resilient, switched on and committed people.
- reduced absenteeism
- increased productivity and motivation
- better concentration
- reduced level of stress and depression in employees.
- the ability to put problems into perspective;
- improved, wellbeing and satisfaction.
Ingredients for Resilience
When all of these elements are present in the individual, team and organisation strong, healthy resilience is created.
Control covers many day to day “getting the job done” elements. It includes the degree to which you have an impact on what is happening around you or can influence what is going on. The less control you feel you have the more likely you are to become overwrought and stressed.
Well Being is about all aspects of physical and mental wellness. Reducing stress is certainly a key element, as are creating and maintaining a physically healthy and psychologically balanced lifestyle, and feeling able to maintain a healthy degree of positivity and calmness.
Bounce Back. One thing you can be sure of is that at some point it likely that things will go wrong. Bounce back is the factor that allows you to recover more quickly. It helps deal with unexpected events, practical problem solving, and coping with change.
At WLBC we are keen to further the debate and knowledge around the topic of resilience in the workplace and so want to support your organisational resilience journey as comprehensively as possible.
We see developing these three vital components as an active process where each person is engaged and playing a part in making changes for themselves, with the whole organisation able to benefit from the improvements.
