By developing employee’s capacity to perform under stress and thrive in high-pressure environments, it results in increased engagement, wellness, confidence and productivity. Stress related absences cost Canadian businesses $5 billion a year. Stress is a significant part of the problem of workplace mental health issues that cost Canadian businesses over $30 billion a year. It is also the fastest growing category of disability.
Businesses have a legislated duty to be proactive in prevention of stress related illness, and have a duty to accommodate employees that can’t perform their regular duties due to stress. Beyond the legislated requirements, it makes good business sense to be proactive. Job stress can result in burn-out, employee turn-over, absenteeism, presenteeism, disengagement, conflict, low morale, and decreased productivity. Compounding this is the issue of many Millennials entering the workforce that are ill-prepared emotionally to suffer set-backs, experience adversity and conflict, and deal with perceived unfairness in the workplace. Does this sound familiar?
Resiliency training is not about avoiding stress, it’s about increasing an individual’s capacity to handle stress in a healthy manner.
