Resilience and Stress Management Training is a 3-hour course which helps build employee resiliency skills and mental fitness in an ever-changing work environment using evidence-based approaches. This course is supported by West Midlands Academic Health Science Network (WMAHSN).

What is resilience?

Every employee has to recover from setbacks or face adversity at some point during their working life. Our ability to ‘bounce back’ from these challenges is called resilience. Resilient people are better able to manage their feelings, coping with stress in a way that doesn’t adversely impact their behaviour.

Our corporate resilience training is designed to enable employees to increase this capability and help them to identify strategies to reduce their stress levels and perform better in difficult situations.

Why is stress management important?

Everyone experiences stress at some level. Stress is how our body responds to pressure, so sometimes low levels of stress can motivate us and help us complete tasks and achieve goals.

But we must be careful that our feelings of stress don’t last for too long. The effects of chronic stress can be very serious. If left unchecked, long-term stress can lead to physical health problems such as high blood pressure, heart attacks and strokes. Stress can also wear us out emotionally, leading to mental health problems such burnout, anxiety and depression.

Fortunately, it’s possible to deal with stress and improve your wellbeing. By learning how to boost your resilience you will be able to challenge your thoughts and reduce feelings of stress.

Why should your organisation take this resilience in the workplace training course?

Every business will benefit from looking after their employees’ mental health and wellbeing. Workplace stress can easily contribute to poor mental health, so employers can make a huge difference to their employees’ wellbeing by improving their employees’ resilience and ability to cope with stress.

More importantly, having a workforce equipped to deal with challenging and stressful situations will make them happier and more fulfilled. This leads to better productivity and can also reduce the amount of employee absenteeism and presenteeism.

Statistics on workplace stress:

  • Work-related stress is the most common force of stress in the UK, with only 1% of people saying that they ‘never’ experience work stress (Perkbox)
  • A quarter of Britons say they have a mental health problem, and 63% say they know someone who does (YouGov)
  • For every £1 invested in workplace mental health interventions, organisations see a return on investment of between £1.50 and £9 (Thriving at Work Review)
  • 79% of organisations have reported stress-related absence and this figure rises to 90% for large organisations (CIPD)
  • In 2020/21 stress, depression or anxiety accounted for 50% of all work-related ill health cases. (HSE)

Resilience and Stress Management Training Course Feedback

'I learnt how to recognise situations in my daily working and home life that I can work on to reduce my personal stress and build my resiliency skills. We were taken through a process which allowed us to challenge our negative thoughts and look at things from a different perspective. I found the mindfulness techniques really interesting as I had never practised them before and it is something I am interested to explore further and use as a tool to reduce the level of stress. Overall, a very helpful course.' Federica Merella, Consultant Anaesthetist, Birmingham Children’s Hospital
