For Wellness Providers

Offering organizations valid and reliable tools and programs to measure, build, and strengthen resilience among enrollees and employees

Most employers want to promote mental wellbeing in the workplace. A major factor making this outcome difficult to achieve is work-related unrelieved stress. Willis Towers Watson (2016) released a report that said 75% of U.S. employers say stress is their number one workplace health concern.1

What can employers do to achieve the goal of improved mental health among employees? 

An increasingly popular approach is to implement resilience programs. According to a survey from Buck Consultants at Zerox, 22% of companies currently have resilience programs and 28% plan to offer them in the future.2

Why are effective resilience programs in demand? Because greater resilience capacity leads to positive responses to change, challenge, and adversity. This is essential in today’s ever- changing and complex workplace.

After more than 25 years of research on resilience, we know that resilience can be measured, taught, and put to work in nearly all areas of life.                    

Our research results show that strengthening resilience leads to:

  • Reduced vulnerability to stress, anxiety, and depression.
  • Increased sense of well-being and overall life satisfaction.
  • Better self-management for chronic illness.
  • Improved healthy behaviors including more exercise and better nutrition.
  • Higher self-rating of overall health.

The Resilience Center can partner with you to:

  • Measure individual resilience and supports as a baseline for action.
  • Prepare your coaches and other health promoting specialists to coach and strengthen individual resilience.
  • Build resilience and strengthen resilience supports for a life that is satisfying, rich, and rewarding.

“I have had an opportunity to create a profile on the test site and I am exceptionally impressed with the resilience scale in this format. I find the format very appealing (graphs, trees) and love how the five components are described, their significance, how this describes someone and most importantly the next steps and actions.

I feel this scale is highly relevant for those we will be supported and could be part of their overall wellness and recovery planning.”

Client Story

Background

A large wellness organization recognized that their current mental health assessment would be more complete if it included a resilience assessment that was both positive and fun to take. Further, they wanted to provide immediate feedback to their participants, which would not only serve as an incentive for participation, but could also be a first step in strengthening resilience.

Plan

We suggested that their employees be given access to the online Resilience Scale, which is a highly reliable and valid assessment for measuring personal resilience capacity. It is easy and quick to complete, positive, and insightful. Upon completion and at the click of the Submit button, the participant receives a detailed and personalized 9-page  Resilience Profile that explains their score and offers recommendations for building resilience.

Intervention

The organization made the Resilience Scale and Profile available to their employees through a branded portal. Employee feedback was very positive. The Resilience Profile served as an excellent starting place for coaching and other interventions. The organization also decided to a Scorecard so that they could establish a baseline resilience score and track aggregate changes in resilience scores over time.

We offered the online Resilience Scale, the Resilience Profile, and a  Resilience Scorecard for employees through an employee Wellness Program.
