There’s hardly a day that goes by where reports of overworked employees aren’t published: healthcare, education, the private sector… and the cost to organisations is well-documented:
The picture looks bleak, but it doesn’t have to. There is a simple solution: resilience.
The good news is that most absences can be effectively managed and minimised by improving working conditions, showing appreciation, treating employees fairly and promoting a culture of wellbeing.
Our resilience training is the perfect compliment to other services offered by ELP & the Relience Wellbeing Partnership
Why? Because it drives change at a deep level by challenging everyone – at all levels of the organisation – to embrace a new approach to relationships and communication.This is achieved by providing a resilience offering to organisations that takes a holistic approach, bringing everyone into alignment, from the ‘top-down’ as they say, to ensure that the language of resilience is embedded into the culture and rings out across departments.
Our workshop and one-to-one coaching combination provide the opportunity for each participant to learn the tools and techniques to become more resilient, including:
Workshops provide the opportunity to understand these elements in relation to others, whereas the coaching can enable change at a personal level.
When you partner with us, we’ll take a deep look at your current challenges and build a programme that targets these specific areas. The elements described above can be added to or removed according to your specific organisational needs.
The business case
Resilience isn’t about doing more or working harder; it’s about being able to spot the signs of overwhelm in ourselves and others early and then respond appropriately.
The latest estimates from the UK Labour Force Survey (LFS) show:

…. It is what allows each of us to recover from change or hardship, whether in the workplace or life in general.
Our simple yet highly effective tools – taught via a full day workshop and a series of one-to-one coaching sessions – have been known to bring about:
According to various reports into sickness absence within the workplace
> stress has forced one in five workers (19%) to call in sick, yet the vast majority of these (93%) say they have lied to their boss about the real reason for not turning up
> the total number of cases of stress in 2010/11 was 400,000 out of a total of 1,152,000 for all work-related illnesses (HSE 2012)
> ‘presenteeism’ costs businesses 105 times more than sickness absence (AXA PPP)
> British businesses lose an estimated £26 billion each year in sickness absence and lost productivity. With greater awareness and mental health support, the organisation, ‘Mind’ believes that businesses could reduce these losses by £8 billion a year’

“We took one organisation’s high rate of stress and anxiety-related absenteeism from 8% to 0.2% for five consecutive years.”
