Two things HR can encourage to develop Positive Resilience in the workforce (30 second read)
The hangover from stressful events or encounters at work can lead some people to isolate themselves. “Me time” to self-reflect is an important aspect of bouncing back stronger after a fall (see here).
However, as HR and Talent practitioners and business partners, it is important to encourage employees to accept help and support from others especially those who care about them.
Encourage these two behaviours
- Chatting with someone. Whether it is a no-distraction chat with a trusted colleague or a videocall with your line manager, make a habit of connecting with people who care about you at work to build well-being.
- Joining a group.Along with one-on-one relationships, some people find that being active in teams, work groups or committees, similar interest communities, or other organisations provides social support, help and perspective. Research groups or professional networks in and outside of work that could offer you support and a sense of purpose or enjoyment when you need it.
