Tuesday, October 2, 2018
2:40 pm – 3:40 pm
Resilience, or the ability to adapt to highly stressful or adverse events, is critical to the functioning of employees, teams, and organizations, especially in a fast-paced, ever-changing work environment. This session will provide an overview of the research on workplace resilience and organizational change, including the factors linked to capacity for resilience. Participants will also review the results of the American Psychological Association’s survey on organizational change and its links to job stress and employee well-being and engage in experiential activities that illustrate course concepts and personalize the training. Special emphasis will be given to interventions designed to help build workforce resilience and adapt to changes productively.
