Organisational Resilience is the dynamic capability of an organization to successfully deal with existential threats, stresses or crises - and emerge better equipped for the future. More specifically, it relates to the organisation's systemic ability to anticipate, cope and adapt.
Our guide to building organisational resilience takes a deeper dive into the latest thinking about this potential important phenomenon and how it differs from other resilience concepts. including team and individual (mental) resilience. We suggest how it could be more important for the wellbeing of your people to tackle organisational resilience, than to focus on programmes that support individuals. This may mean investing in structures, systems and processes, but it also means taking a good look at your people strategy and employee experience.

What will help you and your people to anticipate, cope with and adapt to potential crises or disruption?
