Resilience in the workplace

The subject matter of wellbeing in the workplace is a topic which is at the heart of Simplyhealth's culture and values. In a time when stress and mental ill health is on the rise and are among the top causes of sickness absence (CIPD Absence Management Survey 2014, in partnership with Simplyhealth) there is now greater recognition placed on the importance of having a happy, healthy and resilient workforce. 

Everyone has the ability to build and maintain their levels of resilience. In order to make wellbeing an integral part of everyone's working life, organisations and their employees need to be engaged and play their part in creating a resilient workplace.

It's this mission that has encouraged us to support Robertson Cooper's Good Day at Work network, which aims to connect and inspire people to have 'a good day at work'.
