Is “resilience” the latest buzz word for recruiters, or is it critical to our wellbeing and that of the organisations we are part of? Does it make us more resilient, and therefore better able to cope with adverse events when our purpose in life aligns with the organisation’s values and mission?

Calum Byers, who is one of our lead coaches, is exploring these questions in a survey he is conducting for his MSc dissertation at Henley Business School.

The aim of the survey is to look at purpose in life, the extent to which meaning is derived from work, resilience in a work environment and underlying resilient traits in order to look at the links between them.

This discussion is timely given the recent emphasis on the wider role of the organisation and whether its fundamental purpose is to maximise shareholder return, or to have a responsibility to a range of environmental and social stakeholders. 

Please take this survey

Participants will receive the survey results along with tips on how to incorporate the findings to create an enhanced employee experience.
