Building a resilient workforce to adapt and thrive in challenging times

Dealing with uncertainty and change is fast becoming the new normal. The unprecedented crises we are facing with the coronavirus is just one example where organisations and individuals are having to adapt quickly to a new way of working. Without the right level of support and personal resilience, individuals are at risk of suffering from increased levels of stress and anxiety. It is no surprise that anxiety and depression are regarded as the top 2 global health challenges and burnout now becoming an occupational phenomenon.

In this session, Audra will provide HR Committee members with an overview of the types of mental health issues that are on the rise across ASEAN and share how culture and leadership play a critical part in positively influencing the resilience and wellbeing of individuals. The session will include a discussion and sharing from HR Leaders on the role of HR in this context and conclude with some practical tips on building a resilient workforce and tips on building personal resilience.
