Resilience Training in Ireland
Engaging With Overworked, Underperforming Workers.
Ireland might be famous for its laid-back lifestyle, but the reality is that many Irish people are living with high levels of stress in the workplace. However, resilience training can help, by empowering people with the skills they need to adapt and move forward.
At Wiser Working, we offer resilience training and corporate stress management programmes across Ireland, helping employees from Cork to Carrickfergus, and everywhere in between.
Read on to find out what we deal with and how we can improve your team through our resilience training workshops.
Rising Stress Levels
Research by the Economic and Social Research Institute has found that around 18% of absences from work nationally are due to stress, depression and anxiety. However, time off sick is just the tip of the iceberg, since another survey found that 82% of employees said they were facing an increased level of stress at work.
Changes to workplaces, including advances in technology, are steadily adding to pressure on staff. Resilience and flexibility are needed for individuals to manage all the demands being made on them.
Building resilience to stress in the workplace enables employees to effectively deal with daily demands and bounce back in the face of challenges. As a learnable skill, resilience training can equip a workforce with the capacity to be more productive and improve overall wellbeing.
HR departments are keen to help employees to adapt to change/cope with stresses but may not always know how to go about this. Resilience training can help, teaching staff the skills they need not only to cope with current challenges, but to feel more confident in their ability to handle other demands in the future.
Our resilience training programmes in Ireland offer individuals the opportunity to reflect on their current coping mechanisms and introduces them to effective strategies and mindset shifts that establish real solutions to managing stress.
How our workshops help
Our resilience workshops and programmes offer baseline resilience training in the fundamentals of resilience for stress and are delivered to from board level to the shop floor.
Establishing a meaningful culture of corporate resilience is the starting point. Our programmes can be designed to challenge the premise that stress management is purely the remit of the occupational therapy department. We truly believe that resilience is a skill that can be learned, priming employees for unforeseen challenges, enabling them to seamlessly glide through choppy waters.

Wiser Working’s resilience training programmes can be applied to each business need, including talent management, employee engagement, team performance, culture development and helping millennials adjust to working life.
