As we continue to navigate the new environment of the COVID-19 pandemic it is ever more important to manage the impact of the increased stress that the crisis presents. Join us for this webinar with Rachel Austen, Director of Austen Advisory and Sean Maywood, First Five Year Manager and Mental Health First Aid Instructor at PwC to hear how organisations can positively adapt and build resilience through this crisis. You will:
 

  • Gain a shared understanding of what we all mean by resilience and why it is so important
  • Drawing on a case study at PwC, explore types of resilience initiatives other organisations are putting in place and learn how you can implement them in your own organisation
  • Understand and discuss how companies can use scientific measurement tools to take focused action on the degree of stress and build resilience
