Resilience is a key component in the primary prevention of stress at work.

Resilience is the capacity to mobilise personal resources to tolerate and overcome adverse events without experiencing stress, and to grow and develop as a consequence of such events. Some aspects of resilience are personality dependant whilst others are skills determined. All elements can be learnt and strengthened.

Managers and staff have a responsibility to be as resilient as possible against the uncertainties of everyday working lives. Resilience at work is about personal attitude towards work and the events that take place in work and the working environment.
