National Safe Work Month

Building resilience means building a motivated workforce and cultivating a healthy team environment. 

Creating a healthy and united workforce

The year 2020 has been difficult for employers and employees alike. 

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, businesses have had to pivot in unprecedented ways and make tough choices, such as cutting down on their teams’ hours. These changes have taken a physical, mental and financial toll on many workers.

Whether you’re running a business, leading a team, or making big decisions, it’s important to cultivate resilience in your team during this challenging time. 

When you build resilience, you build a motivated workforce and a healthy team environment.

Building resilience can help foster strength in a range of situations, whether your team is experiencing setbacks and challenges, or navigating life’s ups and downs.

It can protect the mental health of employees when they’re facing a lack of social support, experiencing trauma, or confronting stressful life events, all of which they may have experienced during this year.

But building resilience requires courage, support, and optimism. It’s a team effort.

Fortunately, resilience can be learned and developed by anyone. Building a resilient workplace is about effective leadership, open communication, and playing to your team’s strengths.

Build resilience, and you’ll build an empowered and confident workplace.

The Building Resilience campaign is run by the Air Conditioning & Mechanical Contractors’ Association (AMCA) for National Safe Work Month 2020.
