In this opening section of the course, we look at what resilience means, how you can achieve it, and the common barriers people face when trying to achieve it.

The five pillars of resilience

What makes a person resilient? There are quite a few attributes that can be put into five categories and these are known as the five pillars of resilience and we'll be looking further into them in this section.

A cog to represent our resilience toolkit

Resilience is not about being perfect, it’s about starting where you are, and that means starting small. It’s a skill that can be developed over time by using a few simple tools to get to know yourself - and we show you how in this final section of the course.

About this course

A study conducted by CV-Library, surveying over 300 UK employers, found that 57% of employers see resilience as a key skill for candidates. defines resilience as “Resilience is that ineffable quality that allows some people to be knocked down by life and come back stronger than ever. Rather than letting failure overcome them and drain their resolve, they find a way to rise from the ashes.” 

Effectively, resilience is the ability to be able to bounce back from difficult situations.

Our IOSH Approved Online Resilience Training course will educate your staff on what resilience is, the importance of this skill, how it applies to the workplace, and it touches upon common barriers to building resilience and how they can be overcome.  It also focuses on the 5 Pillars of Resilience:

  • Emotional Wellbeing
  • Future Focus
  • Inner Focus
  • Physical Health
  • Healthy Relationships

Resilience isn’t necessarily something a person is born with. Anyone can develop resilience, as long as they have the tools and are willing to put in some time and commitment. Strengthening your resilience is just like strengthening your muscles - you need to work on it consciously and regularly and you'll reap the rewards.

Good reminder

Good common sense approach and the test was not cumbersome which is something our staff base often complain about.

Very good.

Enjoyed the course. It was very well delivered. I will certainly use and remember key factors in my everyday working and home life.

Some good tools for strengthening

Well paced and presented with good graphics. Some good tools for strengthening resilience without being over analytical.

Good for reflection

I enjoyed this course and found the materials useful,


I was able to understand what is Resilience.

Knowledge put to practice

The course taught me everything that I normally practice.

Useful & sensible

Doesn't deal with major demolition jobs on one's confidence Seemed clear at the time, but looking back at my notes - it appears a complete muddle. I suppose spending a little while sorting out the notes enables the whole thing to mentally "go in".

Why is this training important?

Business benefits

By providing your employees with the tools and techniques to develop resilience, you are helping them understand how to handle a challenging or highly stressful situation, how to adapt, and how to come out stronger and wiser. 

Many employers value resilience as a highly sort after commodity in employees. A resilient employee is likely to be motivated by a change or challenge and see it as a positive opportunity for learning. This course also considers organisational resilience, which refers to the company as a whole. In a company that shows good organisational resilience, employees will be able to navigate their way through any hardships with minimal loss in productivity.
