Building Resiliency in the Workplace During COVID-19
As I write this, we’re in the midst of an unprecedented public health and economic crisis that is impacting every aspect of our personal and professional lives. While there are parts of the situation that we cannot control, that does not mean we are powerless. In fact, I know we’re stronger and more resilient than we often give ourselves credit for. That’s why I’m optimistic that each of us, with the right support, can find it within ourselves to overcome this challenge together.
All of us at Aduro are inspired to come together and lead in areas where we have expertise. Indeed, as experts who sit at the intersection of well-being and performance, we feel a responsibility to offer our support in one of the most impacted areas: the workplace.
Starting today and continuing for as long as necessary, we will be providing resources to help HR leadership manage the heightened anxiety and transition to remote work — best practices to maintain productivity and, most importantly, maximize individual well-being.
Please know that as our team develops and gathers new information, we will share it with you. We have created a dedicated resource hub on our website that will be updated daily. (You may want to bookmark it and share the link with your team.) Also, if there are others who you think could use this content, please forward this resource center to them.

Work-related stress has been on the rise for more than a decade and that doesn’t take into account our current crisis. We think this post about the power of resiliency in the workplace is especially relevant and worth a revisit as you help your people cope with our current reality.
