Studies reveal that over time, the levels of perceived work stress are increasing. One study (Source: Families and Work Institute) estimates that 26% of employees face high levels of burnout due to stress. In addition, another study showed 29% of employees encounter extreme stress at work (Source: Yale University Research). These numbers constitute more than a quarter of an organisation’s workforce.

Malaysia is working towards competing with major global players in different industries, and this may mean that stress levels will increase over time. It is therefore critical that employees learn to not only manage stress in the workplace, but to build resilience and grit. This event aims to help increase participants’ knowledge and understanding of stress, its components, and its sources. Gaining such understanding will empower participants to respond to stress in a resilient and “gritty” manner. Employees will first analyse their existing style of managing stress, and be exposed to different resilience- and grit-building techniques and strategies. With opportunities to customise these into individualised solutions for each person, participants will be empowered to build resilience and grit to deliver their very best for the organisation.
