Resilience and Wellbeing


Investing in wellbeing is a choice each of us makes, but organisations need to be interested in it too. There are business case arguments for supporting and enabling employee wellbeing

We would wish to see every person able to fulfil their full potential, and that means being healthy, and dealing with the inevitable setbacks and difficulties that happen in all human life.


About Resilience and Wellbeing

Resilience is our ability to deal with life’s difficult situations when they come up, and wellbeing – as we see it – is the self care and management we put into our lives to remain mentally, emotionally and physically well. It is generally the case that investment in wellbeing helps greatly with resilience.

Investing in wellbeing is a choice each of us makes, but organisations need to be interested in it too. There are business case arguments for supporting and enabling employee wellbeing – for the organisations bottom line (59% of long term sickness is due to mental ill health, and there was a 39% rise in stress related absence in 2020 [1])  for its staff engagement [2], and for its reputation [3] – but we argue that the primary driver should be a genuine concern for employees as people – it should be attended to not because it adds value but because it is right.

What we do

As far as possible we at Ascolto build wellbeing and resilience into all of our interventions – audits, studies, courses, coaching, etc. But we also offer specific interventions with corporate wellbeing training for managers and staff, resilience coaching, and corporate and public training courses in mindfulness.
