The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in high levels of fatigue, reduced self-care, and increased stress levels. Building resilience skills is not about ignoring stress, rather resilient people recover faster under pressure and have lower levels of anxiety and depression. In the workplace, this results in less employee turnover, less absenteeism, and less healthcare costs for employers.
