Upskill your team in resilience

Resilience is a hot topic but what does it mean for you and your organisation?

We offer resilience training packages for all levels of your organisation, from frontline staff to your board, tailoring them to your needs and budget. Have a chat with one of our team of resilience specialists to find out how we can help build your organisation's resilience. 

Managing risk in the construction industry

Our recent BRANZ funded project demonstrated the strong link between risk management and productivity.

We’ve created a free resource with tips for construction businesses on how to improve their approach to risk management.

Have you captured your business continuity and resilience lessons from 2020?

Have your crisis response and business continuity arrangements been fit for purpose during the COVID-19 disruptions?

Capturing lessons learned and making changes based on those lessons will help better prepare your organisation for future disruption. We can provide independent facilitation and expertise to help you capture your lessons and ensure you learn from your experiences.

I fully recommend Resilient Organisations' Benchmarking Tool for any organisation.  ... The process was well managed and the project was completed on time and to budget ... the report has given us clear and concise recommendations to adopt.
