Employee Resilience Tool

The Employee Resilience Tool measures an employee’s resilience level. The tool can be used for individual self-assessment, organisation-wide employee resilience assessment as well as cross-sector employee resilience assessments.
The tool is based on employee reporting on their work attitudes.  Employees are asked to rate themselves on a scale of 1 (never) to 5 (always) in response to 9 statements about their behaviours at work.

This tool complements our Resilience Benchmarking Tool, focusing on individuals within an organisation as opposed to the organisation itself.

The latest version of the employee resilience tool can be found in the report, Employee Resilience Scale (EmpRes) Measurement Properties.

The Employee Resilience Scale: Technical Report is a report detailing the development of the employee resilience tool.
