A Randomized Controlled Pilot Trial Investigating the Impact of a Workplace Resilience Program During a Time of Significant Organizational Change

Objective: The aim of this study was to investigate the effectiveness of a short-term resilience intervention as measured by the Resilience at Work (RAW) scale.
Methods: A 5-week resilience program was implemented with 28 volunteers and assessed by the 20-item RAW scale. The scale was administered electronically and participants were match paired into either a treatment or control group. Statistical analysis was conducted using a 2?×?2 group (Treatment, control) × time (pre, post) analysis of variance with repeated measures.
Results: Postintervention time point RAW total score was significantly greater in the treatment group (P?<?0.01) and statistical significance was also achieved for four of the seven subscales.
Conclusion: Employee resilience can be improved via specific educational and skills training requiring a total time commitment of just 5?hours, making this intervention feasible for most working environments.
