Personal development key to productivity for employees

Filed under: Business Continuity — Jonathan on October 3, 2013

A number of recent workshops on personal resilience and managing pressure has seen many employees have to change their working practices, which has led to them having more time to work instead of travelling and taking part in ineffective meetings and planning.

Those looking to enter business continuity jobs and other positions in their respective industries should find that they perform more efficiently than their predecessors, should the workshops be introduced by their future employers.

One attendee said:

“This is the best training course I’ve ever attended. The changes I’ve made since the workshop have helped me restructure my working month and create a more efficient routine for how I manage my time. This has in turn made the work schedule of my entire team more efficient.”

Stress combat specialists Managing Pressure and wellness firm The Tonic host the workshops. They emphasise certain topics, including the creation of optimally performing teams and strong management energy levels, with a particular focus on changes that are able to be introduced immediately.

Cathy Connolly, responsible for commissioning the workshops, said that the company is a busy one and like any other business, has to contend with challenges and pressures. Giving employees additional hours to pause and reflect has reportedly proved to be invaluable.

Jeff Archer, the director of Tonic, said that the workshops offer employees a chance to breathe in the presence of pressure and implement actions and strategies that can positively affect both the short-term and long-term. Managing Pressure’s Bruce Hoverd added that the workshops help staff to re-evaluate strategies.
