The Resilience Questionnaire™

Assessing Candidate Resilience

Almost three quarters of HR professionals value resilience as an integral part of candidate assessment, yet all too often it’s left out of the selection process.

Even more worrying, research indicates that there is a direct correlation between top talent losses and stress, with a recent study reporting that 90% of leaders were let go due to physical or mental conditions that impaired their leadership effectiveness.

Resilience has long been a buzzword in the HR and business arena. As we continue to operate in a VUCA (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous) environment, having a workforce that is able to adapt positively and effectively to change is increasingly becoming a business imperative.

Long established as a tool for developing individual resilience, The Resilience Questionnaire™ can now be used in assessment for recruitment or selection.

The questionnaire focuses on eight aspects of an individual’s psychological resilience (sometimes referred to as ‘mental toughness’) – important patterns of thinking and behaviour that affect their ability to respond positively to setbacks, challenge and change. Hosted on a&dc’s online assessment platform, Apollo™, the tool can be easily integrated into your assessment activities to help you build a resilient workforce.
