Engagement is insufficient at work. Anyone can be engaged in their work, love their job; but it is a completely different matter to be engaged with the company, the team, the purpose. The Commitment and Resilience Index™ enables you to support employees in well-being at work. It does this by showing you how to measure resilience and commitment, identifying areas where there is a need to support emotional engagement, and reduce work related sources of negative stress.
Why do you need to support and engage employees, and reduce stress?
Because stress is responsible for high levels of sickness absence. And emotional engagement is linked to performance, enthusiasm, commitment and resilience. Anything you can do to improve levels of emotional engagement and stress will improve the bottom line for your business.
And because as an employer you have a duty of care to all employees; if you fail in this duty you will be at risk of litigation. Compensation payouts for stress – which can include stress caused by increased workload – can typically be £110,000.

The Commitment and Resilience Index™ considers commitment as constituting a number of essential parts, namely the individual’s emotional engagement and commitment to:
It is more than an engagement survey. Employers have a duty of care towards their employees. The Commitment Index is designed to measure emotional engagement, and be in line with the HSE Standards for the management of stress in the workplace.
The Commitment and Resilience Index provides identifiable areas of immediate risk of danger to employees and risk to the employer (litigation) and is therefore a early warning risk mitigation tool which protects employee and employer.
This intervention is most effective with targeted groups.
