This project will increase awareness and understanding amongst small employers of the importance of organisational resilience; develop the skills and capacity to implement it with five employers and develop an approach, which enables the effective implementation of organisational resilience across the sector, which can be sustained beyond the life of this project. 

The project will develop learning materials and toolkits to BS6500 standards, and pilot these in the sector.

After the project, the gap analysis tool will be freely available for organisations to map their resilience and identify training tools to address the gaps.  The project will have piloted organisations adopting the 'BeResilient' framework and will share its learning on best practice in doing so.

  • BeResilient framework and ‘health-check’ toolkit
  • 56 leaders with improved knowledge and skills of organisational resilience and the BeResilient Framework
  • 6 companies adopting the BeResilient Framework
  • 10 awareness courses, with 250 in attendance
  • An improved evidence base upon which the BeResilient Framework can be further developed and implemented.
