Sanna Malinen – VISION ZERO SUMMIT 2019
Building organisational and employee resilience for severe disruptions
The range and scale of crises affecting organisations, from natural disasters to economic downturns, have resulted in an increased interest in organisational adaptability. This talk will discuss how to build adaptive capacity in organisations. This capacity, also known as resilience, can be described as the ability to survive or even thrive in the face of adversity and uncertainty. Drawing from disaster management experience, this talk will focus on key processes, including learning and collaboration that have been shown to strengthen both organisational and employee resilience.
