As presented to the American Society for Engineering Management's IAC conference in Virginia Beach this October, here are the four factors of the Workplace Resilience Inventory. A full instrument will be released soon--most likely in early 2015. I'll put updates here.
I'm hearing too much about Ebola and today the morning news topic & ticker was "Ebola Watch." I would like to pose the question to you: Ebola Watch or Apple Watch? Please take part in this important fall election issue.
I'm finishing the update to my 1998 resilience scales. These were presented at the 2014 American Society for Engineering Management conference in October. I'm working on a journal submission containing the methodological content and results and hoping for a 2015 publication.
The factor structure changed significantly from the 1998 version, going from six factors to four. Those four factors will be initially released at ASEM and then posted here in an update. The resulting Workplace Resilience Inventory (WRI) will be released for use once the instrument has been packaged and reviewed by our intellectual property staff at WMU. This is one of the first resilience instruments developed for workers in more general workplaces, rather than mental health patients in clinical settings, which is where the bulk of the research is located.
