When you recruit someone for a new role in a new location, you may be left with questions. Are they ready for the job? Will they settle ok? How well will they handle setbacks? Do they have the support they need?
A change of both job and home can be hard. It can be harder still to predict how someone will fare. But a person’s ability to adapt or bounce back can be developed – it first just needs to be understood.
Our Resilience Questionnaire & Consultation is an evidence-based approach to understand and grow a person’s resilience. The individual answers a set of questions to assess various aspects of their resilience. They then meet with a psychological practitioner to discuss coping strategies and receive advice on reducing risks and cultivating resilience.
Note: we do not provide a statement on an individual’s psychological fitness to travel
✅ Basic: a 45 minute consultation
✅ Full: a 60 minute consultation, after which the individual receives a short report outlining what was discussed. With consent, this is sent to the organisation too.
📍 Venue: Online or face-to-face in London or Nairobi
👥 Perfect for … anyone between deployments, undertaking a new role in a low or medium-risk location, or going on a short-term deployment for the first time
“Our staff travel to vulnerable communities worldwide, and these resilience questionnaires are an important early step in this process. The reviews help our team develop coping mechanisms, build resilience, and prepare for the challenges they might face. All this means they can do what they do to the best of their abilities.” – Joan, Global HR Director at Relief International
“We highly recommend Thrive Worldwide and their psychological health services, which we have used in support of selection of new staff and in maintaining support for serving mission staff. We have found Thrive clinicians to be experienced in field settings, and they conduct sessions with care and an unhurried approach. Their reports help us clarify support needs and assess the suitability of candidates for service with us. We appreciate their focus on ‘thriving’ and would say we see this intention is demonstrated in their approach in working with us in the UK as well as our staff serving abroad.” – Mission Aviation Fellowship
