“Our staff travel to vulnerable communities worldwide, and Thrive’s 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 Coyle, Global HR Director, Relief International
