Due to rapid technological changes and new working methods, the workload of employees is increasing. More stress, less energy. This also worries the employers. Developing psychosocial resilience and deploying talents in the right place are essential in a sustainable personnel policy. How does an employer or manager recognize possible signals and causes of overload? Which approach increases the mental resilience of the employees, taking into account personality, age and status?
