Short description of contents:
Purpose: During times of constant changes and impelling deadlines, organizations ask for employees capable of facing the exposure to frequent stress and overwhelming job demands, which, if prolonged, can result in burnout. Scientific literature presents three main psychological constructs which at different stages can prevent, manage, and help to recover from burnout. They are: grit, resilience and recovery in the workplace. Bridging these three constructs together, the present study introduces an ad hoc training, named “GRRR”, that has been developed with the aim of decreasing exhaustion levels in participants. Methodology: A sample of employees (n=44) from two organizations operating in the private sector followed the GRRR one-day training workshop. After training employees completed a notebook of development in relation to the workshop aims. Participants also wrote a quantitative diary at the beginning and after training. Results: Preliminary analyses partially supported our hypotheses. Overall, the training improved employee well-being levels. We predicted and found that grit was positively associated with increasing resilience and recovery; and all three constructs were associated with decreased levels of employee exhaustion. Finally, we were able to establish a causality among the development of the three constructs: grit as a personality trait was associated with resilience development, and resilience with the learning of new recovery coping strategies. Limitations: Similar to several WOP studies, the present research lacks objective measures. Practical Implications: Implications for companies consist in a new evidence-based training programme specifically designed for dealing with burnout and exhaustion. Originality: The present study fills a gap in research by combining grit, resilience and recovery and by applying a quasi-experimental approach for the development of such constructs.
