New Resilience Self-Assessment Tool for businesses through Resilience First

Launched at the end of January, our strategic partner, Resilience First, the global business resilience network, has created a Resilience Self-Assessment Tool which enables businesses to measure and promote their organisation’s resilience.


You can explore how it works here.

Resilience First is a Race to Resilience Partner Initiative and the tool will play a critical part in understanding a business’s resilience by allowing it to benchmark against industry peers, track resilience performance and identify areas of strength and weakness.

The Resilience Self-Assessment Tool was developed with support from leading experts, Arup and EY. Dr Paul Robertson, UKI Resilience Lead, EY, said, ‘Understanding resilience exposures is a crucial first step in building a more capable, future-ready, organisation. Working with Resilience First to co-create this assessment has reaffirmed our commitment to supporting all organisations on their resilience journey.’

The Resilience Self-Assessment Tool is one of the many resources provided to Resilience First Members and use of the tool is one of the pledges the network is asking of businesses when they join its Race to Resilience campaign.

Simon Collins, Chair, Resilience First, said, ‘As resilience becomes a recognised priority, I recommend our members to embrace this new Resilience First self-assessment tool which will allow you to understand better your organisation’s resilience capacity as well as identify areas for improvement.  In the long term, we plan to create an accreditation scheme for resilience.’
