Stressful situations, performance pressure, and setbacks are part of contemporary organizational life. The dynamic nature of technological advances and globalisation of business leads to tougher competitive pres- sures and constant change. People‘s responses to these challenging cir- cumstances vary widely. Some bounce back and adapt to increasing chal- lenges and adversity, others‘ healthy functioning is significantly impaired. Even though resilience is recognised as a crucial issue in the workplace, the rates of new cases of work-related stress and depression have remained broadly flat for more than 10 years. Resilience research within Applied Psychology typically focuses on the psychological domain of a person‘s functioning. This means that also resilience trainings or interventions focus on only one area. The present paper aims to build a comprehensive con- ceptualization of workplace resilience ultimately to assist in informing tar- geted intervention and in developing a model to move the research area forward as a whole. A cross-disciplinary understanding of and approach to individual resilience in the workplace would allow to better understand the mechanism of why some people bounce back from adverse events where- as others‘ well-being declines. We propose a resilience framework with an- tecedents considering psychological (cognitive and emotional) and physio- logical correlates (cardiovascular, gastrointestinal and metabolic).
