Essi Systems Resiliency Map Helps Employers Build Strong and Healthy Workforces

Charts new strategies for enhancing personal health and overall performance

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. - May 5, 2009 - Essi Systems®, Inc., the expert in stress research and assessment services and solutions, introduced Resiliency Map® to help employees explore their resiliency demands, assets and current levels of functioning, and chart new strategies to improve personal health and overall performance.

"There's a growing epidemic of distressed employees in companies of all sizes and industries," said Resiliency Map author and Essi Systems CEO Esther M. Orioli. "In today's economy, businesses expect employees to do more with fewer resources. The pace, the pressures and the stress are having an impact on their ability to regenerate and grow. As a result, employees are suffering and companies are faltering.

"People need to develop skills that enhance the body's inherent ability to heal and regenerate after setbacks and failures to stay physically healthy, mentally strong, and lead productive lives in the workplace and at home."

According to Essi research, resiliency is the ability to rebound after disappointment or setbacks, be adaptable and flexible, and incorporate life experiences into new ways of thinking, feeling and acting. Each person's resiliency depends on several factors including the number and types of changes or demands a body must manage at one time; the attitudes and general beliefs about the world; and the skills learned and mastered for dealing with the environments.

Resiliency Map

Resiliency Map moves beyond stress and burnout to help employees understand their resiliency levels and targets areas for improvement. It is a comprehensive self-scoring resiliency assessment that measures resiliency factors on 21 scales; pinpoints strengths and vulnerabilities; and bolsters a "take charge" attitude that leads to better health and improved performance. Resiliency Map is extensively researched, norm tested and statistically reliable. It is confidential and secure - and a cost-effective way to reach every employee in an organization.

Resiliency Map includes a comprehensive questionnaire, scoring grid and interpretation guide. It is easy to use, confidential, and can be completed in less than an hour. Resiliency Map visually maps personal patterns, automatically ranks performance, and plots scores so progress can be measured over time.

"Constant and relentless pressures can wear us down, burn us or, or hurt us physically and mentally," said Ms. Orioli. "However, once we learn to use it, our resilient natures can buoy us during setbacks or times of difficulty, and bring us health and personal vitality throughout our lives."

Resiliency Map can be purchased directly on Essi Systems' website. For more information on Essi's products and services, contact Essi at or call (415) 252-8224.
