Originally formed in 2014, Applied Resilience started life as an innovative approach by two local authorities seeking to balance the growing importance of emergency planning and business continuity with the on-going pressures on budgets.
We've grown since those early days, and are now proud to support businesses, schools and public sector organisations with short and long-term resilience services.
APPLIED RESILIENCE IS A PUBLIC SERVICE MUTUAL (PSM)
We're the first PSM in the UK to deliver resilience services - we're innovators. PSMs are organisations that have left the formal public sector but continue to deliver public services, aim to have a positive social impact, and have a significant degree of employee ownership, influence or control in the way the organisation is run. The government is fully committed to supporting PSMs, with several studies (and our own experience!) showing that an engaged workforce is a happier and more productive workforce. This results in better quality services, more satisfied customers and ultimately better value for taxpayers' money.
Our team members come from a range of different backgrounds across the resilience world, but we all share a genuine enthusiasm for creating practical, innovative services for our clients. We think the diversity of our experience is a real benefit for our customers, because it means we can share and apply best practice across sectors, and continue to learn each and every day.
