Work-life balance is more than a fad. Several recent reports suggest that stress and other behavioral/mental health issues (opioids crisis, suicide, etc.) in the workplace must be addressed in order to recruit and retain employees. If apprentices/students are to thrive in today's seemingly "always connected" world, management associations, labor unions, and owners must assist these apprentices/students in developing effective coping strategies. This presentation will discuss the importance of resilience in sustaining one's career as it relates to action-based research.
