Mental Resilience and Work Volition in Greek workers
Mental resilience is a concept that has been extensively studied in both Greek and foreign
literature. One of its key features is the adaptation of the individual despite the difficulties, while it is highly related to self-efficacy. On the other hand, the will to work is a concept that has been developed much more recently, but it is particularly important for the individual's career path and efficiency at work. In the research carried out in the context of this paper, these two variables are considered together for the first time. More specifically, the mental resilience and work volition on a sample consisting of 208 Greek workers is being investigated. The main finding of the research was the existence of a positive correlation between these two variables, although mental resilience is not a significant predictor of the work volition. On the contrary, the annual family
income, the possession of a Master's or PhD degree and the statement that they would choose the same profession again, have a positive effect on the work volition. In addition, the participants' levels of resilience are characterized as moderate to high, while the levels of work volition are characterized as moderate. In conclusion, the results reported in this study are the trigger for discussion and development of proposals and interventions that will maintain and enhance the mental resilience and the work volition of employees.
