What is psychological safety?

Psychological safety relates to how easy a person feels included, comfortable and confident to contribute to their day-to-day tasks. You could think of this as the factors involved that will impact their productivity level.

At the moment, we don’t know what’s going on from one day to the next. It’s a very uncertain and worrying time to say the least. As a Managing Director, Manager or a person occupying a senior role, it is your job to protect and tend to the wellbeing of those you rely on.

Your employees need your support in every way possible.

The leaders in your business create a path for your team to follow.

It is you who is responsible for nurturing the overall reputation of the business, from little things such as encouraging healthy habits to providing somewhere for staff to turn to if they need.

This is what can make or break a community feel, a vital component of any business.

Workplace culture has always been important, but arguably never more so than now. It is believed that the decisions you make now will have a long-term reputational impact that may be hard to shake.

Demonstrating empathy and flexibility, prioritising workers’ mental health, and creating psychological safety can have a meaningful impact not only on employee experience but also on how the employer is seen going forward.
