Workplaces with high psychosocial safety...
...are more innovative, productive, and profitable. They have lower absences, turnover, and injuries.
Workplaces with a high psychosocial safety climate have workers who are stress-free, safe and thriving.
Psychosocial safety climate is the shared belief held by workers that their psychological safety and wellbeing is protected and supported by senior management.
Psychosocially safe workplaces create an environment of mutual trust, support and respect, where your workm8tes feel personally safe to bring their whole selves to work. They feel safe to speak freely, share their ideas, ask questions, raise concerns, or mistakes without fear of being punished or humiliated.
As a result, your workm8tes become more engaged in their work, more committed to their workplace and perform better.
