In today’s fast-paced and demanding work environment, it’s more important than ever for organisations to prioritise their employees’ mental health and well-being. Leaders must understand the importance of a psychological safe workplace and have the capability and capacity to implement the necessary strategies. The benefits of psychological safety in the workplace are numerous. Research has shown that when employees feel safe, they are more likely to be engaged, creative and productive and experience lower levels of stress and burnout. This, in turn, leads to increased job satisfaction and a stronger sense of loyalty to the organisation. In this session we will explore the critical aspects necessary for a psychologically safe workplace, and discuss how to measure, build and maintain a healthy culture.
