We all play a role in constructing our workplace culture.
Maintaining a Culture of Psychological Safety enables full involvement in daily workplace activities: From meetings and collaborations to customer interactions and problem-solving, all employees feel empowered to contribute.
Employees who feel a sense of psychological safety are inclined to stay with a company. Why leave a workplace that respects, values, and fosters a safe environment? The significant costs tied to recruiting, hiring, and training new team members, among other expenses, make high employee turnover an unsustainable path for any successful business.
When environments lack psychological safety, employees often engage in 'code-switching' or 'masking' behaviors, where they feel compelled to alter their natural selves to conform or shield their true identities. Establishing psychological safety enables employees to authentically express themselves without the need for pretense or fear of retribution, and therefore eliminating the stress of conforming.
