What is psychologically safety?

Research has described psychological safety as an employee’s ‘perception of the consequences of taking interpersonal risk’ (p. 23, Edmundson & Lei, 2014). 


Depending on how employees perceive the environment and the quality of the relationships around them, they may open up and share innovative or critical ideas, or they may keep them to themselves, worried and scared of being scalded by those around and above them.


An organisation that prizes psychological safety is one which learns from failures, sees higher engagement from employees, shares ideas across teams and benefits from greater levels of creativity in the face of problems. This means that employees can verbalise difficulties around workload, priorities and other relationships, therefore minimising the impact of workplace stressors on poor mental health whilst maintaining productivity (Swendiman et al., 2019).


Crucially, psychological safe workplaces are not “soft”. Recognised by the likes of Google, Pixar and Spotify, psychologically safe workplaces are honest, trusting, adaptable and ultimately, productive.

What does It Involve?

Nothing we do with businesses is of the shelf. Instead, we work with you to understand your needs and expectations before designing any interventions. 


We’re also as eager as you to demonstrate ROI and make a meaningful difference. Therefore, we are keen to work with you to define the relevant data points that would best represent a psychologically safe working environment within your organisation’s unique culture. We will then use these data points as a baseline and check in on them throughout and at the end of any intervention.


Delivery of the interventions themselves are flexible. For some, guidance is all that’s needed once we have a baseline understanding of your organisation, where interventions are led by managers and supervisors. For others, it may involve a range of workshops or coaching sessions with key members of staff. 


Our service really is flexible and shaped around you and your organisation.
