Employee Psychological Safety
Who says, “what’s going on with an employee isn’t a work-related issue?” According to the Psychological Wellbeing at the Workplace International Journal, “psychological wellbeing is related to both work and personal life outcomes.” Psychological safety is paramount if an HR department wants to open up the lines of communication and build trust with its employees. Your organization experiences silent productivity loss over time when your employees are afraid to come forward with issues concerning their psychological wellbeing.
What Can Your Business Do To Improve Psychological Wellbeing
The suicide rate among the US working-age population increased by 34 percent during 2000-2016. How is your HR department addressing psychological related issues? Your business has to be willing to discuss psychological wellbeing and have a system in place to address these issues with your employees.
Why Is It Hard For Employees To Share Their True Thoughts
The best way to get your team to be candid about their wellbeing or have a discussion about their psychological health is through communication. Most employees find it hard to discuss the psychological issues they’re experiencing because of the stigma behind mental health-related matters. If you remove the stigma by being open with your employees about their psychological health, you can help with issues that can impact their performance.
