Building a Culture of Psychological Safety

Support the Mental Health of your Employees

A work environment where employees can show up as their authentic selves without fear of negative consequences by their managers or their peers requires a culture of psychological safety. Fostering this culture in an organization allows individuals to feel supported enough to discuss their mental health openly. According to Aetna International, 87% of workers are worried that stress could affect their ability to work, but only 60% of employees have ever talked about their mental health with a manager or co-worker.

How can we develop a culture where stigmas are broken down and employees feel supported?

Managers set the mood and tone of work environments – wielding the power to make or break the development of a culture of well-being. Without psychological safety in the workplace, it’s hard for employees to be at their best.  Watch this discussion with Carolyn Thayer-Azoff, Sr. Director of Mental Health at Aduro, and Rosette Cataldo, VP of Performance & Talent Strategy at Workhuman, to learn the importance of building a culture of psychological safety to support employee mental health, and the impacts this can have on the overall productivity, retention, healthcare costs, and absenteeism.
