Develop a Transformative Culture
The current method of treating employees has failed. Only 30% of employees worldwide are engaged in their jobs, which is insufficient in today’s fast-paced world. Psychological safety is a well-established concept that can help explain why your employees are engaged. Psychological safety, like engagement, is unquestionably an essential organizational concept that deserves to be highlighted.
It’s time to consider what psychological safety looks like in your organization and whether it’s time to allow employees to be their best, most engaged selves at work.
Self-Awareness At The Workplace
Your company should strive to hire and develop self-aware employees. When your workforce excels at identifying, managing, and productively expressing their thoughts and emotions, your business functions will improve significantly. Employers would benefit from providing assistance and tools to help their employees develop self-awareness. Not only will their teams become more responsive to their needs, but they will also be better prepared to deal with future disruptions.
