Lack of psychological safety is the primary driver of dissatisfaction at work, employee burnout, and consequently, one of the main reasons behind the Great Resignation.

Organizations that understand the importance of psychological safety and prioritize it at work enjoy a 50% increase in productivity, a 76% increase in employee engagement, and a 27% decrease in turnover (Accenture). And the benefits don’t end here: promoting and nurturing a safe work environment positively affects your employer brand and attracts sought-after talent. After all, everyone wants to work in a team where they feel included, have room to develop and grow, and aren’t afraid to challenge the status quo and innovate.


People don’t leave jobs, they leave toxic work environments.

While we all acknowledge the value of safe and healthy team dynamics, the grim reality is that only about one-quarter of employees reported feeling psychologically safe at work (Workhuman). How can we turn the situation around?

It all starts with understanding what psychological safety is and isn’t.
