The global pandemic taught us the importance of the well-being of our workforce, both inside and outside of our workplaces.
Today’s organizations are seeing greater levels of complexity as our workforces span across five generations, with each having a different communication style. Adding to this complexity is the increased use of a contingent workforce (contractor, temporary staffing) to supplement labor strategies, creating additional gaps and barriers in critical areas such as communications. This is creating a greater need to further define the resources and boundaries needed for an effective risk management system in a joint-employer environment.
The stress placed on today’s business systems continues as technology has advanced, supply chains are interrupted, and standardized schedules are disrupted. Our former, transactional-based methods for mental health and psychological safety were proven ineffective under the pressure of the pandemic. In the past, these methods provided help and resources but didn’t build supporting networks within employee communities that prioritize relationships and interpersonal connections.
This presentation will show professionals how to integrate the socially transformative elements of psychological safety within our work systems while finding a unique opportunity to advance the benefits of reducing risk and error in the workplace alongside greater business outcomes, both of which are needed for a safe and productive workplace in the future.
In this webinar, you will learn:
- The history of and current views of psychological safety in the workplace
- Mindfulness, relationships, trust, and human error
- The role and importance of safety networks within our risk/safety systems
