Is your team Psychologically Safe? North East based company Drummond HR launches the first results from reporting tool which measures and analyses the fundamental components of Psychological Safety.
World Mental Health Day raises awareness of mental health issues and enables us to advocate against social stigma, the day provides an opportunity for companies and organisations to highlight the fantastic work they are already doing but also to introduce new activities, targeting resources where they are going to be most significant in value.
Team Works, launched under the new Wellbeing Works brand is an innovative, validated diagnostic reporting tool that measures and reports on Team Psychological Safety. It has been the subject of a five-year research project validated by Newcastle University, it is the subject of a peer reviewed article in the European Journal of Occupational Rehabilitation, 2018.
Peter Davidson, Chairman said: “With my professional background in Corporate Insurance, Risk Management and Non-Executive Roles, including Health and Social Housing, I have full appreciation of the importance of creating a workplace environment that is safe for all colleagues.”
Hamish Moore, Managing Director said: “We believe at Wellbeing Works that for teams to function effectively they need to have a high level of Psychological Safety. Staff should be able to hold and express an alternative opinion. It should be safe to ask for help. Work demands, skills and capacity should be in balance. Work relations should be constructive and supportive. It should be safe to be in a minority of one. Managers and Leaders actively protect and enhance the mental health of their teams.”
“Team Works has enabled us to improve staff wellbeing levels significantly, enhance our staff retention levels and reduce our operating costs. We saved £600K in the first year”
Ian Seddon, Assistant Director of Facilities Management, Manchester Metropolitan University
