Mental Wellbeing and Psychological Safety
Employers have a responsibility to manage workplace health and safety while planning and implementing responses to the Covid 19 pandemic. This includes both physical and mental health. Leaders have an important role
to play in workplace psychological safety and yet, may not know how to identify and manage psychological safety risks.
How do we create training opportunities that are truly transformational? From a workplace perspective, a transactional approach to training can be both a waste of money
and even damaging in the long term. When budgets are tight, one of the early sacrifices is often the
training budget. Training is sometimes seen as a nice to have, rather than a need. Part of the problem
is that training is often transactional. People go into a training room, they learn skills, they go back to work and are expected to adopt the new skills often in isolation, and retention is mired by the busyness of their role and other distractions.
