Creating and maintaining safe spaces
A third of all employees don’t feel like they belong at their organisation, and over a quarter wouldn’t feel confident raising any concerns with their manager, according to WorkBuzz survey data.
In real terms, if yours is a 1000-employee organisation, that’s 330 people who just don’t feel an affinity with your workplace. To feel a sense of belonging and that we can operate at our best, we all need to feel safe.
With many organisations working to improve their diversity and inclusion efforts, having a safe space helps employees feel seen, included and protected, resulting in a positive employee experience and an engaged workforce.
In this one-hour webinar Ian Barrow, WorkBuzz Client Services Director, shines a light on safe spaces.
- The importance of safe spaces and the role leaders play in creating them
- How to implement safe spaces and how it might feel to colleagues
- Creating psychological safety in a team environment
- What this looks like on a day-to-day basis
It’s a session that will help you reflect on your own need for safe spaces, and will offer guidance on where to start in your organisation.
