Feeling Safe at Work
“Do not ask too many questions! Make sure your manager believes 'you know it all'!"
"Don’t seek other colleagues for help! They might take that against you!”
As an undergraduate student, in my senior year in college, I remember hearing phrases like these as our University Professors tried to coach us on how we should behave when we arrive at the workplace. I am sure this was not the first time my colleagues and I hear those phrases. As kids, we were usually taught not to bother teachers with questions and teachers would usually flatter those who carried themselves smoothly with minimal distractions.
However, studies have proven that the culture our educational institutions and business organizations have been adopting, where people are afraid to express themselves freely is UNSAFE! Therefore, it has become an important goal within organizations to create an environment where employees not only feel safe physically as well as psychologically.
