For organizations to grow and sustain in a rapidly changing, diverse world, psychologically healthy workplaces are critically important. Over the last decade, interest in high performing teams, trust building, culture change, and person-environment fit has grown. Concomitantly, a significant increase in incidences of workplace bullying, violence, and burnout have been found to correlate with an imbalanced focus on organizational profits, structures, and bureaucracy. When these experiences take precedence over the ways people are socialized, managed, and developed, organizations can be faced with difficult challenges.
The New York State Psychological Association Division of Organization, Consulting and Work Psychology (OCW) believes it can play an integral role developing psychologically healthy workplaces by including psychologists in these conversations. Together, we can share experiences, best practices, and co-created solutions. OCW has focused on negative outcomes of psychologically unhealthy workplaces. In 2015, we are proceeding not only with discussion of negative workplace symptoms, but also with how we must think and act within our organizations and on their behalf to make them healthier organizations.
