An Insight into How The Psychological Safety Structure of Employees in the Organization Generates Positive Valence

Ruoyuan Tang


Human resources have always been the most precious possessions and irreplaceable. The level of psychological security of employees in an organization has a non-negligible impact on the output of employees in the organization. Increasing employees' organizational identification is a compulsory lesson for leaders. Employees who identify with the organization's culture, vision and mission will make them feel more strongly bonded together and will accordingly stimulate organizational citizenship behavior (OCB). A positive psychological safety framework is not only linked to output, but also to employee performance, so that employees can use their own initiative to create more new motivation, and secondly, employees will not be afraid to make mistakes, fearing that they will be afraid to challenge new things and try new ideas because of making mistakes.
