Maslow’s hierarchy of needs includes safety as a basic need, and this is true in the workplace as well. Psychological safety is directly related to the culture of a company. No matter how large or small your organization is, whether it is a startup, a large corporation, a nonprofit organization, or a government institution, establishing safety will reap enormous benefits. 

Teams are better equipped to leverage the skills and talents of each team member when they feel free to openly discuss their ideas and values with one another. This is especially relevant when those opinions differ from the rest of the team. These groups are more likely to take the initiative and think critically about every circumstance. The team is then able to be creative and come up with unique, practical ideas as a result.
