PROSPER – Benefits of a safe and positive work environment


  • Safe and positive work environment decreases stress factors: happy workers mean better work and better work is better for business. Several other benefits can be listed :
  • Less days of sickness: employees are less stressed and less vulnerable (mentally and physically);
  • Improved retention rates: people want to work where they feel valued, where they can perform at their best, and where they enjoy spending time. Higher retention rates in turn mean less money spent on recruiting, onboarding and training.
  • Increased likelihood of business success: employees that are given the confidence and space to express themselves and their ideas will more likely buy into company goals and success and strive to do more in order to achieve both individual and team goals.
  • Higher levels of innovation: the more people speak up their minds, the greater the number of ideas that will be brought to the table. People will also have the confidence to come up with more bold and daring thoughts knowing well that they will be encouraged to be creative.
  • A greater reputation vis-à-vis clients, possible new employees and the stakeholders generally speaking
