How Perceived Laboral Security Affects Productivity and Well-being

Perceived security in the workplace is essential for the well-being and productivity of employees. When workers feel safe and protected, they can better focus on their tasks and be more creative and innovative.

On the other hand, a sense of insecurity can lead to stress, anxiety, and fear, which negatively affects their performance. How is your company doing in this regard?

Some of the effects of perceived lack of security in the workplace include:

  • Decreased concentration and attention
  • Increased levels of stress and anxiety
  • Lower motivation and commitment to the company
  • Higher absenteeism and staff turnover
  • Deterioration of interpersonal relationships
  • Reduction in creativity and innovation


These factors can significantly impact productivity and the quality of work, which in turn affects the company's results.

What companies can do to improve the sense of security

To improve perceived security in the workplace, companies can implement a series of measures:

Implement clear safety policies and procedures

Establish well-defined safety policies and procedures and communicate them effectively to all employees. This includes emergency plans, safety protocols, first aid training, etc.

Invest in safety infrastructure and equipment

Ensure the workplace has the necessary infrastructure and equipment to guarantee employee safety, such as alarm systems, surveillance cameras, fire extinguishers, and proper signage.

Also consider the work furniture and its arrangement to avoid accidents and have a functional layout. This entry can help you: How to improve office safety by organizing space and furniture

Foster a safety culture

Promote an organizational culture that prioritizes the safety and well-being of employees. This involves visible leadership, ongoing training, recognition of safety efforts, and genuine commitment from the entire organization.

Listen and respond to employee concerns

Establish open communication channels so employees can express their safety concerns and suggestions. Respond to these concerns promptly and effectively.

Offer support and wellness programs

Implement employee support and wellness programs, such as counseling services, relaxation and wellness activities, and personal and professional development opportunities.


By implementing these measures, companies can significantly improve their perception of security, resulting in greater productivity, commitment, and overall well-being in the workplace.
