Your ROI on Psychological Safety

Your ROI on Psychological Safety

Investing in Psychological Safety can yield significant financial returns.
Let’s look at the potential impact for a typical 10-person tech team in Europe with an average annual compensation of €35,000 per person.

Productivity Gains: €59,500 to €175,000 per year

Research shows that psychological safety can boost productivity by 17% to 50%. For our 10-person team, that equals:

  • 17% boost: €35,000 x 0.17 x 10 = €59,500
  • 50% boost: €35,000 x 0.50 x 10 = €175,000

Turnover Savings: €17,500 to €87,500 annually

Replacing a tech employee costs 50% to 250% of their annual salary. Building psychological safety can reduce turn-over by 50% reducing it from the 20% typical turn-over to 10%.
For a 10-person team that means retaining one more valuable employee:

  • At 50% of salary: €35,000 x 0.50 x 1 = €17,500
  • At 250% of salary: €35,000 x 2.50 x 1 = €87,500

Total Potential Benefit: €77,000 to €262,500 per year

The combined productivity gains and turnover cost savings for the 10-person team could total between €77,000 and €262,500 annually by implementing an effective psychological safety program.

Productivity + Retention Impact:

  • €59,500 + €17,500 = €77,000
  • €175,000 + €87,500 = €262,500

Additional Benefits of Higher Psychological Safety

Beyond the direct financial gains, psychological safety delivers:

  • Higher employee engagement and wellbeing
  • Increased innovation and creativity
  • Improved collaboration and knowledge sharing
  • Enhanced learning and skill development
  • Better customer satisfaction scores

The Cost of Inaction

On the flip side, lacking psychological safety leads to:

  • Stifled innovation and creativity
  • Lower employee engagement and commitment
  • Higher turnover and difficulty attracting talent
  • Toxic work environment and team dysfunction

The price of neglecting psychological safety is high. Can you afford the lost productivity, turnover expenses, missed opportunities, and negative cultural impact?
