Answer: A healthy psychological work environment is very important to ensure job satisfaction and well-being in the workplace. A healthy psychological work environment means that there is a balance between the demands made on the employee and the resources and skills he or she possesses to meet what is required. If there is imbalance, there is an increased risk of stress, conflict, dissatisfaction, more sick leave, etc.
In many cases, problems associated with the psychological work environment may in fact be connected to entirely different influences, for example, a poor indoor climate or other adverse physical conditions. In order to resolve issues related to the psychological work environment, it is therefore important in the initial stages to identify all potential contributory factors.
