Human beings are the heart of organizational performance
Psychosocial Risk Management: Understanding and taking action
Psychosocial risks impact the physical and mental health of employees. They are linked to employment conditions, work organization, and professional relationships. All companies, regardless of their size or sector, are affected. Social partners and authorities are working together to prevent these risks. But what exactly do they entail? What role does the employer play in their prevention? How can employees be protected?
These risks lie at the intersection of the individual and their professional environment and come in various forms:
- Stress: Arising from the pressure of meeting professional expectations.
- Internal Violence: Serious conflicts, emotional or sexual harassment, may originate from colleagues.
- External Violence: External parties unrelated to the company may assault employees.
- Burnout Syndrome: Resulting from excessive workloads.
These psychosocial risks can combine and exacerbate each other. For instance, stress and internal conflicts can create widespread tension within the company.

Why inclusion matters ?
Neither utopian nor demagogic, inclusion involves the practical application of the principle of equality of human rights. This key principle ensures the balance of our modern societies.

Why do organizations struggle to implement inclusion, which benefits both employees and employers?
Various forms of harassment and discrimination pose obstacles that need to be overcome to promote organizational growth while preserving the integrity of all employees.
No sector is spared from this scourge, whether it be private or public organizations, NGOs, schools, or universities. It weakens society as a whole.
