APA Releases Results From 2023 Work in America Survey

A new survey from the American Psychological Association (APA) revealed that 19% of workers say their workplace is very or somewhat toxic, and those who reported a toxic workplace were more than three times as likely to have said they have experienced harm to their mental health at work than those who report a healthy workplace (52% vs. 15%).

The results of APA’s 2023 Work in America Survey confirmed that psychological well-being is a very high priority for workers. On Aug. 23, the SIOP Work Smart Series will offer The Impact of Artificial Intelligence on Employee Psychological Safety, which will look at psychological safety as it relates to artificial intelligence. SIOP is also addressing these and other topics on this list with its 2023 SIOP Top 10 Work Trends, including:

  • Trend #4: Ensuring inclusive environments and cultures
  • Trend #5: Reshaping work to address employee’s mental health
  • Trend #8: Psychological safety in the workplace

Additional results of the survey are grouped into the Surgeon General’s Five Workplace Essentials for workplace mental health and well-being:

  • Protection from harm (including security and safety)
  • Connection and community (including social support and belonging)
  • Work-life harmony (including autonomy and flexibility)
  • Mattering at work (including dignity and meaning)
  • Opportunity for growth (including learning and accomplishment)

Join the conversation on the SIOP LinkedIn page as SIOP members and others discuss these important workplace topics.

The 2023 Work in America Survey was conducted online by The Harris Poll among 2,515 employed adults nationwide between April 17 and April 27, 2023.
