Psychological climate

The psychological climate of an organisation is based around individual perceptions of an organisation and its people. Individual perceptions differ according to their status and which part of an organisation they work in, but they are always their own perceptions based on their experience of working in an organisation.

The B628 course book suggests there are a number of factors that make the most important contributions to psychological climate:

  • Leadership
  • Facilitation and support
  • Professional and organisational esprit
  • Conflict and ambiguity
  • Regulations
  • Organisation and pressure
  • Job variety
  • Challenge
  • Autonomy
  • Work-group cooperation
  • Friendliness and warmth
  • Job standards
