Psychological climate in the team

Psychological climate in the team
 
Working conditions in the team have a huge impact on productivity, success of interaction, satisfaction with the working process and its results. In addition to direct influence factors, such as wage level, geographical location, workplace comfort, etc., there are also indirect influence factors. The socio-psychological climate (SPC) in the team is one of them.
As for the socio-psychological climate in the team, a certain set of characteristics is usually implied here. For example, it includes the set of all socio-psychological attitudes of the group, that is, characteristics related to emotional factors, the level of conflict, the distribution of roles, etc. Another important part of the SPC is the dominant psychological mood of the group, which is characterized by stability. Models of relationships and defining characteristics of the state of the team qualify as individual components of the socio-psychological climate in the team.
In practice, indirect indicators of the atmosphere in the group are as follows: the level of employee turnover and labor productivity, adherence to the work regime, the number of claims and complaints coming from employees and customers, etc.
In today's business environment, the normalization of SPC in a team is one of the primary tasks of management. A favorable psychological climate in the team positively affects most business indicators, stimulates the formation of organizational culture and positively affects the involvement of employees.
A study of the psychological climate in the team is closely connected with personnel assessment in general and the study of control systems. Personnel assessment is often incomplete without measuring the indicators of socio-psychological climate, as emotional characteristics are extremely important in the process of forming the corporate environment.
In addition to the standard set of tools - questionnaires, interviews and focus groups – methods of SPC research have techniques such as experimentation, observation and modeling in their arsenal. These methods are often combined to obtain a more complete picture of the state of the socio-psychological climate in the team.
The role of the psychological climate in the team can hardly be overestimated. A full-fledged study of it allows managers to obtain valuable information that will help them make balanced managerial decisions. In addition, the socio-psychological climate in the team directly affects business efficiency, employee productivity, etc.
