Is psychological safety and resilience important for investment employees?

Stockholm School of Economics (SSE) initiates a new research collaboration with Norges Bank Investment Management (NBIM) to investigate the importance of psychological safety and resilience among employees in the fund.

SSE and NBIM have initiated a research collaboration to delve deeper into the importance of psychological safety and resilience among investment employees. This collaboration brings together leading experts in the field, including Professor Martin Carlsson-Wall, Director of the Center for Sports and Business at SSE, and Professor Amy Edmondson from Harvard Business School, a pioneer in the study of psychological safety and author of the book “The Fearless Organization: Creating Psychological Safety in the Workplace for Learning, Innovation, and Growth”.

The research aims to understand the mechanisms behind psychological safety and resilience among investment employees and how the implementation of sports psychological principles may contribute to strengthening the fund’s performance culture. We seek to develop a deeper understanding of how these factors impact the work environment and performance within the organization.

“We are pleased that Martin Carlsson-Wall from Stockholm School of Economics (SSE) and Amy Edmondson from Harvard Business School will conduct this project. Their expertise will enhance our understanding of psychological safety and resilience. This will provide us with valuable insights that will then form the basis for targeted programs to improve the work environment and performance in our organization,” says Nicolai Tangen, Chief Executive Officer at Norges Bank Investment Management.
