Abstract:Previous research has pointed out the importance of the role of psychological safety for employees and organizations on how to learn and perform, and for workplace effectiveness. The current study attempted to extend the body of research on psychological safety by exploring the relationship between psychological safety and training transfer. In order to investigate this proposed relationship, training was developed, called the VR training. The training is a new type of intervention which aims to counter ethnic profiling and was implemented within the Amsterdam police department. Data was collected by distributing a survey. The results show that there was no statistical significant relation between psychological safety and the training transfer of the VR training. However, this result is mostly attributed to the insufficient sample size of only 32 police officers. Therefore, the study was unable to find the proposed relationship between the two concepts. Future research with a sufficient sample size should clarify if these concepts are indeed related.
