This Question of the Week comes from the Workplace Experience group on LinkedIn.

What kinds of challenges are corporations dealing with—and strategies being design to combat against—psychological workplace injury*? I have read a number of articles, surveys, legal amendments, and theoretical papers, but I have yet to come across any practical sources. This is why I am seeking genuine case studies surrounding psychological injury management. 

So what are some of the factors holding back workplace psychological injury management? Are there current strategies that are attempting to tackle these issues? What more can be done to improve psychological wellbeing in the workplace?
