Join us for the CIPD Behavioural Science at Work Conference on 1 October 2019, The Hallam Conference Centre, London

Behavioural science gives us a profound understanding of how employees think and what makes them tick. By using the latest behavioural insights in the workplace, HR and L&D professionals can get under the skin of their employees to find out how best to support and develop them.

Without an in-depth understanding of how human beings think, feel, behave or communicate, we can’t provide the necessary support and development opportunities in the workplace.

However, by leveraging a robust understanding of human psychology, motivations, and behaviours, we can design roles and initiatives that are more brain-friendly, and cater to the real needs of the people in our organisations.

But what does this really look like? How can we generate tangible results? How can we communicate the value of behavioural science to get buy-in from stakeholders?

The CIPD Behavioural Science at Work Conference will pull together the latest multi-disciplinary research from experts in cognitive and occupational psychology to behavioural economics and organisational behaviour. Learn from specialists and practitioners to leverage a strategic competitive advantage and drive a culture that optimises brain performance and maximises engagement across your organisation.
