Unlocking growth through behaviour change

The Behavioural Scientists is an innovative consultancy that uses behavioural science research to develop a deep understanding of how people truly think, feel and behave. Using evidence-based insights we provide tailored solutions to drive success for our clients.

What is behavioural science?

Behavioural science is the study of human behaviour and decision-making. By understanding how and why people behave in a certain way, we can design processes and create environments that lead to better outcomes. To understand and explain human behaviour, behavioural science draws on evidence from a range of disciplines including psychology, sociology, economics and others. Our experts work with you to apply behavioural science and tailor solutions that align with your organisations needs.

Our offer to you

Our team of experts can help you to incorporate behavioural science into your organisation's operations. We do this through a process of behavioural analysis and the development of bespoke solutions to achieve your strategic outcomes. We work with you to understand your goals and objectives and then use evidence-based strategies to maximise outcomes, supporting sustainable  growth. We pride ourselves on providing ethical, high quality, and bespoke consultancy, research, training, and evaluation.

Systems thinking – our behavioural systems mapping approaches will help you to understand people, behaviour, and influences on behaviour in the wider context and identify levers for change.

Behavioural analysis – we conduct a behavioural analysis that provides insights and recommendations for change, based on how people actually behave rather than how we think they should.

Innovative solutions – building on our behavioural analysis, we develop innovative solutions that improve the effectiveness of your processes, services, and communications.

Evaluation – our systematic evaluation services appraise the effectiveness of new or existing programmes and strategies so you can see what does and does not work.

Organisational development – take a systematic approach to behaviour change by embedding key principles into planning, commissioning, evaluation and training, across your organisation.

Strategy and policy – we work with you to create an organisation-wide culture of behaviour change by developing policies and strategies to drive positive change.

Mentoring and supervision – support your people to embed our behavioural science training across your teams with our mentoring and supervision services for meaningful change.

An introduction to behaviour change – understand what influences how people think, feel and behave.

Applying behaviour change in practice – learn about key behaviour change techniques and frameworks and how to apply them.

Communication skills – enhance communication across your organisation with our bespoke behaviourally-informed training.

Workforce wellbeing – support your teams through tailored training that focuses on physical, mental and social wellbeing.
