Building on previous CIPD research which looked at how behavioural science can be applied to learning and development, this report looks at the wider applications for HR and in particular its relevance to workplace behaviour and performance. Many of the insights into how our minds work have direct relevance to key HR issues, such as recruitment, people management, learning and development and organisational change.
"Behavioural science is not just a question of shaping behaviour by influencing
people in the choices they make; it is also about creating optimum conditions
for effective thinking and increasing our satisfaction and well-being."
