Investors in behavioural science
Our focus on Behavioural Science is led by our Director of Mental Health, Dr Nick Zygouris who has significant clinical background in behaviour change theories and methodologies. He is supported by Jamie Botevyle, a health psychology expert in developing content that maximises the likelihood of participation through BeSci tactics and principles such as ‘nudge’ and ‘C-Factors’.
We are combining our experience with the expertise of our award-winning Behavioural Science (BeSci) partner, Cowry Consulting, to create health and wellbeing programmes that embed BeSci insights at every touchpoint. Through this market-leading partnership we plan to improve our health and wellbeing initiatives and increase the uptake across all our client’s employee base.
