Behavioural insights, known by many as 'nudge theory', is being used with great success to change people's behaviour in many spheres, but it's yet to become mainstream in HR practices.

In this highly practical HR Daily webcast, Nous principal Deanna Paulin will explain how to use nudges to build momentum in challenging cultural change projects.

She will discuss three examples of heuristics that influence employee behaviour, and share ways of applying behavioural insights strategies to support cultural change efforts in the workplace:

  • 'Bounded rationality' – the importance of providing quality information to foster good decision-making;
  • 'Social norms' – focusing on and showcasing desired behaviours; and
  • 'Status quo bias' – overcoming 'better the devil you know' perceptions to address resistance to change.
