  • To mark Canada’s national Mental Health Week, we are putting a spotlight on the power of the brain and the ability to make effective decisions. Join us as we delve into the world of Behavioural Economics, the science of decision-making. A blend of psychology, economics, and neuroscience, it provides a new lens for organizations to understand their businesses, and is an invaluable tool for revolutionizing the development and implementation of policies, standards, and regulations within organizations.

    The session will be led by Michelle Hilscher, an Associate at BEworks, the world's first management consulting firm dedicated to applying behavioural science to strategy, operations, marketing, and other organizational challenges.

    During this session we will cover:

    - Basics of Behavioural Economics
    - How Behavioural Economics Can Increase Compliance
    - Behavioural Compliance Optimization (BCO)
    - Behavioural Process Engineering (aka in-the-moment honesty)
