Wellbeing & Benefits

The Association for Business Psychology has held its 2015 Workforce Experience Awards to celebrate excellence in business psychology.

Offering a platform for the celebration of excellence in Business Psychology, the Awards focused on demonstrating how “applying an understanding of the science of human behaviour can impact Workforce Experience and deliver commercial and practical value to organisations.”

Clodagh O’Reilly, the Chair of the Association said: “For some this demanding set of standards may seem aspirational; not all interventions get this right every time. Across the selection of case studies entered we find irrefutable proof that this is possible, it can be done. In the best cases, like in the winners’ stories, it can be done to tremendous effect!”
