Employee Experience

We use behavioural science to change the behaviours and culture within your business.

Delivering the human touch

Changing behaviours has never been more important within businesses.  As organisations adapt to the new normal, we help you and your team embrace the new behaviours needed to help businesses thrive.

We firmly believe that higher order purpose and values need to be underpinned with everyday behaviours.

The training has helped me in SO many ways - this has truly been an amazing course. In particular, MINDSPACE is constantly on my brain - thinking about how we can use it to design or redesign parts of our employee experience. All of the trainers are incredible.”

Uncover subconscious insights

An Australian media business had a problem with employees stockpiling holiday and using sick days as hangover cures.

Through behavioural data science we empirically identified that this wasn’t a departmental problem it was a cultural one – chucking a sickie after Australia day had become a real norm!

Outcome – Saving of $1M Australian dollars in sick pay.



Transform employee experiences

Aegon wanted to improve the conversations they were having customers and by doing so improve employee engagement rates.

By training teams in the foundations of behavioural science and transforming their Skills, Screens, Scripts and Space, we created a winning employee experience that delivered an amazing customer experience.

Outcome – 46% reduction in Attrition Rate.

Cowry as an agency are very professional, personable and real experts in their field. From the first meeting I felt confident in their ability and that they understand us as a business and the brief at hand. The whole team are very passionate about behavioural science but also get the commercial and business KPI's that need to be considered and the role of creative big ideas. I would highly recommend Cowry to anyone wanting to look at behavioural science and get authentic and collaborative ideas that really make a difference.
