HR nudging is a gentle way to encourage people into changing their behaviour for the better. Whether that’s decreasing costs, increasing motivation or encouraging employees to move more: with subtle modifications, we create an environment that makes meaningful decisions and conscious actions the standard.
Over 1,000 academic studies have been published about nudging - and this number is steadily increasing.

Probably the first successful nudging strategy: a sticker in the shape of a fly in a urinal. Schiphol Airport in the Netherlands drastically improved men’s aim with this little trick.
Nudging wins: in 2002, Daniel Kahneman and Vernon L Smith won the Nobel Prize for their research into how people make decisions and judgements. In 2017, Richard Thaler received the Nobel Prize in Economics for his work looking into how psychology impacts the individual’s behaviour.

The use of nudging strategies is a largely socially acceptable way to impact behaviour. The more trust in the ‘nudging’ organisation, the more acceptance.

HR nudging dates back to after-work drinks between Mathias and Gilles, and one idea: let’s combine our specialities! After studying psychology together, they both pursued different specialities: HR and behaviour psychology.
The idea of combining these areas, HR and nudging, immediately sparked a fan base. Anja really started enthusing as she began analysing further opportunities to develop nudging in HR.
We quickly established that combining these areas unlocked previously unrealised potential. Decisions are made throughout the whole HR process that are not always in the decision-maker’s long-term interests. With HR nudging, we’re saying ‘hello’ or ‘aloha’ to change.
