The Role of Research in the Development of Effective Strategies

We develop strategies that transform culture to improve health and safety in organizations and communities. The development of these strategies is based on scientific research to ensure they are valid and effective. ‚Äč

Teamwork of businesspeople at work to build a business system

Given the diversity of communities, there are rarely existing solutions that fit the unique culture of a community. Instead, efforts to improve health and safety in a community need to begin with research to understand the local culture and analyze its effect on behavior.

Our research is designed in partnership with the communities we serve to ensure we are addressing the social issues that are most important to them. Such partnerships ensure that the strategies we propose from this research are relevant and supported by these communities.
