The “Making Better Decisions and Engaging a Remote Workforce” report

Engaging and motivating the workforce has never been more challenging. The factors that prevent employers from performing at their best are exaggerated by Covid-19 and the widespread remote working which has been made necessary by social distancing measures.

The “Beyond Decision Bias: Making Objective People Decisions” report

In the past three decades, a growing body of research has highlighted the dangers of ‘cognitive bias’ in decision making. 

Research on cognitive bias has long been discussed by leaders and decision-makers.  At times, training has been introduced to combat it.  Now more than ever, leaders can rely on a wealth of data sources to challenge assumptions.  But inconsistent or unreliable data can lead to the wrong decision, costing time and money.  The problem is far from solved.

This report demonstrates that cognitive bias remains a problem, even in a business environment that celebrates making data-driven decisions.
