Everyone has limited time, and that creates difficult trade-offs. We find it hard to balance being productive at work with an active life outside of work. Many organizations have policies aimed at improving their workers’ well-being, but created without a complete understanding of how and why people make decisions. Under flexible working hours, people are more susceptible to planning fallacy, and end up working on weekends. With increased collaboration, workers spend entire days in meetings and are left to do individual work in the evenings.

It doesn’t have to be this way. ideas42 is looking to partner with organizations interested in helping their employees achieve a healthy work-life balance. We are seeking partners who want to work with us to implement and test solutions that can help employees effectively manage the amount of time and attention they spend on work, and improve worker health, productivity, and well-being.

Drawing from our previous research, we are soliciting applications specifically from organizations that are interested in both of the following:

  1. Implementing and testing solutions to create a healthy work-life for your employees
  2. Learning how to apply behavioral science to create solutions within your organization

From the pool of qualified applications, semi-finalists will receive an in-person consultation with ideas42 staff. Finalists will be selected to partner with us to design and test specific behavioral interventions within their organizations.

The application is short and easy. It consists of two pages of writing and requires no more than three hours to complete.

Here are some resources to help you get started:

Important information to note:
