A story

of passion

BVA Nudge Unit’s story is, above all, a story of passion. We are passionate about Behavioral Science and its application to the challenges that all public and private sector organizations face every day: creating sustainable, transformative change in their consumers’ behavior and within their own organizations.

We are passionate about conceiving innovative interventions that may be small “nudges” but add up to have huge cumulative impact. We are passionate about always learning in order to be at the cutting edge of Behavioral Economics and its actionable application. We are passionate about working collaboratively as a team, both in-house and with our clients. We are passionate about promoting the power of Behavioral Science and creating efficiency for our clients.

An incubation phase inside BVA’s Innovation department allowed us to conceive and develop our unique approach, after which the BVA Nudge Unit was created in 2013. From this founding moment, the passion that drives our team has been at the very heart of our culture.

At BVA Nudge Unit we are on an ongoing quest for excellence in the theory and practice of applying behavioral science to the most challenging business and social problems. Our ambition is to continue to attract and enable the most effective team, able to conceive and deliver the most relevant strategies and actions, allowing clients to achieve genuine transformational behavioral change.

Our distinctive approach blends a unique combination of complementary competencies: a fundamental academic knowledge in behavioral economics alongside rigorous multi-disciplinary expertise and experience in marketing, communication, qualitative and quantitative research, design thinking, executive coaching, change management and consulting.

We aren’t just theorists. We have been in your shoes and we know that, in order to be effective, you need to transcend the academic and recognise the simple and pragmatic steps to “nudge” change. This multi-disciplinary approach; our actual experience within organizations like yours allows us to develop specific processes that drive genuine, unique efficiency in each of our behavioral change strategies.

of innovation

Innovation is at the core of BVA Nudge Unit’s history, having been incubated inside our parent company, the BVA Group. We were tasked with envisioning the future of consultancy and the innovations that could transform our clients’ businesses.

Our first intervention, created for our clients within the SGMAP and the DGFIP in 2013, was the result of our NudgeLab methodology. The case study was recognized both in France and internationally with the 2014 Marketing Trophy, the 2014 “Best Case History” and the 2015 “Overall Best Paper” of the international research association, ESOMAR.

Since our founding moment, BVA Nudge Unit has committed to innovate, test and learn, both in terms of our methodological approaches and the problems they can be applied to.
