Governments, businesses and individuals are all interested in behaviour change for a range of reasons, but only recently is it becoming a discipline in its own right. Our understanding of the mechanisms underpinning behaviour is advancing while the contours of our environment are shifting due to large-scale trends such as climate change, digitisation, ageing populations, mass migration, and now, COVID-19.
The way we view consumer behaviour must account for how people navigate their external environment, but in contexts that that are rapidly changing what worked yesterday might not work so well today.
Our new paper outlines how we apply behavioural science to a behaviour change challenge, linking problems directly through to their solutions. We use a systems-based approach and our behaviour change framework called MAPPS to diagnose barriers, design interventions, and deliver them in the right way.
Ipsos has used this approach in a range of commercial and public sector contexts, including financial wellbeing, vaccination behaviour, cyber-security, recycling, public transport and cosmetics. This paper includes a case study on how to manage safe re-engagement with the economy as people began to resume normal activities after the first wave of COVID-19 lockdowns.

Web-Seminar: How to win consumers over through health benefits in the yogurt category
Today it is challenging to understand consumer behaviors and drivers when it comes to their buying habits and needs. That is why DuPont Nutrition & Biosciences partnered with IPSOS to conduct qualitative consumer research to understand better the consumer drivers for choosing yogurts with additional health benefits, the ingredients that relate to these health benefits and how consumers relate to them. In this web seminar we will take you through some of the results of this study and introduce you to some new concepts and ideas to be able to answer the consumer demand for additional health benefits in yogurts.
