Tiina’s talk will focus primarily on BIT’s employment trials that apply behavioural insights to helping people find jobs. The talk will also cover examples from BIT’s most recent trials, including trials on charitable giving. The final part of the talk will present results from a new cross-national dataset on perceived social norms and the implications these have for behavioural interventions.
