Behavioral Grooves at Azul Seven
February 20, 2020 5:30-8:00pm Azul Seven’s Studio: 1310 Quincy Street NE Suite 102
Join us on Thursday, February 20 for the Behavioral Grooves Meetup. Rodd Wager, John Harris, Kurt Nelson, PhD and Tim Houlihan will have a roundtable discussion on the ethics of applying behavioral science to workplace engagement strategies. Are companies going too far with nudges? Are some firms increasing their budgets for rewards in lieu of meaningful increases in basic wages?
We start gathering at 5:30 pm and begin presentations at 6:00 pm. Everyone is welcome to stay for snacks and drinks around 7:20 pm. Paid parking is available in the Indeed lot on Quincy and 14th. Please do not park in the Highlight Center lot or in front of our neighboring businesses.
About Behavioral Grooves
We are a group of curious minds that want to share and learn about how we can apply behavioral science to work and life. We find interesting speakers from across town or the country to come in and give a TED-style presentation of 15-20 minutes and then dialogue around that topic with the larger group.
If you are at all interested in why people behave and think the way they do, this is your group!
We meet the third Thursday of each month. Join us at 5:30 pm for socializing, learning and fun discussion. We welcome all levels of interest and experience and our speakers will talk about our biases, the heuristics we use in decision making and how nudges work in the real world.
