About Us

The Science Behind are experts in understanding human behaviour. We combine this expertise with real world business experiences in order to inform the decision making process with insight about how people behave and why.

How We Work

Human behaviour is complex. It is multifaceted and influenced by a myriad of variables.

For businesses and organisations looking for meaningful insight, interpreting and contextualising information about how we respond to the world around us requires the application of rigour to study design and output.

We have developed a four stage process that helps us to achieve this.
