Episode 19: Connecting Behaviours to Business Outcomes

David Green speaks with Hani Nabeel, Director of Behavioural Analytics at Alderbrooke Group.

Hani has been researching ways to quantify and measure employee behaviour, and demonstrate the causal links that contribute to - or detract from - the stated goals of the organisations. It's an elusive concept but one that is becming increasingly essential, in certain industries in particular that are facing stricter regulation and closer scrutiny of the internal culture.

Until now, these have often been largely steered by simple goals such as revenue and productivity, but more complex challenges such as social responsibility, customer engagement, diversity and sustainability.

In this week's episode, they discuss:

  • The history and nature of Behavioural Analytics
  • The research currently taking place into putting behaviours into a practical and useful framework
  • The false assumptions and contradictions that are present in a huge number of organisations
  • The relationship between behaviour and work environment
  • What you can do to identify and cultivate the behaviours that will genuinely contribute to the culture and strategy your organisation needs to flourish.

Hani Nabeel leads Human Capital Consulting for the Alderbrooke Group and is the architect behind the CultureScope solution that combines data on employees and the workplace to provide actionable insight for organisational change and transformation. As well as holding degrees in psychology, Hani was trained as an engineer and is a qualified commercial pilot, a role that sparked his own realisation that behaviour is a key but often obscure driver of risk.


Alderbrooke was founded with the mission of helping organisations achieve their objectives by solving for their people challenges. Alderbrooke delivers on this mission through a combination of executive search, executive team development and people analytics.
