We’re proud to have partnered with Aviva to produce ground-breaking new research looking at how working life has changed in 2020.
‘Embracing the Age of Ambiguity’ looks at the role that ambiguity is increasingly playing – including the blurring of boundaries between work and life – and how employers have an opportunity to embrace the challenges it brings. The report draws important conclusions about the shifting relationship between employers and their employees, as well as the importance of personalising support for mental health and wellbeing at work.

Robertson Cooper has a rich heritage of providing leading workplace wellbeing research. Our founders Professor Sir Cary Cooper and Professor Ivan Robertson have over 2,000 published papers and books on the topic and are both in the top 2% of influential Occupational Psychologists in the world. With this background, we have developed a strong business capability to provide organisations of all types the support they need to create unique and thought-leading wellbeing research papers and whitepapers.
We can support or lead research projects with institutes or trade bodies who need to commission wellbeing research, organisations who wish to demonstrate their credibility around mental health and wellbeing in the HR, benefits or media & comms space, or consortia seeking funding for wellbeing research that needs expert input from wellbeing specialists.

MATTHEW HOLDER, HEAD OF CAMPAIGNS AND ENGAGEMENT, BRITISH SAFETY COUNCIL
"Robertson Cooper produced an excellent report for us, full of insights into the state of research regarding the wellbeing risks associated with the future of work. Their findings continue to frame British Safety Council’s approach to its policy, campaigning and lobbying activities to ensure work, at a time of great technological change, is healthy, fair and fit for all."
British Safety Council
We helped British Safety Council bring together the latest evidence into how work is likely to change in the future, what the probable impact will be on people’s physical and mental wellbeing and what employers, trade unions, educators and government should do now to prepare for the future.
We supported the development of a bespoke online emotional health toolkit for NHS employees that would help bridge a gap in understanding and enable employees to talk openly and regularly about emotional health, assess the impact emotional wellbeing has on themselves, their colleagues and their patients, and enable them to action plan to enable more good days than bad.
