Supporting thought leadership in Workplace Wellbeing

Robertson Cooper have a rich heritage of providing leading workplace wellbeing research.

Our founders Professor Sir Cary Cooper and Professor Ivan Robertson have over 2000 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.

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.
