Common to all is the mission to deliver clear insights that place the customer at the heart of our clients’ strategic decisions. Over the years, BVA BDRC has grown an international network of offices in Washington DC, Singapore, Jakarta, Sydney, Beijing and Cape Town. The Asia Pacific headquarters was established in 2011.

In 2018, BDRC became part of the Paris- based BVA Group, rebranding as BVA BDRC. Joining a larger group has brought fresh thinking in emerging areas such as behavioural economics and nudge theory, entry into new markets and a more extensive international network.

BVA BDRC also apply the latest techniques in customer experience, including the application of ‘effort scoring’, Net Promoter Score (NPS) benchmarking and User Experience (UX) research. Behavioural science is a topic of growing interest across all industries. Our colleagues in the BVA Nudge Unit are helping our clients create affordable, sustainable and transformative changes in both customer and employee behaviour. We believe that behavioural science can contribute to a better world by encouraging people to adopt new behaviours which are good for both themselves and society.
