Together, we help shape #BetterLives

These are snapshots of the impact achieved through our collaboration with policy makers and partners across society. We help inform and advance policy debate so that countries can make the right decisions and reforms to deliver better policies for their citizens and to meet global commitments, such as the Sustainable Development Goals.

Since the global financial crisis of 2008, we have adjusted our focus from promoting growth as an end in itself to take into account all aspects of well-being, putting people at the centre of our analysis. We look at health, skills, work-life balance and life satisfaction. We innovate in finding ways for economic growth to benefit everyone.

As our societies evolve, we re-examine and adapt our thinking and policy responses. Under our new approaches to economic challenges initiative, we go beyond traditional economic models and take into account the many factors shaping people’s decisions, such as culture, identity, psychology, and behaviour. We also analyse global transformations, such as the impact of new technologies on society, jobs and the economy.
