Tomasz Obloj, Associate Professor of Strategy and Business Policy

 

 

 

Envy between employees can affect a firm’s performance. In their study, Tomasz Obloj and Todd Zenger investigate what makes us compare ourselves to others at work and what this means for the firm we work for. They find that proximity to those we envy can reduce individual productivity.

Denisa Mindruta, Associate Professor of Strategy and Business Policy

 

 

 

Denisa Mindruta, Mahka Moeen and Rajshree Agarwal discover that financial support only goes so far, while investment in research capabilities makes firms more attractive. There is a top-down sorting of firms when alliances are made, with those who do the best research becoming allies!

Employee mobility: the good and the bad for business

John Mawdsley, Assistant Professor of Strategy and Business Policy

 

 

 

John Mawdsley's research reveals that the actual impact of hiring depends on myriad internal and external influences. One of his key takeaways is that companies should look more at themselves and less at CVs when they decide to recruit...

Mobilité des employés : le positif et le négatif pour l’entreprise
Les travaux de John Mawdsley révèlent que l’impact réel d’un recrutement est conditionné par une multitude de facteurs. Un des points à retenir est que les entreprises devraient davantage s'analyser elles-mêmes que les CV lorsqu'elles décident de recruter... Article en français ici...

 

Hiring new talent seems good for business: you get fresh ideas, specialist skills and your pick of the talent pool (perhaps even poached from competitors). John Mawdsley argues, however, that the win-lose model of employee mobility is too simplistic. His research reveals a complex situation where the actual impact of hiring depends on myriad internal and external influences. One of his key takeaways is that companies should look more at themselves and less at CVs when they decide to recruit.
