Cross-border Business Teams and the Entertainment Arena

Wed, 2014-01-29 10:16

More and more companies are abandoning traditional organisational structures and creating cross-border teams of people who live and work thousands of miles apart.

But there’s a catch. Nancy J Adler, the S Bronfman Chair in Management at McGill University in Montreal, puts it like this: “Interconnectedness through modern technology has deluded many people. There is the false assumption that just because we can reach anyone in the world so easily through e-mail or Skype, we are therefore all the same.”

CSR Ratings

Fri, 2014-01-24 15:11

The ascendance of socially responsible investing as a viable financial strategy has been accompanied by a similar proliferation of ratings schemes for assessing corporate social responsibility. Simply, if investors want to allocate their funds with SRI principles in mind, they need data that will allow them to make informed decisions. Indeed, over 50 rating methodologies for assessing environmental and social performance have been developed, more than a third of them since 2005. At some point, this may have become too much of a good thing.

Réunions marchées : lève-toi, il faut qu’on parle

Tue, 2014-01-21 12:07

Deux ans. C’est le nombre d’années d’espérance de vie que nous gagnerions si nous passions moins de trois heures par jour assis, selon une étude américaine publiée en 2012. Selon les auteurs, la position assise prolongée est aussi néfaste pour la santé que le tabagisme ou l’obésité.

Modern Travel: Keep Calm and Carry It On

Mon, 2014-01-27 11:07

For the modern airline passenger, boarding a plane has morphed into a torturous Tetris-like ordeal—finding that last nook in the overhead bin to jam in your own, probably oversized, carry-on bag.

... “Airlines somewhat have brought this on themselves by starting to charge [for checked bags] because people are going to try to avoid those charges,” says Karl Moore, a McGill professor and aviation expert. “If you’re going to have to pay $50, you’re certainly incented to avoid putting that luggage [in cargo] below.”
