Abstract

Purpose

This paper aims to review the latest management developments across the globe and pinpoint practical implications from cutting-edge research and case studies.

Design/methodology/approach

This briefing is prepared by an independent writer who adds their own impartial comments and places the articles in context.

Findings

For many undergraduates about to be unleashed onto the world of employment, one would imagine they will have fairly standard ideas of the kind of employer they would like to work for: one that pays its staff well, one that will invest in their careers, and one that will offer some fringe benefits as well. Indeed, prospective employers will put the metaphorical red carpet out when recruiting, either by hiring fancy hotels for the initial interview rounds, or by showing potential employees around the very best bits of their offices.

Practical implications

The paper provides strategic insights and practical thinking that have influenced some of the world’s leading organizations.

Originality/value

The briefing saves busy executives and researchers hours of reading time by selecting only the very best, most pertinent information and presenting it in a condensed and easy-to-digest format.
