In Search of Purpose: Employee Engagement through Co … CO1-277-I
The case centers on Southlake Financial, a stylized company based on financial services in Canada. The case opens with a call to action from the company CEO, pledging the business will move toward a greater organization-wide focus on purpose (“purpose” meaning embedding more social and environmental intentionality in all aspects of the business). Traditionally, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and Human Resources were managed separately at the company; however, the CEO’s announcement raises the question of whether greater integration of these functions will be needed. Specifically, the case examines how employee engagement can contribute to CSR objectives, while also questioning whether CSR initiatives have a positive and demonstrable benefit on employee engagement.Academic Area:Organisational Behaviour
Laura Carpenter CO1-248-I
Laura felt depressed and confused. The idea of entering the competitive world of an associate in Investment Advisory really didn’t appeal to her. She felt she had proven her ability and didn’t want to go through the initial stages of having to make a big impression again. Besides, David was her mentor, wasn’t he? Moreover, from all she had read about women in business, wasn’t the mentor system supposed to be an essential ingredient in helping women move to the top? Was she looking a gift horse in the mouth and just being a spoiled brat? After all, without David’s guidance and support, she might be still typing somewhere.
This case discusses Laura Carpenter's situation, which involves her six years of experience in an investment company and a recently acquired MBA degree. Her current role has setbacks and advantages, but when she is offered a new role in another department of the company, with a deadline for her decision, she needs to make up her mind.Academic Area:Organisational Behaviour

Cómo detectar en qué etapa de la relación se encuent … MK2-149
In marketing, especially now when relationships with consumers are built on the basis of the entire purchasing funnel in a coherent and linked way, it is key to detect what phase of the funnel the consumer is in with the brand.
A brand’s ultimate goal is always for the consumer to buy. But why does the consumer not do it? Is it because he does not know me? Does he know me but not prefer me? And if he does it, does he buy again and recommend me?
This is key because the strategy to work on awareness (TV) is different than the one to work on consideration (product test), preference (working with advocates) or purchase (promotions).Academic Area:Marketing & Communications
