    How Organizations Can Increase Gender Diversity by Rethinking Job Recruitment, with Brian Rubineau

    How Organizations Can Increase Gender Diversity by Rethinking Job Recruitment, with Brian Rubineau

    In the past few years of the Covid pandemic, many people have left or lost their jobs and sought out new ones. Who has succeeded and who hasn’t depends not only on merit and ability, but on who you know—word-of-mouth is one of the most common ways that people learn about and are encouraged to apply for jobs. And who you know typically reflects your gender, race, and other influential differences that in policy terms are markers of diversity. Examining the role gender plays in job recruitment and hiring can lead to a more diverse workforce that benefits both organizations and society.
    On the Delve podcast, Desautels Faculty of Management Professor Brian Rubineau discusses new research that shows how gender is a factor in word-of-mouth recruiting, as well as in who actually applies for the job in the first place and who reapplies after they’ve been rejected. Some of his findings surprised him.
    For research-based insights on diversity, equity, and inclusion in job recruitment, listen to the Delve podcast interview and read the article with professor Rubineau on Delve.

    Scale Deep Not Up for Sustainable Local Entrepreneurship, with Anna Kim and Suntae Kim

    Scale Deep Not Up for Sustainable Local Entrepreneurship, with Anna Kim and Suntae Kim

    How would definitions of business growth and success change if entrepreneurship ventures decided that instead of scaling up, they would “scale deep”? On the Delve podcast, Desautels Faculty of Management professor Anna Kim and her co-author Johns Hopkins Carey Business School Professor Suntae Kim discuss their eight-year study of two entrepreneurship-nurturing organizations in Detroit, revealing important differences in resourcing modes and venture growth. What they observed in that city is happening in many other places, whether small towns or big cities, rural or urban, where the issue of revitalization is top of mind. 
    “With the scaling deep approach, the more locally embedded approach, because you keep working with local partners, utilizing local resources, and making connections in those local contexts, your services and products become very, very meaningful locally,” explains Anna Kim. “But it doesn't actually mean a lot outside of Detroit or outside of a certain neighborhood. So it actually anchors them even more deeply in the local context.”

    Remix or Reinvent? How Deviance Can Drive Careers in the Creative Community of EDM, with Amandine Ody-Brasier

    Remix or Reinvent? How Deviance Can Drive Careers in the Creative Community of EDM, with Amandine Ody-Brasier

    When does deviance from the norm propel a career or stop it in its tracks? The enforcement of certain norms and legalities around intellectual property isn’t always up to the law—it’s up to the community. Desautels professor Amandine Ody-Brassier discovered that within the electronic dance music (EDM) community, norms around unlawful activities such as illegal remixes are loose and often garner support, even career-launching acclaim. Her research asks how norms—appropriate, though not necessarily legal, behaviors shared by community members—affect careers and other economic outcomes in creative occupations.

    How Barriers to Foreign Investments Affect Risk-Taking in International Markets, with Francesca Carrieri

    How Barriers to Foreign Investments Affect Risk-Taking in International Markets, with Francesca Carrieri

    What regulations are at play when financial institutions, hedge funds, mutual fund managers, and others invest in stocks and businesses in another country—and who do those regulations ultimately benefit? Despite protecting both foreign investors and countries’ domestic markets, regulatory constraints still present certain barriers to foreign investment, especially in times of market stress, inflation, and increased interest rates. Desautels Professor Francesca Carrieri examines the dynamics of global market integration before and after the 2008 financial crisis, asking what level of risk will foreign investors take today in the name of diversification of their portfolios? 
    "What we can do is strengthen the financial system overall, but also make sure that, under certain conditions, institutional investors have the liquidity necessary to strengthen their underlying positions,” says Carrieri.

    How FinTech Lending to Small Businesses Opens the Door to Bank Loans, with Paul Beaumont

    How FinTech Lending to Small Businesses Opens the Door to Bank Loans, with Paul Beaumont

    Bank loans are the typical first step for most small and medium-sized businesses, but another form of business lending has emerged: FinTech companies that use algorithms to determine whether a business is worth the risk. Desautels Professor Paul Beaumont’s research has found that firms served by FinTech platforms have fewer tangible assets than bank borrowers—yet relative to similar firms that take out bank loans or were denied FinTech credit, FinTech borrowers experience a long-term 20% increase in bank credit after receiving their FinTech loan. 
    “We have been lending the same way to small and medium-sized enterprises now for decades,” says Beaumont. “FinTechs constitute an innovation in the way we lend to firms. This is exciting because it means that finally we have invented a new business model to provide funds to small and medium-sized businesses… What we observed is that, in a sense, FinTechs fill the void left by banks when banks lend less often to small and medium-sized businesses.”

    How Cities Can Make Ride-Hailing Services Environmentally Sustainable, with Animesh Animesh

    How Cities Can Make Ride-Hailing Services Environmentally Sustainable, with Animesh Animesh

    What if using a ride-hailing app like Uber or Lyft could help decrease a city’s carbon emissions? Combined with public transit use and municipal policy changes, that’s beginning to happen. However, the bigger, less understood question is what motivates people to choose their cars over the bus, or Uber over walking to work. New data-driven research from Desautels Professor Animesh Animesh shows the environmental impact of ride-hailing and how comprehensive urban planning policies could make the skies a lot clearer.
    “Our suggestion to city policymakers is that you should look at the distribution of riders, drivers, and walkers in your community,” says Animesh. “Accordingly, you will be able to figure out the impact of Uber on the traffic and environment in general.”
