By Jiang Jianqing As the world’s largest exporter and second largest importer, China has a pressing need to upgrade its industrial structure and capacity, address trading partners’ concerns about imbalances and accusations of dumping, and tackle homegrown environmental problems that have resulted from years of being the world’s factory. In recent years, mergers and acquisitions have been one of the tools heavily relied upon to accomplish these goals. But with the increasingly loud voices – in some key markets – of those in favor of investment protectionism, Chinese companies may find that overseas mergers and acquisitions (M&As) are not as easy to pull off as they were a few years ago.

Investors often find emerging market stocks to be a black box. The enterprises listed on these stock markets operate in environments which tend to have low levels of transparency and governance, and high levels of corruption, making it difficult to evaluate them with the same investment principles that apply to companies in mature markets. The results of a new research study co-authored by CEIBS Vice President and Dean Professor Ding Yuan and Associate Professor of Finance Zhang Hua offer investors a tool for shining some light on them.

Among the Google employees surveyed for the 2017 Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For List, 97% said they have special and unique benefits. The survey asks employees about their overall job satisfaction, office camaraderie, and their employer’s internal communications, training, recognition, and other HR systems and practices. The 100 companies who made the list (Google was #1 in 2017, for the eighth time in 11 years) have clearly made a significant investment in what academics call high performance work systems (HPWS). The results of a new study co-authored by CEIBS Professor of Management Tae-Yeol Kim show that the investment is worthwhile, as these practices are a useful tool for talent recruitment.

Getting your team to be more creative can often feel like trying to catch lightening in a bottle. New ideas can’t be churned out on an assembly line like cars or refrigerators, and pushing people to be more creative can often have the opposite effect. A new study co-authored by CEIBS Professor of Management Tae-Yeol Kim provides some insight into the ingredients necessary for stimulating creativity in organizations.

Most of us are aware of the health benefits of a good diet and regular exercise. The results of a new study show that our social relationships at work also affect our wellness. In a new meta-analysis covering 58 studies and more than 19,000 people in 15 different countries co-authored by CEIBS Assistant Professor of Management Sebastian C. Schuh, the researchers found that how strongly we identify with the people or organization where we work is associated with better health and lower stress.http://www.ceibs.edu/schuh-sebastian-c
