More and more self-employed entrepreneurs are setting up their laptops at co-working spaces where they can work free of charge. These places have a more sociable vibe than your home, serve decent coffee and often offer lunch into the bargain. But do they actually add value to your business? They do if you ‘pay’ for your free lunch with ‘social capital’, according to a study carried out by Associate Professor Vareska Van de Vrande and Assistant Professor Michiel Tempelaar from Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University (RSM).

World-shaking accounting scandals often originate in financial reporting from internal accountants. By studying internal accountants’ brain activity, Professor Frank Hartmann of Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University (RSM) discovered that some misreporting comes from a neurological make-up that makes them more vulnerable to social pressure from managers promoting their own personal interests. Hartmann says the results shed a different light on who should – and who shouldn’t ‒ be hired for internal accountants’ positions.

‘Always listen to your customer’ might not be the best advice when designing new products, says Professor Jan van den Ende of Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University (RSM). The results of his new study show that including customers in the design process is a good idea only when developing radical innovations designed around functionality. He found that companies that design radically new innovations for aesthetics, or for an emotional experience or to suit the identity of the user, are better off not involving customers.

What is it about a TV advert that triggers people to find the product online? Scanning consumers’ brains has allowed Linda Couwenberg of Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University (RSM) to discover that a TV advert works best when it both highlights a product’s functional benefits and triggers the viewer’s imagination. This particular combination of elements activates specific parts of the viewer’s brain most intensely, she found, which makes the advert more effective.

Labels such as Fairtrade, Green Seal and Utz claim that a product was produced in a socially and environmentally sustainable way.

Managers of international teams often see nationality as ‘software of the mind’ that explains and predicts how their team members will behave. Researcher Giorgio Touburg argues that nationality, and customs and local peculiarities that come with it when you grow up in a particular country, is just one item on the cultural menu from which people can pick and choose to shape their identity. By exploring others’ cultural and national backgrounds, leaders can create more understanding in their teams and avoid stereotyping.

Social activism, especially when played out in the media, is a powerful method to push corporations towards better working conditions or a better care for the environment. But sometimes the companies that take the lead in cleaning up their act find themselves targeted by even more social activism, demanding more change. That is what Katinka C. van Cranenburgh of Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University (RSM) discovered in her case study on Heineken’s efforts to improve conditions for ‘beer promoters’ in Cambodia.

Global seaports have traditionally put a lot of effort into minimising the cost of freight flows. By focusing on efficiency of their current process, ports are missing out on opportunities to innovate in more exploratory ways, argues Rick Hollen from Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University (RSM).

Advising a one-size-fits-all ‘alternative route’ for all passengers when metros or trains are disrupted is no longer the only option. Automated fare collection systems such as the OV-chipkaart in the Netherlands and the Oyster card in London, as well as everyday technology such as apps on smart phones, can produce detailed and personalised customer journey information that can be used to create new travel plans for each passenger when there is a disruption in the network. This information has only recently become available to public transport operators, and it features in new research by PhD candidate Evelien van der Hurk of Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University (RSM) in close collaboration with Dutch railway operator NS.The research reveals that the usage of these data sources can give travellers a better experience during disruptions.
