In the Queue
We’ve all been there — stuck in line at a bank, retail store, service center or event. Although numerous studies suggest that single queue lines are faster, new research coauthored by Krannert operations and economics professor Yaroslav Rosokha finds that servers work more slowly in a single queue than when they each have their own queue.
It should come as no surprise that online product reviews correlate closely with purchasing decisions and sales, making them increasingly important to the bottom line of companies with online retailing platforms. However, what is the incentive for individual consumers who post their feedback and opinions on products?
If there is one thing certain about U.S. policy in these turbulent times, it is uncertainty. According to research by Huseyin Gulen, a professor of finance at Purdue’s Krannert School of Management, the impact on corporate investment is particularly negative,both from a short- and long-term perspective.
On the Clock
We not only live in a 24-7 world, but also work in one. From health care and manufacturing to retailing and information technology, someone is on the clock every hour of every day. Research by Purdue’s Ellen Ernst Kossek examines how that presents a growing challenge for employees, employers and those whose manage the work schedules of others.
