Now that you have selected the company for the Company Culture Challenge, you will begin conducting research on the topic. Conducing research is an important skill to hone while in college as it will service you well in the business world.

In this discussion post, you will find articles and information regarding the topic your team is exploring for your Team Company Culture Challenge. You will then review the research with your team to use it in Part 1 of your assignment. Tips for Conducting Research Be aware of the date articles/content was created Older articles can give historical information, however, stats and concepts can be outdated. Articles created in the last year are usually more accurate when conducting research. However, be aware that even when an article is recent, you need to look at the date of stats presented in the article as well to ensure they are still relevant. You can use filters in to find news pieces, scholarly articles, as well as more recent pieces. Use “advanced search” as a tool when conducting research. Make sure that sites you visit are credible. .gov sites and .org sites are usually more based in fact and can be a good starting point. News sites such as Forbes. New York Times, and Business Insider are also good places to start. Make sure you verify statistics to see if they are current on various sources. Just because one person/source states a statistic does not mean it is accurate. Be cautious of opinion pieces. Use library resources to conduct research – (Links to an external site.)
