The Corporate Culture Scholarship sponsored by The Investor’s Podcast is open to all undergraduate and graduate students currently attending any North American university.
Throughout multiple episodes, The Investor’s Podcast has studied the corporate culture of multiple industries and found it to be the most important indicator of future success. The intention of the scholarship is to expose corporations’ increasing focus on profit and decreasing interest in employees’ well-being. The Investor’s Podcast firmly believes that a highly profitable company shouldn’t come at the expense of its employees’ happiness. We believe that sustainable profitability originates from the employees’ happiness, and that value creation for society and the individual starts with the employers’ genuine actions of showing how much they care.
In your application, please elaborate on your ideal culture from your future employer. You should also include your personal background and how it’s related to the podcast episode above about the corporate culture at Zappos.com.
You can find more information about corporate culture in the executive summary of the book Delivering Happiness here.
