Harvard Business Review Showcases EYP Knowledge Management Strategy

Employee knowledge is critical to business success, but relatively few companies have a C-level strategy for managing knowledge. In a recent article, the Harvard Business Review describes how EYP links in-house employee education to its strategic plan to fuel impressive growth and continuous innovation. Highlights from EYP's innovation program include active 1:1 mentorships, ‘up/down” knowledge-sharing - including technical and “softer” communications and management skills - and extensive research through internal employee grants programs and research with business and academic partners.

As American colleges and universities increasingly recognize the value of educating the “whole student,” the effect of campus residential life on various student outcomes – campus engagement, peer interactions, etc. – has been the subject of ongoing study. EYP is one of the first to systematically investigate the impact of the spatial environment itself on student development, attitudes, and outcomes. Our Living-Learning research findings offer colleges and universities, as well as architects and builders, key insights into how space types and usage impact student learning and development, so that they can maximize resources to enhance student experience.
