What is Best Buy's corporate vision? "People. Technology. And the pursuit of happiness." People: From "unleashing the power" of our own employees to maintaining a clear focus on our relationships with customers, vendors and shareholders alike, everything Best Buy does across the world begins and ends with people. Technology: the products we sell, the services we provide and the content we share all are tied, in some way, to the technologies that connect us and shape our changing world. The pursuit of happiness: Best Buy has a unique ability to make people happy. A great place to work makes employees happy. Happy employees make customers happy. Happy employees and customers make our shareholders, vendors and community partners happy. We're not perfect and we don't always get it right ... and that's why it's important to acknowledge that we're in constant "pursuit" of happiness. What are Best Buy's corporate values? We have four values that guide our actions: Have fun while being the best. Learn from challenge and change. Show respect, humility and integrity. Unleash the power of our people. What is Best Buy's organizational structure? Best Buy operates within a multi-business unit structure designed to: maximize efficiencies across multiple business units and service areas; support new business initiatives; advance future digital strategies; and, enhance business unit performance. CORPORATE STRATEGY. BBY's business strategy centers on meeting individual consumer electronics needs with end-to- end solutions, which involves greater employee involvement and increased services. BBY is committed to scaling BBY customer-centricity across the organization, and completed the transition of all remaining stores to the customer-centric operating model in FY 08.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
