The Future of Work -- 02/07/19 Daypass -- Build a Workplace People Love--Just Add Joy
Speaker’s Synopsis: Rich will explore what an intentionally joyful work culture must choose as its focus. He will discuss what a joyful workplace looks and feels like, and how it is organized. You will see paradoxical approaches: How workplace noise increases productivity, how two people at one computer outperform hero-based organizations, how rigor and discipline emanate from a shared-belief system, how transparency conquers fear, and how quality can be a natural result of a team built on trust. Speaker: Rich Sheridan – CEO, Menlo Innovations Menlo Innovations CEO, Rich Sheridan, had one thought during a difficult mid-career in the technology industry: ...things can be better -- much better! Ultimately, Rich and co-founder James Goebel invented Menlo Innovations in 2001 to “end human suffering in the world as it relates to technology.” Their unique company—which creates custom software--is so interesting that almost 4,000 people a year travel from around the world to see it. Rich is author of Joy, Inc. - How We Built a Workplace People Love. His second book, Chief Joy Officer, is due in December.
