Today, we begin a podcast series with Rich Sheridan, CEO and Chief Joy Officer of Menlo Innovations in Ann Arbor, Michigan
Rich became disillusioned in the middle of his career in the chaotic technology industry. He had an all-consuming thought…things can be better. Much better. He had to find a way. Why couldn't a workplace be filled with camaraderie, human energy, creativity, and productivity?
Ultimately, Rich co-founded Menlo Innovations in 2001 to end human suffering in the workplace. His unique approach to custom software creation is so surprisingly different, that 3,000 people a year travel from around the world just to see how they do it.
His passion for creating joyful work environments led to his bestselling and widely-celebrated book, Joy, Inc. - How We Built a Workplace People Love. His highly-anticipated second book, Chief Joy Officer, came out December 4th and will continue to prove that a positive and engaging leadership style is actually good for business.
Here’s Rich Sheridan to speak about Joy in the workplace:
