Build a Workplace People Love
- Just add Joy
Presented by: Rich Sheridan
Thursday, March 3, 7:30 AM - 10:30 AM
The Harvard Club, Downtown Boston
How could joy unleash the human energy and the results you always knew were possible at your company? Join us for "Build a Workplace People Love - Just add Joy", a morning seminar and workshop with Rich Sheridan on Thursday, March 3 at 7:30 AM at the The Harvard Club Downtown to find out.
In his book "Joy, Inc. – How We Built A Workplace People Love," Sheridan shares how a company culture focused on the business of joy produces results - business and otherwise. Some call it agile, some call it lean, but Sheridan and his team at Menlo Software Factory call it “joyful.” The company’s practices are so admired that 5 percent of its $3.6 million in revenues derive from teaching them to others.
Come hear Rich Sheridan discuss what joy looks like, feels like, and how it organizes. Take part in thought-provoking discussions about the experiences and challenges of leading teams focused on “the business value of joy.”
Executives from companies like Mercedes Benz, Thomson Reuters, and Toyota have all learned how to transform their company culture by working with Rich Sheridan. This Spring, learn how to cultivate passionate, energized teams and sustainable, profitable results right here in Boston.

From kid programmer in 1971 to Forbes cover story in 2003, Joy, Inc. author Richard Sheridan (U-M grad BS Computer Science '80, MS Computer Engineering '82) has never shied from challenges, opportunities nor the limelight. While his focus has always been around technology, his passion is actually process, teamwork and organizational design, with one inordinately popular goal: the Business Value of Joy! Sheridan is an avid reader and historian, and his software design and development team at Menlo Innovations didn't invent a new culture, but copied an old one ... Edison's Menlo Park New Jersey lab. Henry Ford's recreation of the Menlo Park Lab in Greenfield Village was a childhood inspiration!
Some call it agile, some call it lean … Sheridan and his team call it joyful. And it produces results, business and otherwise. Six Inc. magazine revenue growth awards, invites to the White House, speaking engagements around the nation, numerous articles and culture awards and so much interest they are doing a tour a day of the Menlo Software Factory™.
