Every year, thousands of visitors come from around the world to visit Menlo Innovations, a small software company in Ann Arbor, Michigan. They make the trek not to learn about technology but to witness a different approach to company culture. CEO and Chief Storyteller Rich Sheridan removed the fear and ambiguity that typically make a workplace miserable. His own experience in the software industry taught him that, for many, work was marked by long hours and mismanaged projects with low-quality results. Some called it a "death march". There had to be a better way. Joy, Inc. offers an inside look at how Sheridan and Menlo created an intentionally joyful culture and shows how any organization can follow their methods for a more passionate, hardworking team and sustainable, profitable results. Sheridan also shows how to run smarter meetings, build cultural training into the hiring process, and de-emphasize bosses.
