Episode Description

Most workers today would agree that there is not much joy at work. In fact, employee engagement scores have been at their all-time low over the past 8 years or so according to Gallop and the Conference Board. But how has CEO Richard Sheridan been able to create such joy at Menlo Innovations? Even the delivery man notices the "vibe" when he comes into their offices and wonders "how can I get a job here?" Join me in an interview with Rich Sheridan, CEO of Menlo Innovations and author of "Joy, Inc." We will be discussing the "secret sauce of Menlo" and how he and his team have created such joy at work. It should prove to be an interesting, insightful and sometimes controversial conversation with one of the most humble CEO's I know.
