Business Value of Joy® (Private)

At Menlo, we take joy very seriously. Joy isn’t just a nice concept: it has measurable impact on the bottom line. In our goal to End Human Suffering as It Relates to Technology®, Menlo has intentionally created a culture focused on the business value of joy. Thousands of people travel to Menlo every year from around the world to learn about our culture and see firsthand our processes and way of working.

In this workshop, you will get hands-on insight into how we have crafted our systems and processes to create a simple, clear, unambiguous culture focused on elevating the human energy of our team to get practical work done (and done well) as a team. You will find out how incorporating joy into every level of your organization can eradicate unwelcome surprises, manage human resources powerfully without traditional HR, bring your team to the same page with shared goals and values, and enable you to design and build products that thrill your customers and bring about repeat business.

For this customizable experience, you’ll spend either a half-day or a full eight hours at Menlo learning about joy from the company described by Inc. magazine as “the most joyful company in America.” You'll get the opportunity to tour our “factory” and ask tough questions to seasoned Menlo experts -- no question is out of bounds, really! You will also spend time with Menlonians in the trenches, learning directly from the people doing the work. Additionally, there will be ample opportunity to explore topics of particular interest to you.

Dependent on availability, you can even schedule Menlo CEO Rich Sheridan or COO James Goebel to be your workshop leader!

You will come away knowing how to:

  • Harness the power of joy to meet your company’s goals
  • Build a culture of action instead of meetings
  • Create consensus and get everyone on the same page
  • Turn “plan” from a noun into a verb
  • Pursue a culture of joy in your own organization
