Results-Only Work Environment: A Business Platform for the Contemporary Workforce

Creating a culture of success is all about investing in a contemporary workplace & management model that insures your human capital is engaged, motivated and focused on what matters to the business. Not how many hours they work, how much effort they put in, or how well they play the game. The new currency of work is measurable results. Period.


Jody Thompson is a world-recognized future workplace expert and change-maker who has been featured on the covers of BusinessWeek, Workforce Management Magazine, HR Magazine, and HR Executive Magazine, as well as in the New York Times, TIME Magazine, USA Today, and on Good Morning America, CNBC, MSNBC and CNN. She is the co-creator of the proven management innovation system, the Results-Only Work Environment™ (ROWE™) which has profound implications for how we design, utilize & measure workspaces. 

Jody is sure to shake up the audience with her fresh, provocative approach. Don’t expect PowerPoint slides with charts, graphs, and bulleted lists that can only be read with a magnifying glass. Instead, expect to be entertained, energized and challenged!
