Go Virtual: Save Money, Sustain People and Planet

A session at SXSW Interactive 2011

Monday 14th March, 2011

12:30pm to 1:30pm (CST)

Forward-thinking businesses are leveraging interactive technologies to engage diverse talent, modify behavior, reduce environmental impact, and save big on their bottom line. Adoption can also result in equal improvement in employee engagement. (i.e. Have you worked with a classic asshole? Ever imagine how eliminating or retraining that person would have made everyone happier and more productive?) Leading businesses have advanced beyond Bob Sutton’s No Asshole Rule and are leveraging technology for improved social norms and accountability to their ecosystems. From micro-biz to mega-corp, attend this session for insights into achieving systemic sustainability without sacrificing productivity or access to employees, clients and work partners. The conversation will run the gamut from emerging innovations, proven solutions and first-hand experiences to implications of behavioral theory – sure to include at least one “managers behaving badly” story (just for fun!).
