    It Doesn't Have To Be Crazy At Work: A Conversation with Jason Fried

    Free lunch. Napping pods. Weekly happy hours. Childcare. Unlimited snacks. Sounds amazing, right? Jason Fried is the co-founder and CEO of software company Basecamp and co-author of New York Times bestseller Rework. His latest book It Doesn’t Have to Be Crazy at Work will challenge you to take a second look at the bells and whistles of the benefits package commonly offered at some of today’s modern workplaces, and assess whether or not the long hours, lack of sleep, and unmanageable workload that come along with it are really the key to productivity.

    At this conversation hosted by mHUB with Chicago Ideas Founder & Chairman and Uptake Founder & CEO Brad Keywell, Fried will give us a peek into the culture he’s built at Basecamp–dubbed the “the company of calm”–where employees aren’t encouraged to stay at the office, but instead given benefits like family vacations funded by the company and a monthly wellness package. Together, we’ll explore the future of the working world, and how employees and employers alike might benefit when it’s not so crazy at work.
