The speaker is Jared Houghton, Co-Founder of Ambition, a gamification and analytics platform used by sales professionals in logistics, homebuilding, insurance, e-commerce, recruiting, healthcare and information technology.
The purpose of Ambition is to fuel office engagement and productivity, inspiring workers to hit daily performance benchmarks and work more cohesively as a team. Ambition targets two key issues affecting the workplace right now: 1) A general lack of engagement across the workforce, reported by Gallup just last year as affecting 70 percent of America’s workforce. 2) A spiking demand for office cultures that attract and optimize Millennials, now America’s #1 workplace demographic.
As a catalyst for success on both fronts, Ambition has earned accolades from the Harvard Business Review, Business Insider and other publications for the impact its platform has had on sales teams, whether the client is a Fortune 1000 industry leader, a growing mid-market company, or an upstart small business. Their early success portends a bright future for both Ambition and the American workforce at-large as we enter a new era in workforce productivity.
