Getting Better at Doing Good | Susan Stevens at Wespire

In 2010, Susan Stevens’ job at the New York Times gave her a front row seat to the social media transformation of our society. She also observed how our phones became tools of both entertainment and personal inspiration.

And like herself, she saw a culture more and more concerned with making a positive impact on the world. An epiphany brought these elements together, and her company, Wespire, was born.

In this episode of UpTech Report, Susan talks about how Wespire combines the interactivity of social media and the fun of game mechanics to help people live better and how companies are using these tools to improve their workplace culture.
