Would you work for a company that encouraged biohacking in the office – say using smart drugs – or would that be a deal breaker? Biohacking employees may just be the latest work perk, as studies have shown that nootropics (aka smart drugs) and various biohacking methods can give profound and powerful benefits to employees, positively impacting the entire business. For instance, nootropics (whether supplements or other herbal substances) can improve brain function, particularly executive functions like memory, creativity or motivation. Additionally, deep breathing, meditation and nutritious food/beverages have profound impacts on energy levels and overall attitude. So why isn’t their use or these acts more common in the workplace? This keynote will discuss how and why companies can introduce and/or provide alternative biohacking practices to company culture, and how doing so improves problem-solving and critical thinking, and enhances overall work experience.
