"If everyone is moving forward together, then success takes care of itself.” Henry Ford
An email from our CEO was recently sent to our employees that has many people interested in the future of Zappos. To understand the following memo, one must understand the steps leading up to this groundbreaking decision for the company. In 2013, Zappos implemented Holacracy, a system that removes traditional managerial hierarchies allowing employees to self-organize to complete work in a way that increases productivity, fosters innovation and empowers anyone in the company with the ability to make decisions that push the company forward.
Sometimes wanting to improve company culture can be a double-edged sword. It’s safe to say that both companies and employees alike want to strengthen their culture, but adding benefits can be expensive and take resources that may not be readily available. So how can a company get creative without breaking the bank? One example is the Zappos WISHEZ program.
Check out this quick video of our Zapponians explaining what it means to be a guardian of culture!
Having a strong company culture is great, but the best culture in the world doesn't matter if you do not take care of your customers.
