Identifying, defining and committing to core values is vital in establishing a solid culture within your organization. We share why your values and your brand are two sides of the same coin and the detailed process that Zappos went through to implement our 10 core values. And most importantly, how you can too.
One of the most critical places a company needs to stay true to their core values is in the recruitment and termination process. When an employee isn't aligned with your values, you need to move quickly. When considering a candidate, technical skills are important, but hiring for culture fit is key to creating and scaling a great culture.
You've heard the saying: “Happy employees = happy customers.” We share how having a strong company culture impacts your employees' happiness at work. And that by living your core values, you ensure employees can build strong connections with our customers. We like to say that Zappos is a service company that just happens to sell shoes, clothing, accessories... and who knows what else in the future!
