Zappos – A Company Culture to Aspire to

A few months ago I ran across some online write ups of Zappos and their company culture. Lots of positive things floating around the net about them.

  1. You’re lucky that your HR director is looking into this book and the way Zappos has built their company around placing great emphasis on company culture, core values, and providing an exceptional customer experience.

    I received my copy today but I also finished reading my advanced copy of “Delivering Happiness: A Path to Profits, Passion, and Purpose” by Zappos CEO Tony Hsieh and it was truly inspirational while at the same time entertaining and “real” as Zappos may describe it.

    If you’re interested, I am currently hosting a giveaway of one of my unread advanced copies of the book at So far, only two entries so you’re chances are pretty good. 😉

  2. Hi Tony,

    It’s Amelia with ZI. I hope you like your culture book, and we would love to have you for a tour. Good luck with all your aspirations!

  3. Got it Friday. I’ve already loaned it out to my HR director! 🙁 I’ll try to get it back on Monday!
