Zappos - WOW!

Have you ever heard of Zappos?

Look down at your feet. Wearing shoes? Yeah, THAT Zappos!

Did you know Zappos' headquarters is HERE? In the Las Vegas Valley?

Tomorrow night, Wednesday 10/12/2011, Zappos' "Speaker of the House*", Jamie Naughton, is going to be at the new Windmill Library, talking about the WOW that is Zappos!

Everything I've heard about Zappos is that they're weird and wonderful. Check out this video:


I *so* want to work there! I wonder if they'll need a Librarian in a few years?

Jamie's going to talk about how they manage both amazing customer service, AND making Zappos a great place to work! I love it when they say that at Zappos, "...happiness becomes the bottom line."

I'm gonna be there! This just sounds amazing!

Here's a longer piece about Zappos - It's from Nightline a few years ago. Totally WOW!


* As near as I can tell, "Speaker of the House" means she's the Squeaky Wheel who keeps things moving. Here's part of her job description:

"Jamie works directly with CEO Tony Hsieh, focusing on the culture for which the company has become known. Her role is essential in creating and driving the architecture of the dynamic culture as well as focusing on culture R&D to ensure Zappos.com always stays relevant to both the employees and their customers."

I think that's a fancy way of saying she doesn't let anyone get away with nuthin' bad!
