1 Zappos Analysis The core of Zappos’ culture lies behind two underlying values. The first is to please the customer and the second is to please the employee. Zappos’ success is due to Tony Hsieh creating a company culture that depends on the implementation of these two ideas. According to Bauer & Erdogan, “organizations that have a rare and hard-toimitate organizational culture benefit from it as a competitive advantage.” Tony showed us he was a visionary because he was able to recognize the value behind a strong company culture, despite other initial investors overlooking this detail of the company. Zappos’ leadership would agree with this statement since they believe their company culture is the differentiator.

This will help when new employees are added to the team and will also help ensure that the behaviors within the organization are acceptable and beneficial to the overall outcome of the business. The culture should be determined right from the start so the right employees are hired. It becomes important to make sure there is a way of identifying the people that truly allow the company to be successful and not just hire the superstar, not everyone will fit in to all of the different type of organizational cultures. Determining which type of culture to work in will help tremendously when trying to find an ideal business to work for.
Problem Statement The company is changing its in store structure to make it more efficient. While doing so, it is confusing the hourly associate, as their jobs seem to be changing daily.

Professionalism is essentially, the knowledge that an individual conveys about a certain field. At work, professionalism refers to a person doing his or her job with sincerity, and maintaining professional etiquette and ethics in the workplace. Companies specify which behaviors are acceptable, and which are not, when they first start the hiring process for a new employee.
Employees are the workforce of a company and they expect the organisation to provide them with security, safe working conditions, rewarding work, and fairness. If the employees are happy with their job they will work harder in the organisation. Also suppliers are part of the environment of an organisation and they expect to be paid in full by the agreed date. When the organisation doesn’t pay the suppliers by the agreed date, the suppliers will probably prefer to work with other organisations in the future. Managers should pay attention also to the communities where the customers and workers live; this is important for the reputation of the company.
