The Holiday Season signifies countless things to different people. For some, it is time with family and friends. For others, it’s the chance to give back to their community. There are individuals that thrive on the celebrations and songs, and still more live for the gifts they give and receive. At the Zappos Fulfillment Center, the holiday season means all of these things and more.
Whether taking time out of a hectic year to enjoy a meal together, or simply utilizing dress-up days to honor team unity and personal creativity, the Zappos Kentucky Family has always had a knack for closing out the year in style. This season was no different, including potluck lunches, charity outings, and even a genuine Santa’s Sleigh parading through the warehouse. Welcoming the winter months has never been as warm as in 2011.
With a busy Peak Season in full swing, and long hours away from family at home, the Zappos spirit truly came out. Several groups brought joy by caroling through the Fulfillment Center with original jingles, creating a little fun and weirdness and serenading with a whole lot of cheer. Santa, along with his elves and reindeer, delivered candy canes, smiles, and delight. From a ZFC-wide gift drive, to serving hot meals, to fixing up a home in need, the family circle enveloped not only the walls of the FC, but encompassed the community as well. And for those dedicated to WOW-ing customers through the holidays, parties, celebrations, thumb wars, and theme days allowed team members to join together to ring in a great end to 2011.
Now, with both peak and the holiday season in the rearview mirror, there is one more event around the corner. Tonight, the Zappos Kentucky Family, along with some very special guests, will put the exclamation point on a fantastic year with our annual holiday party!
Happy 2012 from the Zappos Kentucky Family! May this year be merry and full of possibility!
