Zapping Happiness Back into Zapponians! Can you say that three times fast? Probably not. But you can check out this awesome video showing you just what the Happy Zappies are. They’ve been spotted making people happy around the Zappos KY Fulfillment Center….watch out, you may be next!
Since the Holidays are all about giving, we hosted a Holiday Gift Drive at the Zappos Fulfillment Center in Kentucky and we had a great turn out! So many great toys, clothes, and other gifts were brought in all. We also collected gift cards for a local women’s shelter and phone cards for the troops. I am constantly amazed by the generosity our Zapponians here in Kentucky have. You guys rock!
It’s that time of year—time to think about what you are thankful for. Last week we went out and about the Zappos FC and asked people what they are thankful for. We had a very similar response across the board….family. We all have a lot of reasons to be thankful and our Zappos family is definitely one of those reasons as well! Oh, and of course., in true Kentucky tradition, we found this answer as well:
The Zappos Outlet Store set a record of $500,000 in sales for the month of October, and celebrated this week with a surprise team party on Wednesday, November 11th. The team was treated to breakfast from Panera Bread, as the managers dressed in 70’s costumes, presented each team member with Stress Relief Kits and gift certificates to the store, all to the theme of Kool and the Gang’s “Celebration!”.
Sue Maurer, Outlet Assistant Manager, commented on how awesome the team has been at displaying Core Value #2: Embrace and Drive Change
“The Outlet Store has been transformed since August with the help of our Fulfillment Center friends! We have increased our display capacity on the sales floor and our back stock area by at least 30%. We have also changed our pricing structure and have increased our marketing efforts in order to pump up the volume of our sales. Our team has definitely driven and embraced the many changes that have come our way over the past few months and their dedication has paid off in a big way! Special thanks to our fellow team members in Finance, IT, Maintenance, and all of the people in the FC who have helped us with their expertise!”
It’s officially peak season here at the Zappos Fulfillment Center, and peak season= craziness. But of course we have some AWESOME Zapponians that will step up and get the job done. We want to highlight our rockin’ Receiving Department and all of their hard work as they kick off the peak season. They truly are superheroes. Great job you guys!
This past weekend we had a rockin’ good time at the KY FC Zappos Fall Festival. HR did a great job of putting this event together. The festival was at the zoo and we had food, slammin’ music, a baking contest, inflatables, and tons of other family-friendly activities. We loved it and had a great time. Thank you, HR!
In honor of LIVESTRONG DAY we had a lemonade stand with fresh-squeezed lemonade and yellow cookies here at the FC. All proceeds will benefit the Lance Armstrong Foundation. Oh and all of our employees were encouraged to wear yellow today. You all look so good in yellow!
As part of our Rivalry Week festivities, we had a Duct Tape Challenge here at the KY Fulfillment Center. The only rules were to pick red or blue and let your creativity run wild. Our team members did a great job! We’re always up for creating a little fun.
And the winning team:
THE SOLUTIONS TEAM with their UK Avenger Superhero Costume.
Congrats to everyone for making some awesome duct tape outfits!
