Zappos: El valor económico de cultivar una cultura diferencial

octubre 15, 2013 by Rene Gomez


A través del video que nos compartió Xavier sobre obsesionarse con los clientes, me llamó la atención la forma en la que Jeff Bezos se refirió al valor de la cultura de Zappos, compañía de venta online adquirida por Amazon.

Por eso me eché un clavado para conocer más y me gustó el reporte de esta visita realizada por Soren Gordhamer a la compañía, en la que definitivamente identificó prácticas diferentes (a otras compañías de tecnología, incluyendo Google).

Aquí les dejo una lista de valores que la compañía se esmera en cultivar y ser consistente con:

  1. Deliver WOW Through Service
  2. Embrace and Drive Change
  3. Create Fun and A Little Weirdness
  4. Be Adventurous, Creative, and Open-Minded
  5. Pursue Growth and Learning
  6. Build Open and Honest Relationships With Communication
  7. Build a Positive Team and Family Spirit
  8. Do More With Less
  9. Be Passionate and Determined
  10. Be Humble

Y una muestra de lo que los clientes opinan del servicio de esta compañía:

Thank you again for the prompt service. I am a full-time university student (marketing and business) and I speak about Zappos in every class. My classmates all love my shoes as well!! Devoted customer, Roxi B.

I’ve only ordered a few times from Zappos…but I just watched the Nightline piece after noticing the We’re Hiring banner while shopping for back-to-school shoes. I already liked Zappos, but now a fan. I’m converted. You have a loyal customer. I’m starting at Zappos first for my e shopping here on out. You’re creating corporate karma and reaping the benefits. Congrats on doing business, AND treating your employees, the “right way.” Keep telling your story – you can bet I will be. Paige
