I’m back from Viva Las Vegas – great trip!   One of the highlights of my trip was getting a tour of the headquarters, and all I can say is WOW! To deliver WOW through service is one of Zappos’ Ten Core Values.

I was amazed at the excitement of the employees, and the fun work environment, from the complimentary cafeteria lunches to the napping room.   It looks like an  awesome place to work! Tony, the CEO, was out of the office, but his desk is among the rest of the employee’s cubicles.

At the end of the tour, everyone  received a complimentary bookbag and  book of their choice  from a collection of books that  Tony personally recommends.   I picked out Good to Great: Why Some Companies Make the Leap… and Others Don’t by Jim Collins. I can’t wait to read it!

Above, that’s a picture of my foot on the Zappos logo on the shuttle that picked us up. See more pics from the Zappos tour and my trip to Vegas on Flickr.

Special thanks to Lori of Las Vegas Net Daily for setting up the tour for us! If you are ever in Vegas, I highlight suggest setting up a tour of Zappos – it’s free and more fun than casino gambling in my opinion! Now I want to tour the distribution center in Kentucky!
