Enhance Innovation and Improve Security like Zappo’s

March 28, 2013

Zappo’s is known for having a culture that spawns innovation. They do this in unconventional ways for an online retailer, such as asking their employees to come into the office rather than working from home all the time. But their methods seem to get pretty good results, as they’re one of the newest and most highly regarded companies. A recent article on Fortune Magazine reveals other Zappo’s productivity and innovation secrets.

But one of their innovation secrets is a great boost to security too! Zappo’s requires all employees to go through the front door. “Even though it’s more inconvenient, we believe this helps our culture because it creates more opportunities for employees to have serendipitous interactions by colliding with each other in the main lobby.” That lets you cut costs and improve physical security by letting everyone monitor for tailgaters and those who don’t belong. It’s a great way to sell security as business friendly when you need a quick win in your security program!
