Zipline, the operations platform that powers retail’s most complex work, received Great Place to Work® Certification in both the US and Canada for another year. Great Place to Work is the global authority on workplace culture, employee experience, and the leadership behaviors proven to deliver market-leading revenue and increased innovation.
81% of employees at Zipline say it is a great place to work compared to 57% of employees at a typical U.S.-based company.
96% say that when you join the company, you are made to feel welcome. 93% believe they are treated as a full member here regardless of position.
At Zipline, we’ve set out to transform how retail operates by making it easier for employees to do their jobs. To go beyond being a tool for communication and store execution and build a path for field workers to be more successful throughout their lives.
Because of our deep roots in retail, we have made it our business to make the retail business better. As the largest private-sector employer in America, retail provides freedom that other careers do not. It gives people the flexibility to develop their education or spend time taking care of family. It’s also the ideal launching ground as a “first job” for nearly 25% of the population. Despite that, retail workers are routinely underserved, continuously underpaid, and subject to burnout and high turnover. Retail workers are disproportionately women (48%) and disproportionately people of color (33%).
The DNA of Zipline is employee engagement. We’ve set out to spread the magic to retail frontlines, and we believe that associates are the answer. Boosting employee engagement is key to creating a culture of connection, ultimately empowering retailers to carry out the brand’s mission and fostering store execution.
Change starts from within organizations. Ultimately, our core mission to better retail workers’ lives has shaped the way we constantly work to create an incredible working environment here at Zipline!
Zipline’s team is a quickly growing group of humans, around the globe, all working to streamline and simplify store communications and operations. We want to take the grind out of the retail grind.
