Better Jobs with Companies That Care

August 16, 2017

Look, we're going to be straight with you: this week sucked. It sucked hard. Normally we're glass half full kind of gals, but turn on the news (or your computer, or your phone, or stick your head out from under the covers) and negativity is rampant. It hits us at every curve and it's difficult to bring the levity we're normally known for. But every once in awhile, it's ok to let your guard down and let the world know you're human. Y'know, a human with emotions and feelings and a soul. We weep for lives lost, opportunities lost, ground-gained lost. We weep for us all. Take care of yourselves, and take care of each other. It's times like these that bring the important stuff into perspective. We pray the future brings brighter days, and we won't stop fighting until it does.

FEATURED COMPANY THAT CARES: ZENDESK

Zendesk builds software to power customer relationships, but that's not the only power they produce. This benefit trounces all the others we've seen to date (and we've seen many): on-the-job napping, anyone? Providing ample PTO and comfy couches, you won't be getting behind-the-back side-eye here for catching a little snooze. Don't believe us? Check them out and see for yourself (along with a plethora of other hard-to-beat benefits, too!)

9 Tips for Hosting a Successful, Collaborative Hackathon, from Quip

A company that is built around offering modern collaboration software needs to believe in the power of bringing people together.

Luckily, that's just what Quip is all about.

Their annual three-day hackathon Quiprupt is an example of what collaboration looks like not just as a product offering but also as a core tenet of company culture. We asked participants from Quiprupt 2021 to tell us about their experience coming together to ship cool stuff—and how Quip's culture sets them up to be able to find meaningful work while building better products.

We know from the examples set by our coworkers and friends just how good moms are at juggling competing responsibilities and priorities. ("If you want to make sure something gets done, give it to a busy person" would be even more accurate if it was changed to "give it to a working mom.")

So this Mother's Day, we decided to ask working moms at our partner companies about the secret sauce that connects parenting experience to being better and happier at work.
