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!)

How These Companies Are Celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month

According to a recent study, anti-Asian hate crimes have risen 150% since the pandemic started. But these acts of violence are not new — they are part of a much larger history of anti-Asian racism and violence in the U.S.

That makes celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month (which was named a month-long celebration in May by Congress in 1992 "to coincide with two important milestones in Asian/Pacific American history: the arrival in the United States of the first Japanese immigrants on May 7, 1843 and contributions of Chinese workers to the building of the transcontinental railroad, completed May 10, 1869") this year all the more important.
