Since Zenput’s early beginnings in 2012 it’s been important to create and maintain an environment where people feel connected to one another and the company’s direction a place where employees can be themselves, and enjoy the journey together.

Building a great company is a marathon, not a sprint, so the journey is everything

And, what makes the most important part of the journey? The crème de la crème? (yeah, we like food a lot here - but more on that in a future post) The main ingredient? . . .

The people.

Which is why it gives us great pride to be recognized, for the third year in a row, as one of Inc.’s Best Workplaces! This award is especially meaningful since winners are selected based on anonymous survey feedback provided by employees, the people.

According to Inc., all winners have something special in common: a culture that encourages people in a way that allows teams to stay strong in an office or in one’s home office — even if that’s the kitchen table.

Zenput’s priority focus is building and maintaining a strong culture across our hybrid workforce, with our San Francisco, Atlanta, and Guadalajara teams, and our remote employees. We come to work every day fired-up to reshape what’s possible and to make a big difference in the lives of our customers, and put them on a steep new success trajectory.

Our Team’s Journey Together

What makes us truly savor Inc.’s recognition is the anonymous feedback voluntarily provided by our employees that closely aligns with the values we strive to uphold. And because the journey isn’t linear, these insights will help us continue to set the bar high and let our people define what makes our workplace great.

Zenput has a strong value-driven culture that permeates how we approach tackling goals and solving problems, and how we engage with customers and one another. These values serve as our recipe for success at Zenput. We stay hungry (not just for delicious food), bring conviction, and show empathy while building systems and doing the right thing all while enjoying the journey together.
