I have a Babybel and some mini pretzels for an afternoon pick me up. I listen to music while I run reports. Mode helps me understand volume, trends and my teams service quality. I’ve been known to bop to Forgot About Dre when I’m concentrating intensely.
This weekly sync is the perfect opportunity for us all to align on what we're focusing on, how we can help one and other, and plan for the week ahead.
A few leaders and I are working on developing a job rotation program here at Zenefits, so we meet to talk about next steps before the launch. We are excited about giving our employees more of an opportunity to help nail down their career paths.
Regardless of what you call it, continual, collaborative innovation is useful for any business. Freeing up time for creativity is key to a thriving, growing business.
In my role, I really like the detective work that I get to put into solving a case. Also, if I unearth an issue on the Zenefits side, I enjoy working with product to ensure we can improve and not make the same hiccup moving forward.
We really wanted to end the hackathon with a fully functional app that we could use right away to better manage our 1:1 meetings.
I reply to carriers first to ensure they get the information needed to process any requests, then review any client emails that need attention.
The team works well together and does a great job of asking questions and relying on one another for support. We are fun, unique, and eager to learn.
People enjoy working hard and helping one another in their current jobs. There is a unique sense of internal support at Zenefits and is a really special thing to be a part of.
When everything is up and running, I reply to clients with inquiries in our email queues and follow up on any outstanding client inquiries from the previous day.
I jump into the first one-on-one for the day. During this time, I ask them about how their day is going, look into their stats for the previous two weeks, and provide guidance on any outstanding issues.
We take the "stand up" part of this meeting seriously, so I've had a few laughs and funny looks through the glass since I'm standing in a room by myself on a video call!
This month, we’re thrilled to welcome Pat Wadors to the Zenefits Board of Directors. A senior-level people and talent executive, Pat brings a unique practitioner point of view to the five-person board and extends its diverse mix of HR technology, operations, engineering, and investment leadership expertise.
I get into the Tempe, AZ office and set up my laptop at my desk. I always start my morning with cold brew from our Press Coffee keg before I review my emails.

I'm excited to learn from the amazing leaders at Zenefits, and definitely all about our new products and how they can support businesses everywhere.
Small and mid-size businesses are the real backbone of our economy, yet often overlooked and underserved. I'm thrilled that every day I'll have a chance to learn from successful, smart business owners and their teams about how they not only keep the lights on, but grow despite tough challenges. Telling these stories is what drives me.
I look up to my grandmother, because even at 85 she's active and always learning. She recently taught herself how to use Instagram and she's already a pro!
For my role models, I have two categories that I consider. First and foremost, my family, and secondarily, from a professional standpoint, I admire Gary Vaynerchuk.

The more time I spend here, the more virtues I seem to imbibe from Zenefits - a prospect that I’m excited to see grow and develop.
Onboarding a new hire is an incredibly complex process that requires very sensitive personal information, so it’s imperative that we continue making this business experience the most secure that it can be.
While many people might think this, company culture is not just a trendy catchphrase. Businesses that take the time to instill a strong company culture will see their returns in spades through attracting great talent, inspiring great work, and uniting employees around a shared vision that they feel connected to. A streamlined onboarding experience through Zenefits is the first step in that employee journey!
