Zappos provides a life coach for employees. Here’s a YouTube video by Noomii highlighting in their words, “The World’s Greatest Job Perk.” The interview is with Zappos Head Life Coach Augusta Scott @zapposcoach:

In the words of Taylor Scott in his blog OneMoreStepRevolution:

Augusta Scott is the Zappos Coach. She is the internal, on-site company “coach”. She helps Zapponians with…anything…yes…anything they would like to improve in their lives; personally or professionally.

The program is designed to keep the employees happy, feeling productive; feeling like they matter, and feeling significant both at work and in their personal lives. The idea is that if Zappos team members can work through some of their trials, tribulations, issues, and/or personal/professional goals with Augusta, that will free up their mental capacity to really crush it, in their roles at work. As an added bonus, they get to achieve (or at least work toward) making their dreams come true…personally & professionally.

Today’s Lagniappe (a little something extra thrown in for good measure) – How about the Boss and John Fogerty asking the question, “Put me in Coach?”:

The Green Goldfish Project is a quest to find 1,001 examples of marketing lagniappe for employees. Green goldfish are the little signature extras given to employees. They help differentiate a company, increase employee retention and drive positive WoM.
