Lessons from Uber: How Company Values Impact Your Business and Your People
Uber is a transportation network that operates in over 60 countries around the world and has more than 20,000 employees globally. Founded with a mission to allow people to push a button and get a ride, the company has grown into a transportation platform moving people and goods forward in the world. I had no way of predicting the media storm in 2017 when I joined Uber back in 2015, but looking back I realize that year was the most significant of my career. Being on the other side of it now and having moved on from Uber, I can say my most significant development and learnings as a people professional came at Uber. The lesson I won't forget, and that I carry with me daily in my role at Divvy, is how a seemingly simple act of articulating company values impacts business growth and revenue as well as customer and employee sentiment.
