Why Blog?

     Companies all over the world use blogs to communicate effectively with their audience. These blogs may include information about who they are and what their company is all about.  Blogging is a great way for companies to stay in touch with our ever-changing society and for people to learn about what our world has to offer.

*Linkedin

By reading this blog, I can see that forming good employee relationships and an enjoyable work place is very important to the Linkedin company.  I truly believe that a positive workplace is one of the main components in being a successful company.  If the employees are comfortable and confident, they will take pride in their position and always put forth their full effort. This blog is a helpful create of communication because it informs people on the average day of an intern and shows the benefits that can go into a positive workplace.

*Zappos Insights

When thinking about a company and success, the thoughts that come to mind are customer happiness and knowledgeable employees.  Zappos looked further into what really was important. Focusing on core values, culture, purpose, passion, and the experience of the customer are all things necessary in true success! According to Zappos, many entrepreneurs leave a company shortly after achieving their goal. Through Zappos success, other companies have been inspired to keep these values in mind, in hopes of inspiring employees so they want to stay and continue making the company a success!
*Whole Foods Market
It’s important to try and keep our environment healthy and clean for the future years to come. Therefore, recycling is a big part of our world today. You may ask yourself, “Is there a fun way to recycle?” The answer to this question is yes. The Whole Foods blog is full of Do It Yourself (DIY) projects that make recycling fun.  This blog also contains more information about how to pack a healthy meal, the key components to creating a comfortable room, how to cook for picky eaters, and much more.  This blog includes information that is helpful for any age and continues to update with new ideas that are designed to make life fun and easy while keeping in mind the overall health of our world.
