Spencer Rascoff, CEO of Zillow Group, recently launched a podcast called Office Hours, where he chats with other CEOs about what leadership means in the digital age. His first guest was Dick Costolo, former CEO of Twitter. They both agree that there’s “no such thing as overinvesting in corporate culture,” and Spencer expanded on his thoughts in a commentary piece for Fortune:
While standing desks and organic snacks are appreciated by Zillow Group employees, these perks aren’t what inspire and motivate them to do their best work. It’s our mission of creating the largest, most trusted and vibrant home-related marketplace in the world, our core values of moving fast, thinking big and collaborating, and our recognition that each of us is a whole person and lives for more than just our jobs. We’ve invested in these cultural elements since the beginning, and they’ve paid off.
