LAS VEGAS (RPRN) 01/21/10 — Zappos.com Does It Again; Ranks #15 on FORTUNE Magazine's List of "100 Best Companies to Work For"

 - Zappos.com, a leader in online apparel and footwear sales, announced today that the company, for the second year in a row, was named to FORTUNE Magazine's Annual "100 Best Companies to Work For" list, ranking #15 on the 2010 list. Last year, Zappos.com made its debut as 2009's highest-ranking newcomer at #23 on the list.

"Yay! We're #15 this year! We feel very FORTUNE-ate to have made the list!" said Zappos.com CEO, Tony Hsieh, upon hearing the news that Zappos.com made the Fortune list for the second year in a row.

Company culture continues to fuel its success and played a major factor in Zappos' steady rise on this year's FORTUNE list. Zappos.com's unique culture is shaped by the following ten core values:

1. Deliver WOW Through Service

2. Embrace and Drive Change

3. Create Fun and A Little Weirdness

4. Be Adventurous, Creative, and Open-Minded

5. Pursue Growth and Learning

6. Build Open and Honest Relationships With Communication

7. Build a Positive Team and Family Spirit

8. Do More With Less

9. Be Passionate and Determined

10. Be Humble

FORTUNE Deputy Managing Editor Hank Gilman says, "The most important considerations for this year's list were hiring and the ways in which companies are helping their employees weather the recession. All 100 companies on our list are currently hiring, many of them aggressively, leading to more than 96,000 open job positions expected in the next year."
