Steep Yourself in Honest Tea Culture
Many Honest fans have recently asked us "What is it really like to be an employee at Honest Tea?" Well, we went to the expert-our very own VP of Human Resources, Debra Schwartz to hear about Honest CommuniTEA!
Q: What makes the Honest mission unique?
A: We take our mission seriously--we try and live up to it every day, with everything we do. We recently conducted an employee satisfaction survey and this is what one employee said, "We promote health and wellness and community service. A lot of companies talk the talk, but we actually walk the walk.
Q: What does a typical day at Honest Tea HQ look like?
A: Typical is not a word in my vocabulary! A typical day, if there is one, will consist of a little bit of payroll, preparing Afternoon Tea-our daily newsletter and speaking with employees about what is going on in their lives. I'm constantly working on special projects including the company meeting, HT service day and long-term strategic initiatives. Every day is different, which is exciting.
Q: Describe one of your proudest moments of being part of Honest Tea
A: At our annual company meeting we give out employee awards where employees are recognized by their peers. The room erupts, people are on their feet cheering and clapping-there is an overwhelming sense of family and that we are all in this together. I'm always proud that I'm a part of this hard working group of people and what they have accomplished.
