Why is this a core value for the company? Because we pay people like you for your opinions. If you aren’t here to contribute then why are you here at all?
We all learn from those around us, but it’s hard to learn if people are not willing to speakUP and share what they have to say. This isn’t about you being the life of the party or, alternatively, being the person who sucks air out of the room. Rather, when you have the choice to stay silent and go about your day or instead make your impact felt, you speakUP.
SpeakingUP can be doing so on behalf of customers; it can be doing so to make the employee experience better; it can be doing so to make the business operate better; call out bullshit; make the code base better; our marketing campaigns more creative; our efficiency in the DC’s hum a little louder, among so many others. In all instances, the people who speak up help us make thredUP more effective. Your ability to make a difference at thredUP is often directly related to your willingness to speak up and be heard.
