This is how we roll

We’re championing a new era of employee engagement through technology. To do this, everyone at Zest needs to be moving to the same beat.

This page is all about who we are.

Our vision

We’re championing a new era of employee engagement through technology. 

In our vision, employee engagement goes beyond benefits administration and breaks away from a one-size fits all approach. 

We believe in personalization and customization, allowing you to offer benefits packages that cater to the unique needs and preferences of each employee. By treating each employee as an individual, we’ll unlock their full potential and build a deeper level of engagement.

With our platform, we’re building a future where employees are at the heart of every decision and organisations understand that employee engagement is not a one-time thing but an ongoing activity. 

We believe that the right technology acts as an enabler of all this, allowing you to continuously improve and adapt your benefits offering to your employees. Through our technology, we want to empower organisations of all sizes and industries to create a workplace culture where employees feel valued, supported and motivated.

Our values

We’re no ordinary business. We’re a vibrant and passionate team that dares to dream differently about improving employee engagement and well-being. 

We thrive on working with our colleagues, partners and customers to come up with fresh ideas, and we relish the chance to crack on and deliver them for our customers. 

And when it comes to problem-solving, we’re unstoppable dynamos. We love the thrill of tackling challenges head-on and creating the absolute best product out there. 

We bring our best zest selves to work. 

We pride ourselves on being straight-talking and have a no-holds-barred attitude to taking responsibility. 

If we say we’re going to do something, it gets done. Whether it’s delivering on promises to customers or colleagues, or hitting deadlines for building an integration or a new feature, we are 100% all-in. 

If we’re going to hold ourselves accountable for delivering what we promise, then our communication must be crystal clear. We speak our minds but do so with honesty and respect. 

We’re confident in our abilities, but we don’t let it go to our heads. We are a trustworthy, grounded team of humble superstars.

We may take our work seriously, but that doesn’t mean we can’t have fun while doing it. 

We build bonds, connecting with our colleagues, customers and partners, emphasising teamwork, respect, and togetherness. We stick together like glue. 

We do our best work when we feel safe, calm, and connected, that’s why we make time to bring our employees and departments together to relax, unwind and have a giggle.

Taking care of our well-being is just as important as taking care of our customers, and we believe that if we’re not enjoying our work, then something’s gone wrong.

We go above and beyond to make sure our customers get nothing but the best.

Whether it’s our amazing tech, dedicated implementation experts, or our friendly customer service team, we leave no stone unturned and no question unanswered in our ambition to offer the best product and service on the market. 

Customers can trust our technology. It’s been developed, tested, proven and accredited by experts. Because our standards are sky-high, our platform has won us (and many of our customers) a tonne of awards. We always want a bigger trophy cabinet! 

HR teams can trust Zest to boost employee engagement and well-being over the long term and make their workforce shine like never before.
