Eric S. Yuan, founder and CEO of Zoom, is ranked as the best CEO in the world to work for; according to Glassdoor's last annual survey. Before beginning his own business, Yuan spent a lot of time at his now competitor, WebEx, meeting with clients who weren't pleased with their video conferencing systems.
He felt it was time to create a more dependable and effective technology. That's how Zoom's story began. The firm now has over 1,000 employees and is valued at over $1 billion.
Yuan himself, does not consider success in terms of making money or being popular. The most important thing, he says, is to be passionate and enthusiastic about your work. Good firms are those that focus on consumers and can quickly respond to changing circumstances!
To show our admiration for Yuan’s work ethic and customer focus, we bring you his top 5 quotes about success and motivation in life...
“We really don’t look at our competitors. The market is big. If you focus too much on competitors, you can lose focus on the customer. If we make our customers happier, we are going to win.”
“We are very committed to listening to our customers’ feedback and making changes to deliver happiness to our users.”
“Empathy, humanity and support for each other is more important than revenue, than growth.”
“I really want to build something to make the world a better place.”
“I don’t mind working long hours, because I enjoy doing that. The way to make myself happy is to work long hours.”
