“Zest – the courage to live fully, with excitement and eagerness”

Yvon Golbach & Caroline Thomas Founder and partner @ ZestForWork

Nowadays, success is personal: it’s different for everyone.
Zest for Work‘s mission is to create workplaces full of zest in which personal and business success go hand in hand. In which individuals take their careers into their own hands. In which the focus is on healthy, equal working relationships between employee and manager.

We help your people and your organization excel in the current work context, without compromising productivity, employability and long-term vitality. They are happy, you are happy. It’s as simple as that.

We can’t do this alone! We work with a network of highly qualified trainers and advisors. Our experts have years of experience and offer innovative and scientifically based workshops, coaching and advice.

How we do it?

Zest for Work cares about the customers. About you. We know you’re busy too, which is why we’re flexible and glad to take things off your plate. We are transparent and dare to discuss difficult themes. We work with humor and a touch of zest, making sure that change is actually fun. We work evidence-based and only use concepts we strongly believe in.

Zest literally means: enthusiasm, eagerness, energy. That’s what we stand for. We are personally involved in what we do, do not shy away from a challenge and want to ignite you with our positive energy.

We are a  calm business. We cultivate our positive energy by being a calm company – one that is not fuelled by stress, impossible promises, ever increasing profits or late nights of work.

Our values

Focus on QUALITY = There is no substitute for quality and value, it is at the center of our business. Zest is determined to only offer solutions that are evidence-based through highly skilled professionals who are experts in what they do. Being calm creates the space we need to thoroughly think, focus and be fully present for our clients.

Full of ZEST  = We work with great enthusiasm, excitement, and energy. We approach work and life as an adventure and approach every client with a discovery mindset. We go the extra mile to tackle every new challenge while keeping calm and laughing a lot while doing so. We are fun to work with and want this workstyle to be contagious.

Genuine CARE = We care genuinely and wholeheartedly for people. Without genuine care, no relationship will last sustainably and in doing so we build long-term mutual partnerships. Only through radical self-care and a calm business approach can we stay as zesty as we are today.

FREEDOM of choice = Without freedom of choice there can be no true ownership or autonomy. We own our work and take responsibility for it. Our words can be trusted, we are transparent and have the courage to make difficult decisions in order to keep focusing on what we believe in. To stay free and autonomous we need to be financially healthy and independent.
