SPANX, Inc. is a dynamic women's brand that has revolutionized an industry and changed the way women around the world get dressed. When SPANX founder and CEO, Sara Blakely, invented footless pantyhose, she got her foot in the door, but the inspiration to continue inventing was driven by her passion to make things better and more comfortable for women. Today, SPANX is a powerhouse lifestyle brand, offering both innerwear solutions and figure-flattering outerwear, constantly identifying and solving problems from a women’s point of view. With smarter, more comfortable, must-haves including shapewear, denim, bras, undies, leggings, activewear and hosiery, SPANX elevates women through product and empowers them to look and feel their best.
Additional Culture Details
When Spanx founder Sara Blakely was young, her father would ask her at the dinner table, “What did you fail at this week?” After sharing any failures she encountered that day, she’d receive encouragement from her father to keep trying. Today, that lesson is still infused into the culture at Spanx -- to be bold and take risks, because removing the fear of failure can lead to great things. Employees at Spanx are encouraged to work on projects outside their department and team activities are designed to inspire courageousness. Plus, the company doesn’t take itself too seriously! The Atlanta headquarters is home to punny meeting spaces with names like Booby Trap and Brallywood.
