How It Feels When You're Here

Our People

Orit Ziv

Vice President of People | StubHub, an eBay business | San Francisco, CA
Think of any team in the world. If they all had the same skills and capabilities, they would never win.

When Orit Ziv first became a senior leader at eBay, she had a realization: you can’t rely on shorthand when it comes to addressing diversity and inclusion. Although she was one of the only women at the table, it wasn't gender that made her feel different. It was language. “I was the only non-native English speaker there. That's where diversity affected me. I remember saying to my CEO, ‘There are so many moments in meetings I think to myself, if I could only say something in Hebrew, I could have a much more significant impact.”

As the Vice President of People for StubHub, Orit partners with the company’s Global Head of D&I, Rachel Williams, to drive an inclusive culture. One cornerstone initiative is creating candid forums for open discussion in the workplace. “Everyone should feel comfortable asking questions—with good intent—that otherwise might be labeled as politically incorrect,” Rachel says. “StubHub should reflect the diversity of our fanbase — the millions who attend sporting, music and theater events each year.”

She adds, “Think of any team in the world. If they all had the same skills and capabilities, they would never win.”

Sometimes people think ‘different’ equals ‘wrong.’ But different isn’t wrong. It’s about making eBay a better place for everyone.

At eBay Korea, a committee of millennial employees, called the Young Board, focuses on reducing the generation gap between older and younger employees at eBay Korea. Kim Lee Kyung believes the group empowers employees to voice concerns and issues they might usually keep to themselves.

The team recently launched a campaign for “flextime,” an arrangement where employees set their own work hours during the day as opposed to a traditionally rigid schedule. Young Board believes flextime will improve culture and efficiency in the workplace. Employees can choose to spend time with family, further their education or just squeeze in more gym time. Slowly but surely, the new concept is catching on. Where just 10% of employees had used flextime at the start of 2017, today, more than 35% have enrolled in the program.

For Young Board member Jin Ho Yoo their efforts are more than just redefining work hours. It’s redefining workplace culture. “Sometimes people think ‘different’ equals ‘wrong.’ But different isn’t wrong. It’s about making eBay a better place for everyone.”
