They continue to meet the challenges of the changing world of work while working tirelessly to make a positive impact on the lives of their workforce. We are pleased to celebrate and applaud the organizations that have been certified as Top Employers in their respective countries this year.”
The Top Employer certification is one of the world’s most prestigious in the field of human resources management, acknowledging the quality of the work environment, professional development opportunities and programs available to our employees
We strive to offer our employees a safe and inclusive work environment, state-of-the-art locations, career growth opportunities, excellent pay and benefits from day one.
In Italy and Spain, we achieved the certification for the second year in a row, and in France for the third time.
The certification covers all of Amazon’s activities for those countries where we have created tens of thousands of jobs for people from a variety of backgrounds, career aspirations, education, and skill levels – from workers and entry-level positions to engineers, software developers and cloud experts.
Amazon in Poland received the certification for the first time, endorsing our commitment to our fulfillment center employees throughout the country. Since 2014 we have created over 25,000 permanent jobs in Poland providing excellent job opportunities within an inclusive, safe and modern workplace.
In these countries, employees at our logistic centers can also access the Career Choice program, through which the company supports them in accessing training in their field of choice.
At Amazon, we share a culture in which inclusion is the norm. We value gender equality and diversity as a driver of innovation and creativity to serve our customers. More information on our inclusive culture can be found here.
