January 25, 2021 – Amazon obtains the Top Employer 2021 certification, which validates the quality of the work environment and human resources programs offered to Amazon employees in Italy. The Top Employer certification is granted to Amazon for all its activities in Italy, including those linked to the amazon.it website, logistics activities, cloud services with Amazon Web Services, etc.

This new certification highlights Amazon’s initiatives to enable employees to start and develop their careers in a fulfilling work environment.

Top Employers Institute CEO David Plink says: “Despite the challenging year we have experienced (which has certainly made an impact on organizations around the globe), Amazon has continued to demonstrate the power of putting their people first in the workplace. We are proud to share this year’s announcement and congratulate the organizations who have been certified in their respective countries through the Top Employers Institute program.”

The program has certified and recognized more than 1,600 Top Employers in 120 countries/regions across five continents.

Salvatore Iorio, Regional Senior HR Manager at Amazon Italia Logistica, stated: “We are proud of this achievement and mostly of our employees across the country that support our activities every day. This is a recognition that in this particular year is even more important because it rewards the great work done to tackle the pandemic and ensuring our employees to continue working in a safe environment. We would like to thank them especially for the incredible work done during the health emergency”.

In 10 years, Amazon has become a relevant job creator in Italy and now has more than 9.500 employees in the country. These include jobs for people from all backgrounds, career aspirations, education and skill levels – from engineers, software developers and cloud experts, to workers reentering the job market and entry-level positions. Whether you work in the city, the country, or in between, Amazon’s jobs come with excellent pay from day one: with an entry gross monthly salary of €1,550, Amazon’s salaries are among the highest of the logistic industry. These positions also offer comprehensive benefits and great career and up-skilling opportunities, including innovative programs like Career Choice, which pre-pays 95% of tuition and books for courses chosen by employees, and industry-leading parental leave programs.
