Amazon has been certified as a Top Employer 2024 in Europe in recognition of our commitment to the development and well-being of our employees. We were given the Top Employers certification for our activities across Europe, including our operations network, corporate offices, customer service, and research and development centres. The European recognition has been awarded to Amazon for the second consecutive year, following a certification process conducted across nine countries: Spain, France, Italy, Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Germany, the UK, and Luxembourg.

The Top Employers Institute is one of the world’s most prestigious certifications in the field of human resources management, acknowledging the commitment of companies to HR topics including people strategy, work environment, talent acquisition, learning, diversity & inclusion, well-being, and more. The Top Employers Institute has certified and recognised over 2,300 Top Employers in 122 countries and regions across five continents.

Jorrit Van der Meulen, VP EU Stores at Amazon, said: “Being recognised as a Top Employer across Europe for the second consecutive year is an incredible honour, recognising our care for the development and well-being of our employees. We are striving to be Earth’s Best Employer, a commitment that guides us every day in finding innovative ways to better serve, support, and develop our employees.”

David Plink, Top Employers Institute CEO, said: “Exceptional times bring out the best in people and organisations. And we have witnessed this in our Top Employers Certification Programme this year: exceptional performance from the certified Top Employers 2024. These employers have always shown that they care for the development and well-being of their people. By doing so, they collectively enrich the world of work. We are proud to announce and celebrate this year’s group of leading people-oriented employers: The Top Employers 2024.”
