As our customers, communities and employees navigate new ways of living and working, Amazon employees and leaders across Europe have a powerful message to share: “We’re all in this together.”

Whether you’re a parent juggling bath time and home schooling, living on your own, experiencing the loss of a loved one or worried about the future – we want to help everyone to feel connected.

That’s why Amazon employees have created a new video series sharing their personal stories, tips and practical ways to deal with new challenges.

The initiative originated with Amazon’s employee affinity group Women@ UK and was led by Jacqui Chin, Director, EU Consumables, and Brigitte Ricou-Belan, Director, Entertainment Media and Consumer Electronics.

“Watching these videos, we were reminded how everybody faces a unique set of challenges,” explains Brigitte, “whether that’s childcare, living alone, caring for a family member, or trying to plan for the future. At the same time, we are all working hard to find solutions that work for us and our families. That’s something we all have in common.”

These tips and ideas cover everything from how to juggle work and home schooling, learning new hobbies, and even how to take over remote leadership of a team while confined to a holiday home in the Italian mountains.

To find out more, we also spoke to a few of the Amazon employees who took part.
