Amazon today featured in LinkedIn’s Top Companies list—an annual list that identifies the most sought-after places to work and grow your career in India. Using data from LinkedIn’s 900 million members, LinkedIn’s Top Companies list is designed to help professionals identify the best companies to grow their careers.
“At Amazon, we love working with passionate, customer-obsessed people from all backgrounds who help build the future,” says Deepti Varma, Vice President, People, eXperience, and Technology, Amazon Stores, India, and Emerging Markets. “We’re proud to be named among LinkedIn’s top companies in India thanks to the contributions of thousands of Amazonians across the country, and we’ll keep working to make every day better for our employees, customers, and partners.”
Removing barriers for talent
At Amazon, our leadership efforts are concentrated around removing barriers for talent to perform at their highest potential, enable them to cross boundaries they may have defined for themselves, encourage them to take risk, to fail and to learn from their actions so they can make high judgement decisions and lead at scale. As an organisation, Amazon continues focusing on customers in a way that allows employees to invent on behalf of customers all the time. The relentless pursuit to set in motion the ‘Talent fly wheel’, empower employees to continuously improve their skills and grow by increasing the scope and opportunity for them to demonstrate performance.
Amazon's comprehensive benefits package
Amazon prioritises employee health and well-being by offering a range of benefits that support employees and their eligible family members, including partners and their children, such as a comprehensive benefits package to all regular, full-time employees, which includes health insurance from an employee’s first day on the job, paid leave for birthing parents, free mental health support. ‘Svasthya’ is an Amazon India wellness initiative where we focus on overall employee health and well-being and employees have a menu of choices available to support their physical, mental/emotional, and financial well-being. Amazon also provides support to employees who are caring for a child with a learning, social, or behavioral challenge, or a developmental disability.
Internal transfer opportunities Amazon employees are also encouraged to enter different roles to take on new challenges and learn new skills. Our internal transfer opportunities and other expanding career-development programs help all employees build their careers. This is another part of our commitment to empower employees through career opportunity and mobility. At Amazon, we believe that diversity and inclusion help us to continuously raise the bar for our employees and our customers. When we talk about diversity at Amazon we include gender, disability, military status, sexual orientation, life experience among others.
Amazon’s culture of inclusion Amazon’s culture of inclusion is reinforced by our Leadership Principles, which remind team members to seek diverse perspectives, learn and be curious, and lead with empathy. We take an inter-sectional approach to the policies, programs, and strategies we create for our employees to build inclusion into our culture.
