We are continually looking for ways to further strengthen our culture of inclusion and diversify our workforce.
Our $700 million commitment will help pilot, launch, and scale training programs to upskill employees in our corporate offices, tech hubs, fulfillment centers, retail stores, and transportation network, providing access to skills that will help them move into more highly skilled roles within or outside of Amazon.
The American workforce is changing. There is a greater need for technical skills in the workplace than ever before. Amazon is no exception – we want to hire, develop, and retain the best talent in order to continue to invent on behalf of our customers.
Our mission is to be Earth’s most customer-centric company. This is what unites Amazonians across teams and geographies as we are all striving to delight our customers and make their lives easier one innovative product, service, and idea at a time.
An op-ed from UpSkill America at The Aspen Institute: At UpSkill America, we study the ways in which employers are investing in the education, training and development of their workers and then work with other companies to adopt those practices as they create, expand or improve their own upskilling programs.
