Passionate, engaged employees are an important part of what makes Amazon successful, which is why we strive to be Earth’s best employer and safest place to work in the industries in which we operate. Every day, we work to create a safer, more productive, higher performing, more diverse, and more just work environment for our employees. We bring these ambitions to life through programs that touch many aspects of the employee experience.
We offer competitive wages, and comprehensive benefits that begin on day one of employment. Our suite of benefits include health care coverage, paid parental leave, ways to save for the future, paid college tuition, and other resources to improve health and well-being.
Additionally, Amazon ranks #2 on Fortune magazine’s World’s Most Admired Companies 2023 list and #8 on the Drucker Institute and WSJ’s Best Managed Companies in the U.S. 2022 list. Amazon was also selected by Forbes as one of the World’s Best Employers in 2022.

Sustainability Ambassadors are sustainability-minded Amazon employees who work to amplify our global, companywide efforts at the local level.
Ambassadors across the world lead projects on Amazon campuses and create virtual engagement opportunities to inspire fellow employees, both at work and at home. The program also serves as a community for sharing best practices among teams in different settings and locations.
Our ability to innovate on behalf of our customers relies on the perspectives and knowledge of people from all backgrounds. We believe that building a culture that is welcoming and inclusive is integral to people doing their best work and is essential to what we can achieve as a company.
Our vision is to create inclusive experiences everywhere. Amazon has changed the world through its focus on the customer—and we are approaching diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) and accessibility the same way. Our strategy focuses on using technology wherever possible to create inclusive experiences for employees, customers, and communities around the world.

We offer learner-centered safety training that empowers our employees and leaders to take ownership of safety, succeed and grow in their roles, and understand how to stay safe on the job. We also invest in technologies, controls, and solutions to reduce and eliminate safety risks for our employees, partners, and communities.
