Amazon looking forward to hire 55000 people globally - notifies CEO Andy Jassy

Amazon.com Inc is looking forward to hire 55,000 people for high collar job roles globally in the coming months, as notified by Chief Executive Andy Jassy. Out of 55,000 jobs Jassy informed that, over 40,000 will be in the United States, and others will be in countries such as India, Germany and Japan.

 

In his first press interview, Andy Jassy stated that the company requires more manpower to cope up with demand in retail, the cloud and advertising, among other businesses. He informed that the company need a ton of new employees to justify the new bet to launch satellites into orbit to widen broadband access, called Project Kuiper.

Amazon‘s annual job fair is all set to recruit fresh set of employees which will begin from Sept. 15. Jassy thinks that would be the best time for hiring. He said “There are so many jobs during the pandemic that have been displaced or have been altered, and there are so many people who are thinking about different and new jobs.”

Jassy said – “The career fair will be held globally. Amazon hired 22,000 people last year from India, among other locales outside the United States.”

When asked in an interview how he might change Amazon’s demanding workplace culture, Jassy confidently replied doing so via laying a heavy focus on customers and inventiveness.

The positions that would be laid open for recruitment at Amazon include engineering, research science and robotics roles.

Amazon, earlier had a “office-centric culture,” which post the pandemic was reviewed and alterations were made in its vision which then offered workers the opportunity to work for three days a week at its offices in person which would start next year.

Considered as second-biggest private employer in the United States, Amazon onboarded more than 500,000 people in 2020, majorly in warehouse and delivery operations.

The company is largely investing in building more warehouses with an increased pay to attract workers, to match up to the existing demand for home delivery products.
