Amazon second on LinkedIn's Annual Top Companies List

LinkedIn has ranked Amazon number two on its US Top Companies list, which recognises companies that attract and retain top talent. LinkedIn’s second Annual Top Companies list ranked companies based on data from LinkedIn’s over 500 million members. Amazon gives benefits like health insurance, disability insurance and retirement savings plans to its employees.

“I believe the biggest reason that the best talent in the world wants to work and stay at Amazon is our unique culture of innovation and customer obsession. Thank you to our hundreds of thousands of employees who bring this culture to life and make sure every day at Amazon is Day 1,” said Beth Galetti, SVP of human resources at Amazon.

In the past year alone, Amazon has committed to creating more than 100,000 new, full-time, full-benefit jobs in the US, hiring 25,000 veterans and military spouses, and training 10,000 active-duty service members, veterans and military spouses in cloud computing.

Amazon provides employees with highly-competitive pay, health insurance, disability insurance, retirement savings plans and company stock. The company also offers up to 20 weeks of paid leave and innovative benefits such as leave share and ramp back, which give new parents flexibility with their growing families. Leave share lets employees share their Amazon paid leave with their spouse or domestic partner if their spouse’s employer doesn’t offer paid leave.

Ramp back gives new moms additional control over the pace at which they return to work. Just as with Amazon’s health care plan, these benefits are egalitarian - they’re the same for fulfillment centre and customer service employees as they are for Amazon’s most senior executives. (SV)
