Amazon increasing workforce in Las Vegas

Amazon is increasing its workforce in Las Vegas by creating 125 additional corporate jobs in the city. The company has recently opened a new office in Las Vegas. This expansion will allow Amazon to more than double its corporate workforce in the area – with teams based in the new Las Vegas office supporting the company’s human resources organisation.

“We are excited to create more jobs in Las Vegas and continue to invest in the city and its people,” said Tami Dennis, site lead of Amazon’s Las Vegas office. “We’ve opened the doors to our new office and we’re looking forward to meeting more of the city’s terrific talent as we look to support the diverse needs of our workforce.”

Amazon’s Las Vegas office currently has more than 100 employees specialising in managing leave of absence and accommodation services for the company’s employees across the United States. The teams working in Las Vegas are human resources specialists who act as the first point of contact for employees requesting a job accommodation, including American Sign Language (ASL) interpreters for Amazon employees and candidates applying for jobs at the company. Amazon is one of the only tech companies in the US that has full-time ASL interpreters to support deaf or hard of hearing employees.

To mark the company’s latest investment in Nevada, Amazon is donating $100,000 to two food bank partners to aid in the fight against childhood hunger. The donation supports the Three Square Food Bank in Las Vegas and the Food Bank of Northern Nevada in Reno – both of which serve children and families in communities where Amazon has fulfilment centres.

“Amazon’s generous donation to support the fight against childhood hunger will help us reach deeper into our community with additional resources for children and their families,” said Michelle Beck, chief development officer of Three Square Food Bank in Las Vegas. “The need is great. In Southern Nevada, one in five children lives in a home that is food insecure. With support from community partners like Amazon, we are addressing this statistic head on.”

“As Amazon continues to grow in Nevada, the company finds impactful opportunities to give back to the communities where its employees live and work,” said Ashley Wedlund, site leader of one of Amazon’s North Las Vegas fulfilment centres. “In addition to today’s donation, Amazon makes frequent, in-kind product donations throughout the year. We are proud to support the amazing work these organisations do in our communities and we are grateful for their commitment to support children and families.”
