Amazon Stock Price Today – Amazon HR: ‘Inclusion is the norm for all’
The HR leader also promised to take a closer look at possible differences in how senior managers resolve attrition and issues of low performance. The company will also increase the hiring of Black and women employees and have all employees undergo inclusion training.
“These goals represent the next step in Amazon’s diversity, equity, and inclusion journey, not the final destination,” said Galetti. “It is going to take time and consistent focus to get where we want to be. Additionally, these goals represent only a slice of Amazon’s ongoing DEI work, and they are complemented by goals in various businesses and geographies around the world.”
Galetti said she listens to feedback from employees. “We are committed to fostering a culture in which inclusion is the norm for all Amazonians,” she said. “Tough feedback is always uncomfortable to hear, but their stories remind us that we have more work to do to achieve our goals. This is some of the most important work we have ever done, and we are committed to building a more inclusive and diverse Amazon for the long term.”
