Amazon is a large American multinational corporation that focuses on e-commerce, cloud computing, and artificial intelligence. It is one of the world’s largest online retailers and provides a wide range of products and services, including electronics, books, clothing, food, etc. In addition to its e-commerce business, Amazon also offers services such as Amazon Prime, which provides members with access to free shipping, streaming video and music, and other benefits.
The company has grown significantly over the years, and it now operates in many countries around the world. It is difficult to say exactly how many employees Amazon has, as the company is constantly growing and hiring new employees, but according to the data from Statista, the company currently counts over 1.5 million employees worldwide.
Like any other successful company, Amazon is dedicated to ensuring that its employees are happy and satisfied with their work. By offering a variety of benefits and chances for professional growth and career advancement, the company is able to attract and keep top talent, which is crucial to its success.
But the company recently launched a program that will benefit its employees and, for sure, make some of them happy, just in time for Christmas. Amazon has asked its customers every time they receive a package to show their appreciation for the drivers by saying, “Alexa, thank my driver.” During this promotional period, with each “thank you,” drivers will also receive $5 at no cost to the customer.
But the purpose of the program is much more noble, as the company said the five drivers who get the most “thank you’s” will receive $10,000, and an additional $10,000 will be donated to their charity of choice. Amazon’s initial plan was to keep the program active until December 21, or until one million customers took part, so the program ended just one day after its launch as the second condition was met.
