Amazon Pledges to Upskill Employees Across the U.S.


According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, there are now more job openings than there are unemployed Americans.  And, looking ahead at job growth over the next decade, the Bureau anticipates some of the fastest growing job areas are increasingly in more skilled areas.

Amazon will invest over $700 million to provide upskilling training programs for one in three of its employees across the U.S.

Programs will help Amazonians from all backgrounds access training to move into highly skilled technical and non-technical roles across the company’s corporate offices, tech hubs, fulfillment centers, retail stores, and transportation network, or pursue career paths outside of Amazon.

Ardine Williams, Vice President of Workforce Development at Amazon, shares more information about the company’s new programs.
