Amazon believes it needs more staff at its offices in London, Manchester, Edinburgh and Cambridge. Employees can also start working for Amazon Web Services and Operations Company. The announcement will bring Amazon’s UK workforce to 55,000 by the end of 2021.
Anxiety has been rapidly expanding recently. Amazon employed about 500,000 people worldwide last year, bringing its total workforce to 1.3 million at the end of March. That’s not all. On Thursday, Amazon said it needed another 75,000 new distribution and distribution center employees in North America. It was also announced that an additional $ 100 would be available to vaccinated Amazon employees.
Amazon is not the only US company offering a vaccine bonus. Retail chains such as Dollar General, Croker and Target have already offered additional benefits to vaccinated employees in the United States. In doing so, companies hope that companies will make themselves more interesting as many U.S. companies are looking for new employees. Amazon offers a bonus of up to $ 1000 for anyone joining the company. The technology company also increased pay for new employees.
