Over the course of the year, we’ve captured singular moments that collectively tell the larger story of Amazon’s enduring connection with its customers, employees, and communities around the world.

Inventing for customers

Amazonians – from the newest hire to the tenured executive – are obsessing over customers to provide the best possible experience. 2018 offered several new innovations on behalf of our customers.

Supporting Employees

This year Amazon raised its minimum wage to $15 an hour, and announced new headquarters locations. In all, Amazon now has more than 610,000 employees worldwide, including over 250,000 in North America.

Giving Back to Communities

All around the world, Amazon employees give back to the communities where they live and work – from making sure children have a healthy breakfast to start their school day and inspiring students to learn coding, to making it easier for to recycle.
