We know you’ve been wondering: How does Amazon do it?! They keep growing in service lines and capacity. They keep delivering reliability and convenience, offering new options before customers even demand it. How is this possible? Are they using any smart methods that might apply to your business?
Senior Principle Engineer, John Darrow, has grown with Amazon for 21 years. He is responsible for training new software engineers and other employees that impact Amazon’s distribution channels. From the time you hit “Place Your Order” on Amazon.com to the time your item arrives on your doorstep, your item is in John Darrow’s domain. He routinely manages approximately 2300 people, from engineers to field technicians and has recruited and trained thousands.
What can your company learn from Amazon’s methods of recruiting and training a young, tech-savvy workforce? What elements exist in Amazon’s corporate culture that make these efficiencies possible? How do they find, recruit and retain all these workers? Learn from Amazon’s top tips and you’ll be able to integrate their methods into your own employee recruitment and retainment strategies.
At SOBC 2019, John Darrow will also give us a sneak peek at new distribution channels that Amazon has in development.
