« Entrepreneuriat, Management & Leadership Advanced Management Amazon Subject 1: Jeff Bezos launched Amazon in 1994 as an internet retailer.

Its headquarters are in Seattle, Washington.

It is part of the GAFAM, an acronym for Google, Apple, Facebook, Amazon, and Microsoft.

Amazon counts over one million employees worldwide.

It is the world's first virtual store.

Amazon is continually creating and providing products to its customers on a regular basis: Amazon Halo, a connected bracelet that analyzes your emotions and physical activity and was released in 2020; Amazon Care was founded in 2019 to help people improve their health.

Key to Amazon: You can check who enters your home and unlock your door remotely using Amazon Key.

The smart city and secure home markets are of interest to Jeff Bezos' organization.

It bought Ring, a linked doorbell firm based in the United States, in 2018.

Not to mention Amazon Music, Amazon Video, Amazon Textiles, and other Amazon services.

Amazon is well-known and famous about how they used to treat their employees so let us dig a little bit deeper in all of that and see what they have decided to put in place for the wellness of the people working there. Amazon has long placed a premium on the health and safety of its employees. They collaborate closely with scientists and specialists in the fields of health and safety. Every day, they undertake thousands of safety inspections in our facilities.

And, as a result of employee feedback on how they might improve employees’ work-life balance, they have made hundreds of adjustments.

WorkingWell, a new program launched by some of Amazon's 6,200 workers committed to worldwide workplace health and safety, is the most recent example.

WorkingWell is a program that employs scientifically proven physical and mental activities, wellness exercises, and healthy eating habits to assist employees recharge and reenergize their bodies and, as a result, lower the chance of injury. Let’s see what went right alongside the launch of the program.

While the majority of the publicity around the WorkingWell rollout has focused on what went wrong, it is critical to first acknowledge what they accomplished right.

This is a comprehensive program that addresses staff needs in addition to physical wellness.

Given the nature of the program and the information provided, they chose initiatives based on relevant data on employee overuse injuries and accidents.

Amazon has also made headlines for having a high rate of suicide thoughts among its employees.

It is necessary to note and appreciate their efforts to foster mindfulness and stress reduction in light of this and the present situation of employee mental health.

They polled their employees about the new wellness app they are launching in order to make these programs more accessible to all employees, regardless of job title or location. Now let’s focus a little bit more on what went wrong.

For a corporation that has been subjected to a great deal of negative press for numerous years owing to its treatment of employees, this wellness approach, while a promising start, has exposed them to even more scrutiny.

Employees are not given paid time to participate in any of these events, according to certain news outlets.

It's a recipe for disaster to implement initiatives without the systematic rules, procedures, and culture to back them up.

Sadly, despite excellent and well-intentioned efforts, the intervention fell short in a number of crucial areas.
