Assignment: Create a one (1) page reflection paper based on the content of the article.
Questions to consider when drafting your paper (you do not have to use any of these):
- What aspects of Amazon’s culture give it a competitive advantage and why?
- What aspects of Amazon’s culture can cause internal issues for the organization and why?
- What is the cost of attrition both short and long term?
- How does Jeff Bezos contribute to the culture of Amazon?
- Why would some employees thrive at Amazon where others would struggle?
- Does the people management strategy of compassion and care make good business sense?
- Is Amazon’s employer brand as reported by the New York Times sustainable? Why or why not?
- Can or does Amazon’s philosophy of how management treats employees be reflected in how Amazon employees treat customers?
- Do customers care about the way employers treat their staff?
- What are the pros and cons of pushing staff to be innovative in Amazon’s model?
When drafting your paper, pretend you are submitting your thoughts to a Senior Leader within your organization. As such, you want the information to be concise and to be written as professionally as possible. You do not have to write a traditional paper/essay; use of bullet points are fair game.
