Amazon and Airbnb Culture – Two Approaches to Employee Experience

August 17, 2015by Mike LepisCultural TransformationEmployee Engagement

We are excited to see the discussion about employee experiences that have been in the news. This Sunday’s article in the NYT “Inside Amazon: Wrestling Big Ideas in a Bruising Workplace” about what it is like to work at Amazon has set off the internet and elicited an immediate response from their CEO. If you have not, read the NYT article you should grab a cup of coffee and dive in. It does not paint a pretty picture for the employee experience at Amazon. But, I have to say I’m glad Jeff Bezos acknowledged the article and encouraged employees to escalate to HR or himself any of the callous behaviors captured in the article.
