As part of its ongoing efforts to introduce progressive policies and enable better work-life balance, Amazon India has introduced a new part-time work arrangement policy starting November 2021. The new policy enables employees to avail of reduced working hours in order to focus on personal priorities. Employees can temporarily request to work fewer hours after prior discussions with their managers and HR.
Deepti Varma, HR Director at Amazon India says, “Initiative, motivation, and reliability have truly been the cornerstones of our work culture. We recognize that sometimes personal priorities – health, older parents or parenthood – demand that we scale back from work. The effort here is to give employees the flexibility to bring better balance into their lives.”
The policy is an expression of trust in employees’ professionalism and does not compromise on performance and accountability.
