Human Resources Business Partner

Malcolm was nervous about joining a big company like Amazon. He was nervous that he wouldn’t have the opportunity to lead big projects; his experience has been the exact opposite. During his Human Resources (HR) internship in California, he was able to collaborate with HR leaders across North America to complete a large-scale HR development project. As an intern, Malcolm was empowered to build relationships with HR Business Partners and create and analyse surveys to identify learning content needed for HR professionals at Amazon. In addition to being on a project team, he was able to learn from the site HR team and understand how HR plays a key role in running a successful operation. In his own words, “The level of ownership that Amazon instills in their interns is truly pivotal in helping young professionals learn in a professional environment.”
After completing his BBA from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Malcolm decided to return to Amazon full-time. In college, he was involved in marching band, volleyball, and other social organisations, and he enjoys being a part of different groups and trying new things. Based on his internship, Malcolm knew that Amazon would constantly provide new challenges and new environments, and he knew that this was the place he wanted to start his career. Within two years, Malcolm was promoted from HR Assistant to HR Business Partner and he has continued to expand his understanding and expertise in the HR field.
One of Malcolm’s favourite aspects of Amazon is how the Leadership Principles guide business decisions. Malcolm expected the Leadership Principles to just be words that are mentioned on the company website, but he quickly learned that they are embedded into every part of the company, from assessing talent to developing new business initiatives. The Leadership Principle he finds most important for success in his role is Earn Trust. Malcolm strives to build positive relationships within his network and creates work environments where employees feel empowered to reach their fullest potential.
