Amazon offers 'wellness chamber' for stressed staff
Amazon plans to put "Wellness chambers" in its warehouses so that stressed workers can sit inside and watch videos about relaxation. In a video shared on its Twitter account, Amazon said the "AmaZen" chamber would help staff focus on their mental health. Describing the AmaZen booths, it said: "During shifts employees can visit AmaZen stations and watch short videos featuring easy-to-follow well-being activities, including guided meditations, positive affirmations, calming scenes with sounds." News site Motherboard described the chamber as a "Coffin-sized booth in the middle of an Amazon warehouse". Some viewers were quick to re-upload the video to other accounts and criticise the tech giant for what has been labelled a "Crying booth" or a "Dystopian" work practice.
