, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) Introduces Chopsticks In Its Cafeterias, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) has decided to introduce chopsticks in all its cafeterias as parts of its efforts to foster culinary diversity.

The deployment of chopsticks was part of the company’s strategy to improve the eating experience of its employees. Unlike most tech firms, Amazon has a policy that requires every worker throughout all its locations to pay to eat at its dining halls. The company decided to introduce chopsticks after the idea was presented by one of the employees during a meeting in March. The meeting which was held in March was one of the all-hands meetings that Amazon holds two times annually in Seattle.

The workers that gave the report about the chopsticks did not disclose the name of the employee that presented the idea. The all-hands meeting provides an opportunity for CEO Jeff Bezos and the company executives to analyze some of the major milestones and award the best performers. The events also create an opportunity for a live Q&A session where employees can forward their grievances directly in the arena or submit their questions anonymously. Some weird and funny questions have been presented in the past. The person who brought up the chopsticks subject stated that western utensils such as spoons are good but there are some employees that would be pleased if the cafeterias would also include chopsticks.

Bezos and his team took the question seriously especially considering that it will please the employees, which is part of the management’s goal as far as policy is concerned. It took roughly one week for the firm to stock chopsticks in the cafeteria. One of the employees stated that it was nice to see the company respond so quickly.

Amazon’s latest diversity report indicates that Asian employees make up 10% of the company’s total workforce in the US and 20% of all the managers in the US. Introducing the chopsticks was, therefore, a considerate move since Asians prefer to use chopsticks. Amazon is however not the only firm that encourages the use of chopsticks. Dropbox and Yahoo! Inc. (NASDAQ:YHOO) have availed chopsticks to their employees for quite some time.
