Beginning in May, Amazon will mandate that workers spend at least three days a week away from the office. The business disclosed the strategy in a document that was released on Friday and was ascribed to CEO Andy Jassy (via CNN). In support of the rule, Jassy argued that a hybrid work arrangement will “strengthen” Amazon’s corporate culture and promote better employee collaboration.
We’re going to give the teams that must perform that task some time to establish a plan because it’s not easy to bring thousands of employees back to our locations across the world, Jassy said. We are aware that it won’t be perfect right away, but as our real estate and facilities teams iron out the kinks and ultimately keep evolving how we want our offices to be set up to capture the new ways we want to work, the office experience will steadily get better over the coming months (and years).
Amazon announced shortly after the pandemic started that it anticipated staff members returning to work in October 2020. As new waves of the coronavirus drove cities all over the world to lock down, the business continued to postpone that date.
The timing of Amazon’s announcement coincides with Activision’s confirmation that beginning in July, Blizzard employees will be required to labour outside the office at least three days a week. Similar to Blizzard, Amazon has experienced a large number of employees organising in protest of the business’s practises.
The first unionised Amazon workhouse was JFK8, a facility in Staten Island, which became famous after the majority of its employees decided to unionise last year. The action was also taken after Amazon announced at the beginning of the year that it would let more than 18,000 workers go.
