Software firm VMware has revealed it will transition to a hybrid work arrangement for its 33,000 employees in order to boost its environmental and diversity goals.
As part of its Future of Work initiative, the company said it will provide its staff with the choice to work from home, in the office or both.
Many other major companies have opted for this arrangement as well in order to reap the benefits of working from home, such as flexibility and a healthy work-life balance, and in the office which is ideal for collaboration.
“We are empowering our team to choose to work permanently remote, “flexible” or near a VMware office, or from a VMware office full-time,” said Rich Lang, senior vice president of human resources at VMware. “Employees can work from any location that accelerates their productivity and advances their personal and professional goals.
