Amazon has announced that it expects its office workers to come back to the workplace by this fall in order to “return to an office-centric culture as [its] baseline.”
However, some workers are unhappy about the transition and are even considering leaving the company if they have to return to the office full-time.
Amazon previously announced employees would come back to the workplace by the end of June, but it was still unclear if workers could still work from home part of the time.
While the reaction from employees has been mixed, business owners in downtown Seattle, where the online retailer is headquartered, are excited for the boost in business the office reopening should give them.
The company’s plan differs from its fellow technology firms, such as Microsoft, who have committed to operating on a hybrid office model that allows employees to work from home part of the week.
