Software company Adobe is one of the latest major organizations to adopt a new hybrid work model that allows employees to spend just half of their work week in the office.
Adobe used results from employee surveys, interviews and focus groups when creating its hybrid plan.
“Last year, when it became clear that work was never going back to the way things were, we saw an opportunity and need to reimagine the employee experience and develop a future-of-work approach that leverages the best of in-person and virtual interactions to foster creativity, innovation, and culture,” said Gloria Chen, HR chief at Adobe.
Despite the shift to a hybrid model, Adobe is still working on finishing its downtown San Jose headquarters, which is expected to be completed in late 2022. It is also adding to its 400,000 square feet of office space in Bangalore, India, which is anticipated to be done around the same time.
The company has plans to reopen its San Jose offices on July 14 at 50% capacity. It will implement its hybrid arrangements in the U.S. first, and expand to other countries later in the year.
