Amazon CEO Andy Jassy has informed company employees that it will be up to team managers to decide how often their employees will need to work in the office.
Amazon is one of many companies who has recently adopted more flexible work arrangements moving forward.
“We expect that there will be teams that continue working mostly remotely, others that will work some combination of remotely and in the office, and still others that will decide customers are best served having the team work mostly in the office,” Jassy wrote in a memo to employees. “We’re intentionally not prescribing how many days or which days — this is for Directors to determine with their senior leaders and teams.”
This is a pivot from Amazon’s initial return-to-office strategy, which aimed to bring corporate employees back three days a week beginning January 3 of next year. However, Jassy added that Amazon did not want to abide by a one-size-fits-all approach.
Now, corporate employees will have the ability to work up to four weeks per year remotely from any location in the country they are employed in.
