Lyft has announced that it will not require employees to be back in the office until 2023.
The company pointed to demand for flexibility as the reason for the delay, rather than the emerging Omicron variant.
“We’ve heard from our team members that they value continued flexibility in determining where they work and would benefit from additional time to plan,” said Ashley Adams, a spokesperson for Lyft. “We want to give people a choice for all of next year.”
Although Adams added that the rideshare firm’s offices will reopen in February, workers will still have the option to work remotely for all of 2022.
“We’re already seeing an increasing number of team members choose to work from the office, and we’re excited to offer more opportunities for those interested in getting together,” said Adams.
