Working from Home
The world’s largest online retailer, Amazon, is likely to maintain its flexible work-from-home policy at a time when the majority of businesses are encouraging employees to return to the office or at least adopt a hybrid form of work. According to a source, Amazon CEO Andy Jassy stated last week at a conference that the practice of working from home will likely continue in the near future.
On Wednesday, Jassy stated,
At the Los Angeles Code Conference on Wednesday, Jassy reportedly stated that Amazon has no intentions to require its corporate employees who work from home to return to the office.
“We don’t have a plan to demand individuals to come back. We don’t at the moment. But as we learn more, we’ll move forward adaptably, he said.
However, he recognized that some employees, such as those from hardware or creative divisions, must return to the office while others, such as engineers, can work from home. On Wednesday, Jassy stated that many employees have returned to the office and are doing so on some days of the week.
Jassy acknowledged that some tasks were more difficult to complete remotely. “I do think there are some tasks that are harder to complete remotely,” she added.
Early in 2020, as the Covid-19 pandemic spread quickly over the world, Amazon instructed its IT staff to work from home. In October of that year, the business said that it would leave it up to individual managers to decide how frequently workers should go to work, signaling a drastic change from its former goal of reverting to a more “office-centric culture.”
According to Reuters, Jassy had stated in a memo that “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.”
According to CNN, he continued, “There is no one-size-fits-all approach for how every team works best.” Amazon’s announcement about working from home comes at a time when other corporations, including Apple and Google, have made it mandatory for employees to work from offices for at least some days each week.
As Covid-19 wanes and businesses gradually shift to the hybrid work mode, tech giant Apple Inc. requested its staff to return to the office and work from their allotted deputations last month. Employees will have to work from offices at least three days a week, the iPhone manufacturer stated.
