Amazon will let individual teams decide how much time they spend in the office



The company will now allow individual teams to decide which policy works for them, ranging from a full-time return to office life to a remote majority. Amazon (AMZN) CEO Andy Jassy said in a note to employees Monday.

“In a company the size of us, there’s no one-size-fits-all approach to how each team works best,” Jassy said. “For our corporate functions, instead of specifying that people work three days a week in the office, we will leave that decision in the hands of individual teams,” he added, referring to the previous policy of Amazon about how often it would do that. require the presence of employees.

Company executives will decide how often in-person work fits their teams, Jassy said.

“We hope that there will be teams that continue to work mostly remotely, others that work in combination remotely and in the office, and others that will decide that customers are better served because the team works primarily in the office, ”Jassy said.

Amazon, like several other technology companies, has changed policies and return dates several times during the coronavirus pandemic. The company before he pushed for the reopening date of his office from September 2021 to January 2022 due to the Delta variant.

The company will still have certain requirements regarding the proximity of employees to the office, even if they are primarily remote.

“At this stage, we want most of our people to be close enough to their basic equipment so that they can easily travel to the office for a meeting with a day’s notice,” Jassy said.

As with previous policies, the changes will apply only to Amazon’s corporate workforce and not to its hundreds of thousands of warehouse workers and delivery suppliers, most of whom have been working personally throughout the pandemic. Jassy also noted that there are workers in Amazon data centers and in some physical stores who cannot work remotely.

In his note, he praised these teams and said their work is “highly appreciated”.
