[Slashdot] - Uber Will Ask Employees To Return To Work 50% of the Time

Recommended Posts

Uber on Tuesday told employees it will roll out a hybrid return-to-work model this fall, allowing for a more flexible approach to location and time spent in the office. CNBC reports: The company is asking employees to be in the office 50% of the time. That time can be split up in whatever way works best for employees and their teams, Uber's chief people officer, Nikki Krishnamurthy, wrote in a blog post. That could mean one week on, one week off, or three days one week and two days the next week, for instance. It's a slightly different model than many companies have been choosing, where they ask employees to come in a set number of days each week. Uber employees will also have more flexibility on their preferred office location, the company said. They'll be able to choose from a list of "dedicated team hubs," instead of being limited to their pre-pandemic location. The new model will likely start this fall. Employees are allowed to continue to work from home until Sept. 13, barring a worsening of Covid-19. "Before then, our team will be able to apply for remote work or potential office changes. It's our goal to have all remote work/location transfers processed by September," a spokesperson told CNBC. Uber is also telling employees they can apply to become fully remote. "We'll also host periodic in-person meetings once our offices reopen so remote employees have the chance to meet and collaborate with their teammates face to face and benefit from in-person interaction and collaboration," Krishnamurthy said.
