Andy Jassy (CEO Of Amazon) Said He Will Not Force Workers To Return To The Office
CEO of Amazon 'Andy Jassy' stated that they have no plans to force their corporate employees to return to the company's office. He expressed these views at a conference in the USA and believed that they would continue to proceed based on an adaptive approach.
In early 2020, the workers at Amazon were told to start working from home - At that time, the measure was introduced to curb the spread of COVID-19 and to ensure the safety of the tech workers. Then in October, the CEO stated that it would be up to the managers whether they wanted the workers to return to the office or continue working from home.
Earlier, Amazon followed a strict office-centric culture in which working at the office was always encouraged. But now it seems that the company is deviating away from that policy and encouraging work from home.
Most Employees Are Back To Office
Mr. Jassy said that the bulk of the employees have returned to the Amazon offices but still spend a few days working from home. There are certain teams that are required to be at the office, such as the creative units or the hardware units. On the other hand, other employees, such as engineers, can work remotely as well.
There are certainly a few things that can't be done remotely, according to Jassy. That's why he believes that it might not be possible to invent a way to work remotely for such people.
Earlier, Jassy had said that the pandemic had left a long-lasting impact on how work is done and how offices are being used. In fact, it even affected the way Amazon company hires new talent.
For example, the company is now more accepting of remote work, which allows it to hire talent from any location!
