Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Meta Platforms, is now encouraging employees to find more opportunities to work together in person with colleagues by commuting to the office.
Meta is the latest high-profile company looking to roll back liberal work-from-home policies. The company is preparing to call its employees back to the office in 2023. Companies like Amazon, Starbucks and Walt Disney also want to withdraw the work from policy.
The notion of ending work from home in the minds of companies has come at a time when the number of people working in the US reached 50% in the post-pandemic years. CEOs like Jamie Dimon of JPMorgan Chase & Co. are now disapproving of work from home. Dimon recently said that working from home isn’t good for managers or young employees.
This year’s return-to-office policies are inspired by a 2022 move by companies such as Goldman Sachs Group Inc, Morgan Stanley, Apple and Peloton Interactive Inc that asked their workers to work at least three days a week.
It is believed that these companies have decided to end work from home to promote individual work among the employees.
