Earlier, e-commerce player Amazon was planning to call its employees to work. Now, the US company has changed that stance. The company is allowing its corporate and tech employees around the world to work remotely for two days per week.
The company said it expects employees to work in the office three days a week, leaving them the option to work remotely up to two days a week. In addition, the company is allowing its employees to operate from another location within their home countries for up to four weeks each year.
The company stated, “Going forward, we’ve decided to offer Amazon employees a mix of working between the office and home.”
The company stated, “If you would like to work in the office less than three days a week and are still able to commute into your assigned office as needed, you can apply for an exception from your VP. If the exception is approved, you will be considered primarily a remote worker, and will have an agile workspace (not a dedicated one) that provides space to collaborate with your team.” The days will be based on the conversation with the leadership team.
The company stated, “We’re all figuring out how work will keep evolving and what will be best for customers, our teams, and individual employees."
The company lauded its employees for the hard work they put in over the past 16 months and helped so many customers and businesses cope with the unusual pandemic circumstances.
