Amazon is tightening its in-office requirements for corporate workers.
In a corporate blog post, Amazon CEO Andy Jassy announced that as of May 1, 2023, Amazon will require corporate employees to spend the majority of their working time (at least three days per week) in the office.
This reverses a policy Amazon enacted in the second half of 2021 that said director-level executives would decide whether their employees would work remotely, in-office, or on a hybrid basis. This marked a change from Amazon’s previous return-to-work plan, announced in June 2021, in which it set a baseline of three days a week in the office, giving employees the option to work remotely up to two days a week. Prior to that, in March 2021, Amazon said that its goal was to “return to an office-centric culture as our baseline.”Chain Store Age
