Microsoft moving back to the office
Microsoft will begin allowing more workers back into its headquarters in Redmond, Wash., the company announced Monday.
Nonessential on-site workers will be given the option to work from the office, from home or a hybrid of both.
Any worker who does choose to go to the office will continue to have to wear a mask and practice social distancing.
The company’s reasoning: “Our goal is to give employees further flexibility, allowing people to work where they feel most productive and comfortable, while also encouraging employees to work from home as the virus and related variants remain concerning,” Microsoft executive vice president Kurt DelBene said in a blog post Monday.
The company is describing the latest update in its recommendations as step four on a six-step dial.
