Amazon plans to let individual managers decide whether corporate employees need to report to the office or continue to work remotely, GeekWire reported, citing an internal company memo from CEO Andy Jassey
The online marketplace and delivery giant already had delayed bringing its U.S. corporate workers back to the office until January amid a surge in Covid-19 cases across the country.
“We expect that there will be teams that continue working mostly remotely, others that will work some combination of remotely and in the office, and still others that will decide customers are best served having the team work mostly in the office,” Jassy was cited as saying in the memo. “We’re intentionally not prescribing how many days or which days — this is for Directors to determine with their senior leaders and teams.”
The Seattle-based company also will let corporate employees work fully remote for as many as four weeks a year from any location in their country of employment on condition they can do so effectively, Jassy wrote in the note.
