Workers for software developer Atlassian, Australia’s biggest technology company, will be required to go into their nearest office only four times a year, daily newspaper The Age reported April 29.
The staff of 5,700 can work from any location in a country where Atlassian has an office, where they have the legal right to work and where the time zone aligns with that of their team, the report said.
The tech firm has decided to fully embrace remote work at a time when many companies are heading back to the office at least part time.
Atlassian co-founder Scott Farquhar told The Age that he had only been to the office three times in the last year.
In a recent blog post, the company founders spoke of participating in “the biggest-ever work experiment.”
“At Atlassian, we believe people and technology interacting in new ways, with flexibility, is at the heart of the new operating model for every single organization,” the said.
