Thousands of Boeing employees who are still working remotely will return to the office in July, The Seattle Times wrote.
Roughly half of Boeing’s 15,000 local engineers are still working remotely or in a hybrid work arrangement, the newspaper said, citing Bill Dugovich, a spokesman for the Society of Professional Engineering Employees in Aerospace. Some workers may have the ability to continue working in a hybrid or remote work arrangement, he added.
Work arrangements will be based on “conversations with your manager about what work arrangement best aligns to the work you do,” Boeing’s chief human-resource officer Michael D’ambrose was cited as saying by the news publication.
Boeing’s new work model, deemed more flexible by the company, will formalize some remote-work arrangements and reflect the company’s plan to reduce its real-estate footprint, the report said. The aircraft maker previously has said the company will trim its worksites in the Puget Sound area by about 7 percent, it added.
