Politico will offer employees a hybrid work option when they begin returning to the office after Labor Day, Washingtonian wrote, citing a memo from Politico founder and publisher Robert Allbritton to staffers.
“Remote work will not be a disadvantage” as Politico’s “new normal will include the option to connect by video or audio whenever practical,” the memo said, according to Washingtonian. Still, some employees may be expected to be present in the office more often than others according to their professional responsibilities, it added.
In addition, work flexibility and high levels of productivity are one of the guiding principles in the new work arrangement, according to the memo.
Politico employees will continue working remotely until Labor Day as the company conducts surveys over the summer to understand workers’ desires regarding an in-office return, the note said.
