Uber has released a statement informing its staff that it will now adopt a hybrid work culture with two mandatory in-office days.
Like many tech companies, Uber said it is adopting a hybrid model with a mix of work time spent at home and in the office.
The statement, released on Tuesday by chief people officer Nikki Krishnamurthy informs all non-remote employees that they are expected to return to the office starting Nov. 1.
The move is to “help maximize the benefits of in-person collaboration,” according to the statement, citing that employee feedback indicates people are “more engaged, have a stronger sense of belonging and report overall higher satisfaction with work” when in the office.
Uber announced Tuesdays and Thursdays as “anchor days” where all non-remote employees must work from the office globally.
The ride-hailing service, however, added that employees could work from anywhere for up to four weeks per year. Last July, it had said it will let staff work from anywhere as much as half the time.
