In the last few weeks as I’ve commuted into central London for work I’ve noticed my trains have been getting busier and busier - gone are the days where I sat in the same spot. Most days I’m standing for the entire journey - back to the pre-covid days.
Return to work is still a big topic for many companies as we are starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel, finding the balance between what is in the company’s best interest and employees.
In June, Amazon announced
that it will require employees to come back to the office at least 50% of the time with the aim to return to an office-centric work culture once again.
But just yesterday new CEO Andy Jassy released this memo
changing Amazon’s stance to be a team-based approach - where team directors will determine policies.
More and more companies seem to be taking this approach, ultimately leaving in the hands of team leaders to make the call and take responsibility for any changes (good or bad) in performance or results.
