Management has Spoken: It’s Time to Return to the Office

Playtime is over: companies are attempting to take back control of the remote work dialog.

Tech companies are getting more aggressive in their return-to-office push – giving employees little option on the possibility of remote work. More companies are opting for moving employees to a hybrid schedule at a minimum, which will force many to relocate back within range of the office.

Why it matters: This is a stark change for much of the workforce within the tech industry, as many employees had been able to dodge return-to-office requests from their respective employers. However, with the labor market tightening and layoffs increasing, the balance of power has shifted back to management.

  • Google (GOOGL) asked employees to start coming back into the office three days a week in April, but the request was ignored by many within the company. The search giant will now be pinging employees when they’re missing from the office for extended periods and will consider office attendance within performance reviews.
  • Meta (META) has already instructed workers who live near an office to start coming back in beginning in September.
  • Not all employees are expected to give up their remote work rights so easily, so it will be important to keep an eye on the trend as it picks up steam.
