Meta employees forced to return to offices

Mumbai, September 6,  During the peak of the Covid-19 pandemic, companies across the world announced remote work for their employees to help them stay safe. Now that things have become normal, most companies are withdrawing the work from home policy and asking employees to return to work from offices at least three days a week. While Amazon CEO Andy Jassy argued that 'it's easier to learn, model, practice, and strengthen culture when employees are in the office together', Google CEO Sundar Pichai said that three days away from the office And working two days from home results in a 'good balance' for employees.
And Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg said earlier this year that employees who work from offices perform better than those who work from home. In June, the company started informing employees that they would soon have to start working from offices and the RTO order came into effect from Tuesday.
