Uber has extended its work-from-home policy for its employees till September 13. Just like its Silicon Valley peers Facebook and Google, Uber is also planning to switch to a hybrid model of work.
Uber Chief People Officer, Nikki Krishnamurthy said
Post-COVID, Uber will likely have a hybrid work model, but it’s still a work in progress.
Further, Uber encourages its employees to get vaccinated as some roles require a physical presence in the office, but said that it will not force anyone with medical concerns.
But as of now, the company is still assessing whether being in office increases or reduces productivity, collaboration, and engagement.
Here's what our users had to say:
Hrishikesh Pardeshi said "Hybrid may not be the best way forward but it's at least a positive step. I heard Amazon is also considering permanent hybrid and they have been consistently sharing surveys internally to assess how employees feel about working remotely & their preferences post Covid."
John Wade said "Well said, Hrishikesh. Came across a blog by Darren about the considerations for going hybrid remote. Would be helpful for the community :)"
