Amazon Will Have Some of Its Workers Relocate as Part of the “Return-to-Office” Push

E-commerce giant Amazon is making another controversial move as part of the company’s push to have its workers back in the office. According to a recent report by Bloomberg, Amazon will have some of its employees relocate in order to ensure they comply with the policy that requires them to work at least three days per week in the office.

The policy change is reportedly expected to affect remote workers and those who moved during the pandemic. The remote workers will be required to report to one of the “main hub” offices, including those located in Seattle, San Francisco, and New York.

It is currently unclear how many employees will be affected by the change, with the decision being made “on a departmental basis.”

“There’s more energy, collaboration, and connections happening since we’ve been working together at least three days per week, and we’ve heard this from lots of employees and the businesses that surround our offices,” an Amazon spokesperson said in a statement provided to Bloomberg. “We continue to look at the best ways to bring more teams together in the same locations, and we’ll communicate directly with employees as we make decisions that affect them.”

Amazon received a significant backlash from its workers after announcing the “three days per week in the office” policy back in May, with employees at the Seattle offices staging a walkout in protest.
