Zoom Plans A Hybrid Return To Work

Share post:

Zoom announced that the company will take a hybrid approach as it moves to return to office work.

The announcement follows a survey which revealed that only 1% of staff want to return to the office full-time.

While admitting it may not be easy, the company said it would strategically mix remote and in-office working since its employee survey showed that more than half of its staff wanted a hybrid approach, while the rest were already working full-time.

To answer questions about the hybrid approach, Zoom’s financial officer, Kelly Steckelberg said the company is still experimenting with the feasibility of a hybrid approach.

She explained: “We opened our Sydney, Australia, office this summer, but temporarily closed it soon after, as COVID-19 threatened the area. We plan to reopen again when it is safe, but this could impact plans to reopen a second location this fall (autumn).” The company further assured that it will not rush office reopening and that no office will open until it was “possible to do so without personal protective equipment and social distancing”.
