GM workers will return to office at least 3 days a week

GM employees who have been working remotely due to the pandemic will be required to return to the office at least three days a week, starting later this year, the automaker confirmed Friday.

An internal message to employees, first obtained by Automotive News and confirmed by GM on Friday, attributed the shift in GM’s Work Appropriately policy to the progress made against the pandemic, saying “the COVID-19 situation has dramatically improved.”

“As the COVID landscape has dramatically improved, and as we accelerate our transformation and enter a rapid launch cycle, we are evolving Work Appropriately to drive the best collaboration, enterprise mindset and impact. Effective later this year, employees who transitioned to working remotely some or all of the time during the pandemic will pivot to a more regular in-person work cycle, and they will now be expected to work three days on-campus each week,” GM spokesperson Maria Raynal said in a statement via email Friday. “We’re committed to maintaining flexibility to ensure our employees can attend to personal commitments, and we will share details with them in the coming weeks.”
