Snap appears to be doing an about-face on remote work, requiring the majority of employees in-office in February.
Like many tech companies, Snap has embraced remote work since early in the pandemic. The company even announced it was closing its San Francisco offices as a result of remote work. The company now appears to be reversing course, informing employees they will be transitioning to an 80/20 hybrid model, with 80% of employees working from the office.
“After working remotely for so long, we’re excited to get everyone back together next year with our new 80/20 hybrid model,” the company spokesperson told Reuters.
The news marks a major blow to remote work, given Snap’s early support of it.
