Uber Sets Return to Office Date for November

Come Nov. 1, all non-remote Uber employees are expected to be in the office on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

It was a good ride, but the luxury of working exclusively from home will soon come to an end -- for Uber employees, at least. The popular ride share and delivery service released a statement Tuesday from Chief People Officer Nikki Krishnamurthy informing all non-remote employees that they are expected to return to office starting Nov. 1.

Like many tech companies, Uber said it is adopting a hybrid model with a mix of work time spent at home and in office. For non-remote Uber employees, that in-office time includes the "anchor days" of Tuesdays and Thursdays.

The move is to "help maximize the benefits of in-person collaboration," according to the statement, citing employee feedback that indicates people are "more engaged, have a stronger sense of belonging and report overall higher satisfaction with work" when in the office.

Employees can still enjoy the freedom of working from anywhere for up to four weeks per year, and special considerations may allow some employees to continue full work from home status.

Uber didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.
