In September 2021, we’re shifting to a hybrid, team hub work model to give our people the freedom to do their best work while staying connected to their colleagues.
From September, Uber will shift to a hybrid model where its employees can opt to work from home for two days a week.
The decision was made following an internal company survey that revealed two-thirds of Uber employees prefer a mix of working at the office and at home.
As of now, Uber's new campus in San Francisco's Mission Bay allows employees to work at the office on a voluntary basis. However, the company expects all of its employees to return back to their offices in September.
Finally, Nikki Krishnamurthy also addressed why Uber workers aren't being given the option of staying permanently remote
“Why didn't we make a more radical shift? It ultimately comes down to the kind of company we want to be. Our business also exists in the real world, on the streets of thousands of cities, and it's important we stay connected to the places we serve."
Do you think hybrid remote is a good option for ride-hailing companies such as Uber?
