Lyft will not need its staff to get back to the office until 2023
Lyft is giving its representatives one more year to work from a distance, a dramatic step among significant organizations that are proceeding to defer a re-visitation of the office.
The rideshare organization said Wednesday that it will not need its staff to get back to the workplace until 2023. Lyft didn’t refer to worries about the new Omicron Covid variation in its assertion, rather highlighting the “flexibility” wanted by its representatives.
“We’ve heard from our team members that they value continued flexibility in determining where they work and would benefit from additional time to plan,” said Ashley Adams, a Lyft spokesperson. “We want to give people a choice for all of next year.”
Adams said the organization’s offices are as yet set to return in February, yet working from the office will be optional for the total of 2022.
“We’re already seeing an increasing number of team members choose to work from the office, and we’re excited to offer more opportunities for those interested in getting together,” Adams said.
Various organizations have pushed back their re-visitation of office date, however (LYFT) is ostensibly the longest for a high-profile organization.
On Monday, Ford (F) pushed its re-visitation of office date to March over new Covid-19 worries. In the mean time, The Washington Post detailed that Google and (UBER) have delayed their re-visitation of office dates indefinitely.
The Wall Street Journal announced recently that Facebook parent Meta (FB) “will fully reopen its U.S. offices at the end of January, but will give workers a chance to delay their scheduled return as late as June.”
