Microsoft has announced that it is now ready to fully open its main two offices, following on from the two years of pandemic. Starting next week on Monday 28th February, the Redmond headquarters and other offices in the Washington state. Microsoft is being pretty flexible with staffs needs and working style, they’ll have 30 days to decide what work style they and their team want, whether that be hybrid, fully in office or remote.
The offices Microsoft has in the San Francisco Bay Area are also scheduled to open on Monday, with other US offices to follow suit as the conditions allow for it. Microsoft has said that this move back to the office is due to the high vaccination rates in the US, as well as the dropping numbers of hospitalisations.
Other companies in the US are also planning on returning to the office, with Meta aiming for 28th March and Apple currently keeps postponing its return date.
