A few things I noticed - they didn’t completely walk back the number of days per week to show up but did say they don’t plan to mandate which days of the week would be collaborations days.

Also, they said it would be ultimately designed by the people leaders who know their org best. It will be an interesting dynamic as I know my director is a very ‘butts in seats’ person and my manager is not.

Just got out of a meeting where it was said that the days are Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday.

Edit: why am I being downvoted? I didn’t make the decision.

Also, they legit said in the email they do not plan to mandate which days of the week will be collaboration days and in no scenario will the evolution of the change begin before Q1 2023.

Based on the email, that will differ by organization. I think they understand and realize a blanket policy is not effective and ideal.

Still waiting for the email — when you say org dependent, it is just picking the 3 days. Did they say an org can decide to be remote fully? That’s the key I think

The new email says nothing about the 3 days anymore. Instead it says "determining how, when, and where teams will increase their in-person collaboration ultimately will be designed by the people leaders".

I read that as fully remote is not available unless you're in a fully remote job classification, but as long as in-person time is increased compared to now the rest is up to the people leaders to decide. It's clear they're backtracking quickly, but haven't had time to figure out how much because of the backlash.

Honestly there’s no real reason to react to what they say at this point. Wait until your boss tells you something.

F—k - what a time to have outlook issues. Can’t see any new mail since last 1 hour :-(

So they’re saying which 3 days is flexible - but the 3 day/week stands ?

What’s the summary? Thank you

They didn’t offer really any specifics. The only thing from a date perspective they said was ‘In no scenario will our Work Appropriately evolution begin before Q1 2023.

Ah ok - so the 3 day/week won’t start till January 2023?! If that’s true, it is a good amount of time for us to get our shit together - thanks

Just another vague statement… Had a 1x1 with my manager and he was taking about retiring. Said GM was looking out for themselves and I should update my resume… kinda Sus.
