Google Changes Office Attendance Policies

Google Changes Office Attendance Policies

Google has officially said that it would consider employee in-office attendance when evaluating their performance. Additionally, the Sundar Pichai-led corporation will send absentee workers’ attendance reminders.

Reversal Of Pandemic Policy

Tech giant Google has tightened up its attendance policies since the Covid pandemic is almost finished. 

In a statement to staff, Google’s Chief People Officer Fiona Cicconi stated that employees who are ready to work remotely full-time will be considered “by exception only.” The Pandemic policy, which had previously led tens of thousands of employees to transfer from the company’s premises, has been overturned by Google.

Google informed its staff in April 2022 that they should expect to return to work at least three days each week. However, Google has just implemented a new policy wherein office attendance will play a significant role in the company’s performance evaluations.

Additionally, Apple Inc. also requires the staff members to come into the office three times each week.
