According to a report from CNBC, Meta, the owner of Facebook (NASDAQ:META), has implemented a new policy requiring its employees to work from the company’s physical locations for at least three days every week.

This mandate applies to all employees who have been assigned an office and does not affect Meta’s remote workers.

The decision to prioritize in-person work is aimed at creating a valuable experience for employees who have chosen to work from the office. Meta (META) spokesperson stated, “We are being intentional about investing in remote work while focusing on strengthening our in-person capabilities.”

Employees who are unable to meet the three-day requirement can request an exception from their managers, as reported by the New York Post. Meta (META) will review employee attendance records monthly and has warned that failure to comply with the mandate may result in termination.

It is worth noting that several other companies, including Amazon (AMZN) and Alphabet (GOOG) (GOOGL), have also urged employees to return to physical offices for at least three days a week.

In March, Meta (META) CEO Mark Zuckerberg shared the company’s internal analysis, which revealed that “engineers who initially joined Meta in-person and later transitioned to remote work or remained in-person performed better on average than those who joined remotely.”

He further added, “We hypothesize that building trust in person is still easier, and these relationships contribute to our effectiveness in the workplace.”
