Starbucks Corp. is requiring its white-collar employees to work from the office at least three days per week starting Jan. 30.
According to a report by CNBC, employees within commuting distance of the company’s Seattle head office will be required to work onsite Tuesdays, Wednesdays and a third day to be determined by their team. Workers at Starbucks’ regional offices will also be required to work onsite three days per week.
In a memo cited by the report, Starbucks’ chief executive officer Howard Schultz said the new policy is meant to “rebuild our connection to each other and synchronize teams and efforts.”
Last week, the Walt Disney Co. said it will require white-collar employees to work onsite four days per week beginning in March. And last fall, Twitter Inc. ordered nearly all employees back to the office five days a week, while Apple Inc. told workers to return to the office three days a week.
