Dell Technologies is implementing a new return-to-office policy, reclassifying most workers as hybrid.
After years of encouraging remote work, they are joining other global tech giants in their RTO plans.
Employees will be required to work from a corporate office for at least 39 days per quarter, three days per week.
The new in-person requirement will apply to workers who have been operating on a hybrid policy.
“We believe in-person connections paired with a flexible approach are critical,” a Dell spokesperson said.
Dell had previously said about two-thirds of its workforce could continue working from home until the pandemic ended
However, last year employees living within an hour of a Dell office were required to come in at least three days per week.
Now, that has been widened to include all employees. This is regardless of where they live or how long it will take for them to commute.
Dell employs more than 125,000 workers. The company occupies about 9.5 million square feet of office space around the world.
Dell did not respond to additional questions about potential layoffs or the potential impact of its revised in-office policy.
Last year, the company laid off about 6,000 people or roughly 5% of its workforce.
