DoorDash just announced its commitment to a hybrid work arrangement. Their new Flexible Workplace Model will allow teams to choose how they want to leverage both in-person and remote work. The model is not a one-size-fits-all, but it’s more of a flexible arrangement each team will decide.
Most companies are embracing a hybrid work model as it allows employees to enjoy flexibility but also encourages collaboration among teams. DoorDash believes that work should balance remote work and in-person work, but it will still enable each team to figure out what arrangement works best for them.
DoorDash: Flexible Workplace Model
DoorDash’s new model focuses on these guiding principles:
- The value of in-person connections
- Shares customer obsession
- Advantages of attracting and retaining employees
The company is not looking to build the same work arrangement for everyone. It provides teams with the ability to decide how they want to balance in-person and remote work. Instead of setting a fixed number of days employees need to work from the office, it will depend on how distributed each team is and the nature of each team’s work.
The company will continue to recruit in, near, and outside of our Hubs – offices with 100+ people. According to Tony Xu, Co-Founder, and CEO of DoorDash:
“In many ways, whether COVID-19 occurred or not, we would be evolving how we work. As a growing organization with offices across the world and teams distributed across cities, we will continue to iterate. And as with all things at DoorDash, we will always aim to improve and keep getting better.”
