Silicon Valley tech company NVIDIA is a chip and graphics hardware manufacturer whose products power much of the AI boom. The company, with about 26,000 employees worldwide, has a valuation of over $1 trillion
One of the things that made NVIDIA so valuable is their decision to go against the return-to-office trend and not pressuring its employees to commute to offices.
They allowed remote work to go on indefinitely. This policy was initially announced by Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang in May 2020, stating that he had “no trouble with” employees working from home.
The company believes that giving employees the choice to work in any setting, be it at home or in an office, allows for a better work-life balance. This flexible approach seems to align with the preferences of many workers who desire a hybrid work model.
Nvidia’s policy has given the company a talent advantage, as employees are attracted to its remote-friendly approach.
Many companies that are mandating a full return to the office, like Amazon, risk losing their pipeline of leaders and are struggling to recruit new talent.
The company provides luxurious office spaces for employees to gather and collaborate, such as its Voyager building in Santa Clara, California.
