TikTok announced to its workers on Monday that some of the staff will be able to work remotely twice a week after they resume office.
TikTok employees will also have the option to work from a different location after their manager’s approval. This remote work policy applies to full-time employees and interns in the UK, the UN and Ireland. Other locations will follow soon.
Currently, TikTok is working fully remotely as a return-to-office date isn’t set yet.
“There is no substitute for in-person collaboration, and we’re excited to eventually re-open our US offices. But it’s clear that many of us have adjusted well to working from home, and value the flexibility and balance.”An internal message
As of 2021, TikTok is operational in the US, France, UK, Germany, Singapore, South Korea, Indonesia and Japan.
Most giants like Apple, Google and Amazon have also made announcements about moving to hybrid working models. While some employees and employers are happy with the decision, some others are sceptical about the outcome of such a model. Is it for the long term?
The post pandemic work world is expected to be a mix of remote and in-office work culture. Only time will tell what works best for employers and employees.
