Microsoft to reopen headquarters by February end

For employees to return to the office, Microsoft isn’t prescribing a blanket requirement. Instead, employees will have 30 days from 28 February to “make adjustments to their routines and adopt the working preferences they’ve agreed upon with their managers”

Microsoft, on 28 February, plans to fully reopen its offices in Washington State, where it is headquartered. Before being delayed indefinitely in September, the company’s reopening plans shifted many times in 2021, but now a firm date has been committed by Microsoft.

High vaccination rates in King County as well as declining hospitalizations and deaths in the state are “part of what enables us to move to this stage of our hybrid work journey,” says Chris Capossela, a Microsoft executive vice president and its chief marketing officer, in a blog post. However, for employees to return to the office, Microsoft isn’t prescribing a blanket requirement. Instead, employees will have 30 days from 28 February to “make adjustments to their routines and adopt the working preferences they’ve agreed upon with their managers,” according to Capossela.

Bay Area offices of Microsoft in California will similarly be fully reopened on 28 February, “and we anticipate many of our other US locations will follow suit as conditions allow,” says Capossela.

Other tech companies have also adjusted their office plans in the recent weeks. Meta is scheduled to reopen its offices on 28 March, and to return to office, employees will need to have gotten a COVID-19 booster shot. Also, employees of Apple will need to submit proof of a COVID-19 booster or provide negative COVID-19 rapid antigen tests to enter the workplace. Google said in December that it will wait until sometime this year to make new return-to-office plans.
