Time to get back to the office?

It may seem ironic but Zoom, the video calling app, is the latest big firm to tell staff they need to come back into the office.

Zoom wants staff in at least two days a week at one of its bases. The announcement follows similar moves from the likes of Apple, Amazon, BlackRock and Goldman Sacks.

A Zoom spokesperson said: “We believe that a structured hybrid approach – meaning employees that live near an office need to be onsite two days a week to interact with their teams – is the most effective for Zoom.”

Oh, and Zoom doesn’t want people in the office more – they want them to return to “an engagement hub”! It has just opened a new one in Holborn.
