Nvidia is giving its employees a flexible work policy that them to choose whether to work remotely, in an office, or in a hybrid setting.
The company’s chief executive officer (CEO), Jensen Huang, has said that he has “no trouble” with employees working remotely indefinitely. He believes that the arrangement is a way for employees to balance their personal and work obligations, and to prepare for the future.
Nvidia’s flexible work policy is in stark contrast to that of many other tech companies, which have been increasingly strident about employees working more in the office. For example, Amazon CEO Andy Jassy recently warned employees that “it’s probably not going to work out for you” if they continued to ignore a return-to-office mandate.
Nvidia’s decision to stick with its flexible work policy is likely to give the company a competitive advantage in the talent market. A recent survey by Deloitte and Workplace Intelligence found that two-thirds of executives said they’d likely quit if forced back to the office five days a week.
Nvidia’s success with its flexible work policy is also a sign that the future of work is changing. Employees are increasingly demanding more flexibility and autonomy, and companies that are willing to provide it are likely to be the most successful in attracting and retaining top talent.
In addition to its flexible work policy, Nvidia is also investing in new office spaces that are designed to foster collaboration and innovation. The company’s latest headquarters addition, Voyager, is a 750,000-square-foot structure with airy communal spaces and views for everyone.
