Roblox management wants employees to return to the office. The CEO of the company, David Baszucki, announced that from next year they will have to come to the office at least three times a week — from Tuesday to Thursday. Those who do not agree will have to look for another job.
It is necessary to make a decision before January 16, 2024. Basuki promised that Roblox would help employees with moving to San Mateo, where the company's headquarters are located. Employees who refuse to work in the office will be able to stay in the company until April 15, 2024. After the dismissal, they will be paid severance pay.
However, some people will be able to continue working from home. These include employees whose position assumes a remote format of work: moderators, employees of call centers and data centers. Also, "persons with niche skills or significant institutional knowledge" are not allowed to come to the office. For example, employees with deep experience working with Roblox systems.
As explained by Basuki, the return of employees to the office will increase their productivity and speed up the resolution of work issues.
Recall that Roblox began to abandon the "remote" in May 2022, but then it offered softer conditions.
