Morale Low at Meta After Massive Layoff Announcement

Amid a second round of sweeping layoffs, Meta Platforms Inc. Chief Executive Officer Mark Zuckerberg is now encouraging staff to “find more opportunities to work with your colleagues in person.”  Meta is the latest high-profile company to walk back lenient work-from-home policies and call workers back to the office in 2023, joining others like Inc., Starbucks Corp. and Walt Disney Co.

The orders come as office occupancy across the US this year broke 50% for the first time since the pandemic began and CEOs like JPMorgan Chase & Co.’s Jamie Dimon continue to reject remote work.  Working from home “doesn’t work” for managers or younger staff, Dimon said recently.
