As Bob Iger made his way back to the position of chief executive at Disney, he implemented changes in the way the company’s corporate wing functions. During his previous tenure, Iger was responsible for one of the most successful periods in Disney’s history, overseeing the acquisition of Pixar, Marvel, Lucasfilm, and 21st Century Fox, as well as the unveiling of Disney theme parks and resorts in Shanghai.
According to a report from CNBC, Iger, via email, informed employees that they would be required to return to corporate offices for four days a week starting March 1, 2023. This move comes after companies such as Snap, Tesla, and Uber have also called their employees back to their offices as COVID restrictions have relaxed and vaccination becomes mandatory. Both Uber and Tesla recalled their employees last year, implementing different methods to do so.
Organizations were forced to adopt work from home arrangements because of the pandemic, complying with social distancing mandates to keep their employees safe.
Iger returned to his role as CEO of Walt Disney in November, replacing Bob Chapek in a move made by the company to boost investor confidence and profits of its streaming media unit.
