CNBC is reporting on GM’s return to work plan, which in short is: work appropriately. 

“It is not about a policy or a one-size-fits-all approach,” Laura Jones, GM’s global talent director, told reporters this week. “But truly that evolution of our culture for everyone.” The  decision to create such a program followed feedback from employees, many of whom have been working remotely for a year due to the coronavirus pandemic. GM conducted several surveys regarding how and where employees would prefer to work in the future, officials said.”

Such flexible and ambiguous policies are meant to empower GM’s leaders to take responsibility for their departments and employees. GM recently held 52 workshops for 1,100 company leaders to lay out its remote work initiative, according to officials. Each leader will work with their employees to determine what is an appropriate work schedule.
