Just in – Square Enix has announced that the ritual of working from home will now be permanent. Right now, the employees are already working from home, but that’s due to COVID-19. Starting from December 1, all “eligible employees will be designated as “home-based.” Square Enix writes that during the pandemic, they were working on new measures that would establish the “work from home” meta.
The company did come up with a great idea, and further, they also did a survey that concluded 80% of employees were in favor of working from home.
“This program was finalized based on those considerations. By enabling the option of monthly status changes rather than establishing blanket rules regarding who works from home and who from the office, Square Enix has designed a program that should be highly satisfactory both to those performing duties and those managing them.’
Square Enix believes that working from home promotes productivity and a better optimal work-life balance. In its announcement, the company also mentioned that this home-based program would help them establish a new organization that could tackle “unexpected developments such as disasters and changes in employment models.” Finally, it also hopes that now the games will be better because it’ll “unleash even greater creativity” for all customers around the world.
