Disney Is Bringing Employees Back to the Office Four Days a Week to Benefit the Company’s Culture and Creativity

From a New York Times story by Brooks Barnes headlined “Disney Is Bringing Employees Back Four Days a Week”:

Starting on March 1, the Walt Disney Company will require employees to report to the office four days a week, a relatively strict policy among large companies.

Robert A. Iger, who came out of retirement in November to retake Disney’s chief executive reins, said in a memo to employees on Monday that a return to mostly in-person work — for the first time in nearly three years — would benefit the company’s culture in general and movie and TV creative processes in particular. Since his return, Mr. Iger has been trying to boost morale and galvanize Disney’s creative engines.
