Amazon is implementing a strict Return to Office (RTO) policy and has demanded that employees should work from the office for at least three days a week.

Amazon Managers Ordered To Give Low-Performance Ratings To These Employees: Find Out Why?

What is absurd is that Amazon is reportedly asking managers to award low ratings to employees who have been refusing to come back to the office to work. 

Read on to find out all the details!

Amazon Implements Strict Return To Office Policy

Apparently, some employees of the e-commerce behemoth have claimed that Amazon’s stringent office attendance criteria is a part of a plan that is similar to “quiet firing.” In such “quiet firing” scenarios, the company creates challenging work conditions which leads to employees quitting voluntarily.

As per reports, employees who do not comply with the RTO policy will not be given promotions. There also are speculations that the company is looking to cut costs by having employees leave voluntarily.

It was in 2023 that this controversy began when Amazon started asking employees to come and work from the office. Additionally, in July, the company also announced the “return-to-hub” policy, which required employees to be based in central locations.

Those employees who refuse to return to their workplaces will be asked to find another team or go through a “voluntary resignation.”

Managers Being Pressured To Give Low Ratings To Employees

A report has stated that Amazon managers are being pressured to give employees low ratings in terms of performance if they don’t comply with the attendance policy.

As per an Amazon spokesperson, “Promotions are one of the many ways we support employees’ growth and development, and there are a variety of factors we consider when determining an employee’s readiness for the next level.”

Amazon employees have already expressed their disappointment with the return to hub policy and have announced their resignations on communication platforms like Slack. As per an employee of Amazon, “The lack of basic human respect leadership has shown with the layoffs and forced RTO is completely unacceptable.”

However, despite all the criticism and disagreements, Amazon is keen on having employees work from their offices three or more times a week starting from May. Apparently, the company believes that it will bring some long-term benefits for customers, business, and culture.
