Major technology companies are pressuring their workers to return to the office or risk losing their jobs. However, Autodesk, a software company, is taking a different approach with its hybrid-centric program called Flex Forward. Under this program, managers have the authority to decide if and when employees need to come into the office. Rebecca Pearce, the chief people officer at Autodesk, played a significant role in advocating for this approach. Despite the pressure to conform to the industry norm, Pearce believes in the effectiveness of flexible working arrangements and understands the importance of face-to-face interactions. The company gradually reopened its offices in 2021 but did not see a rush of employees returning. While other companies, such as Tesla, Meta, JPMorgan Chase, and Amazon, have mandated in-person work, Autodesk wants its employees to choose to be in the office rather than being forced. The company believes that being in the office alone does not guarantee happiness, productivity, collaboration, or innovation. By giving managers the power to make decisions, Autodesk hopes to avoid employee walkouts and retain its workforce.
