Macy’s leans on corporate staff to get back to the office – or else

NEW YORK – Macy’s Inc. has set a deadline for corporate staff to move back to the New York City area and for those already there to start clocking time in the office.

According to Bloomberg, Macy’s issued a mandate yesterday that requires all employees in the New York area to spend at least two days each week working from the office. Attendance goes into effect May 13 and includes the merchandising, marketing, customer and digital teams, among others. Employees who don’t comply could face disciplinary actions.

Employees who moved away from the New York metro area during the COVID-19 pandemic have three months to move back, Bloomberg reported. Those who don’t could face termination.

In a separate piece published earlier this month, Bloomberg reported that NYC’s return-to-office rate is nearing 80%, driven largely by banks and financial institutions.
