Companies Delaying Return To Office: Fortune 100 Analysis

Every month, we analyze and update every Fortune 100’s return to office (RTO) policy.

As it currently stands, 56 of the Fortune 100 (56%) have some form of RTO delay… whether the delay is in the past, current, or ongoing. Here are the four types of delays that have landed these companies on the list:

  • Past delays: These companies have returned to the office in some way (you’ll see a date in the “RTO Date” column) but had delayed in the past (you’ll see dates in the “Postponements” column).
  • Yet to be determined: These companies previously worked in office spaces but have publicly announcement they do not have a formal return-to-office date. These companies have ongoing delays.
  • No return: These companies have announced they will never ask employees to return. They’ve likely switched to fully remote companies.
  • Unknown: These companies have RTO delays and currently have not announced a new date.

Return To Office: Our Definition

A “return to office” date is the day in which a company has announced it will expect employees to show up in-person for work after being temporarily allowed to work remotely.

 

Is one of our policies out of date?

We have a recurring task to update every policy once per month, but we may have missed an announcement in the interim. If one of our policies is out of date, please fill in the form below to let us know. We’ll follow up through email and then update the table right away (and give you credit if you’d like).

In case we have a question
Where did the company announce its new return-to-office policy?

We hope you find this article useful. Just so you know, Buildremote may collect a small share of sales from the links on this page to help keep this site running.
