CEO of Meta Mark Zuckerberg noted in an email to his staff that engineers who worked in the office were more productive than those who worked remotely. He used internal data analysis to back up his claim.
He continued by saying that working face-to-face with more seasoned colleagues at least three days a week helps new hires learn faster. It wasn’t just any email sent to the staff. Zuckerberg told them of the second round of layoffs, which has affected nearly 10,000 workers, through email.
Around 21,000 employees have left Meta over the course of a few months. 13% of Meta’s personnel, or 11,000 workers, were let go by the corporation back in 2022.

In his email, Zuckerberg said, “Our early analysis of performance data suggests that engineers who either joined Meta in-person and then transferred to remote or remained in-person performed better on average than people who joined remotely.”
He added, “This analysis also shows that engineers earlier in their career perform much better on average when they work in-person with their teammates at least three days a week. This requires further study, but our hypothesis is that it is still much easier to build trust in people and that those relationships help us work more effectively.”
