Target HQ employees to work virtually until June — at least
The majority of Target Corp. headquarters employees won’t be returning to their offices for quite a while longer. And even when they do, it might not be on an everyday basis.
The discounter informed the employees who work at its downtown Minneapolis headquarters that most of them can expect to continue to work virtually through at least June due to the continued threat of COVID-19, reported the StarTribune. Target expects to incorporate telecommuting into its future workplace plans, according to the report, and is looking at a “hybrid” model that would provide employees with more flexibility and also include face-to-face meetings.
“Importantly, our headquarters planning is not just about a date when we’ll return to our buildings,” said Melissa Kremer, chief human resources officer, in an e-mail to employees. “Like many others, we’re taking this time to reimagine the future role of the office and where and how work gets done.”
Target is the largest employer in downtown Minneapolis, with more than 8,500 workers in its corporate headquarters plus other offices.
