While many tech firms keep workers home, T-Mobile wants an office return by next month, warns Tampa Bay Times

From Tampa Bay Times:

Although the Bellevue, Wash.-based cellular company postponed its original return date, from Sept. 20 to Oct. 25, to give workers more time to get vaccinations, it’s still urging vaccinated workers to return by the earlier date. To help returning employees feel safe, it has also limited access to its Factoria offices and other “badge-controlled” facilities to vaccinated employees.

“Because we’re taking this big step to ensure your safety at our offices, I’m also urging employees to stick to our planned September 20 or earlier date for returning to the office with your flexible resident or hybrid schedule,” Mike Sievert, T-Mobile CEO, said Aug. 31 in an internal email shared with The Seattle Times. “Our spaces are open and ready for you, and it is time to come back regularly.”

Unvaccinated employees have until Oct. 25 to ask to keep working remotely, the company said, and those requests “will be approved based on their role and circumstances,” said spokesperson Tara Darrow.

T-Mobile is developing a tool that will let employees upload vaccination documentation, which should be “in place well before” the Oct. 25 return date, Darrow said, but for now is relying on employee declarations of vaccination status.
