    Ford again delays return to office, adds new short-term remote option

    Nearly a year and a half since the COVID-19 pandemic prompted a massive shift to remote work and amid another resurgence of the virus, Ford Motor Co. on Wednesday said it is once again pushing back its return-to-office plans — and introducing even more flexibility into its work-from-home policies.

    The Dearborn automaker informed thousands of salaried employees Wednesday that they should not expect to return to campuses until at least January. The change is due in part to the uptick in key COVID-19 metrics amid the spread of the highly-contagious delta variant and lagging vaccination rates in parts of the U.S. and around the world.

    The announcement applies to non-site-dependent employees in North America, South America and “most” of Ford’s International Markets Group, which includes dozens of countries. In the meantime, as the COVID-19 situation evolves, the company said it would “explore opportunities for team members to return on-site and experience the hybrid model.”
