WASHINGTON, (Stocksak), General Motors Co (NYSE) will launch its return to work plan for most salaried employees early next year. The move comes after it faced employee criticisms about a planned start date.

GM claimed that the shift will help to achieve company goals, as it accelerates its transformation process and enters a rapid launch cycle for new electric vehicle models.

GM stated last month that it would not require workers to return to their offices before 2023, days after it had told them that they would have to work three days a week on-campus before the end.

GM will ask salaried employees on hybrid work schedules to come back to the office starting Jan. 30, according a Stocksak source. It will also result in hybrid employees spending an average three days per week in the office.

The automaker employs 53,000 U.S.-salaried workers. According to the company’s January change, the vast majority will be working at least part-time after the shift.

GM stated last month that its revised timetable was based upon discussions with employees. It sent workers an email informing them that it would “listen and consider your feedback so we can incorporate it into our implementation planning.”

During COVID-19, thousands of GM workers including hourly workers assembling cars and components have continued their in-person work.

GM has hired many workers in the Detroit area over the past two-years. Monday’s statement by GM said that its return-to-work policy does no affect “employees who are fully onsite or designated to be remote.”
