Nick Khan Orders WWE Employees Return To Office
WWE CEO Nick Khan has told the company’s employees that the hybrid working model brought in during the pandemic is coming to an end and everyone is expected back at the office full-time.
Working from home became the norm for many when the pandemic swept the world in 2020 as offices were closed down. Since then, some companies have allowed employees to maintain some form of hybrid working but those days are coming to an end for those who work for WWE.
PWInsider has reported that company CEO Nick Khan has emailed all staff to inform them that they will be expected back in the office as of May 1st. The full email from Khan read:
“We are all fortunate to be three years, one month and fourteen days removed from the moment where stay at home orders were put in place, businesses shuttered (some permanently) and sports seasons canceled. Of course, at WWE and thanks to all of you, we continued to move forward, never missing a week of production in the safest way possible.
As I have had the good fortune of meeting with so many of you over the last few months, it has become apparent to me that our business thrives on creativity and an unparalleled work ethic. All of us physically together is a part of that. As such, we will be going back to what has always been the case prior to COVID, which is a return to five days a week in office.
Nothing replaces our ability to interact with one another as we collectively continue to build and represent our company. We will all connect better and be better.
Monday, May 1, 2023, will be the start of our full time return to office.
For those based in Stamford, our first group has moved to our new HQ and the rest of us will be there shortly. We thank you for your patience with this process. If you have not yet seen it, it is a spectacular work space that we believe you will all be quite proud of.
Thank you for all,
The move comes at a time of great uncertainty for WWE staff as Khan has also recently noted that “aggressive” cuts are coming ahead of the acquisition by Endeavor.
