A recent WWE work demand by Nick Khan has been pushed back in terms of when it will begin.
Nick Khan is the WWE CEO that has been a part of the company since 2020, which was a time when the world was going through changes. That’s because the COVID-19 pandemic was changing how some businesses were run and forced employees to work from home instead of going to the office.
In the case of WWE, many staffers have been able to work from home for the last few years, but that’s about to change.
Earlier in the week, PWInsider shared the email that Nick Khan sent to WWE employees about going back to the company’s office to work.
“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,
In an update on the story, Brandon Thurston of Wrestlenomics noted that the start date is now May 8th:
“Nick Khan sent an email to staff last night pushing the start date for this to Monday, May 8, rather than May 1.”
It has also been stated by Nick Khan previously that “aggressive” cuts were coming to WWE since Endeavor announced that they had acquired WWE earlier this month.
