Disney CEO Bob Iger Orders Employees To Return To The Office Four Days A Week

2 min read


A little more than a month after rejoining the Disney ship, CEO Bob Iger has begun to crack down on the hybrid mode of working in the company. Robert Iger, In a memo, has told the remote employees that they will be needed to work in the office at least four days a week starting March 1.

“As I’ve been meeting with teams throughout the company over the past few months, I’ve been reminded of the tremendous value in being together with the people you work with,” said Iger in the memo accessed by CNBC. 

“As you’ve heard me say many times, creativity is the heart and soul of who we are and what we do at Disney. And in a creative business like ours, nothing can replace the ability to connect, observe, and create with peers that comes from being physically together, nor the opportunity to grow professionally by learning from leaders and mentors.”

 “I worry long term about the negative impact on people who have decided not to spend as much time at the office. I’m going to spend a lot of time here, and I hope that it’s not lonely.”

“We thank Chapek for his service to Disney over his long career, including navigating the company through the unprecedented challenges of the pandemic,” said Susan Arnold, the board chairman whilst announcing the decision. 

“The Board has concluded that as Disney embarks on an increasingly complex period of industry transformation, Bob Iger is uniquely situated to lead the company through this pivotal period.”

“I fundamentally believe that storytelling is what fuels this company, and it belongs at the center of how we organise our businesses. This is a moment of great change and opportunity for our company as we begin our second century.”

Bob Iger strolled down in 2020 after being Disney’s CEO for 15 years. Under his watch, the company grew leaps and bounds, creating an inheritance that has taken a rather significant hit in the last year or two.
