Tech startup Fast reopens San Francisco headquarters
In accordance with local guidelines, Fast became one of the first companies to reopen its San Francisco headquarters at 25% capacity on March 24, first day that the City of San Francisco allowed non-essential employees to return to offices.
Fast employees will now be able to reserve a space and work from its office space safely. Returning to the office is completely optional, as last year Fast rolled out Fast Flex, a flexible work policy allowing employees to work from anywhere in the world on any day of the week.
The physical office is an important option for collaboration. Each employee has their own preferred work style and should be able to choose what's most effective and aligns with their comfort level. Fast also recognizes that having its office open could provide some economic relief to local restaurants and businesses within their community, as it provides a stipend for employees to order lunch from local businesses.
