Safe Reopening Measures – Yahoo Finance UK


Northampton, MA –News Direct– Qualcomm

Due to the COVID-19 crisis, on March 12, 2020, we moved to a global required work from home policy for employees who were able to perform their job remotely. For employees whose work required them to be onsite, we took appropriate measures – as recommended by leading public health authorities – to ensure that the work environment was safe and the risk of the virus spreading in our facilities was reduced as much as possible.

Among our efforts to support employees’ new and evolving needs, we provided personal protective equipment for onsite employees and employees working from home; implemented paid leave for employees with symptoms or who may be high risk, need to care for a family member or assist a child with school; provided options to take office equipment home; and provided additional IT equipment support. In the U.S. and India, we provided resources to employees and their dependents for immediate COVID-19 testing on campus, held large-scale vaccination events on campus and provided quarantine support.

Many employees adapted well to working remotely, and we saw increased productivity. However, we heard that many employees also missed connecting in-person with their colleagues and teams. As we planned our return to campus and our work model for the future, we focused on creating a global framework that provides flexibility while maintaining our strong culture of innovation, collaboration, openness and camaraderie – serving current employees and helping to attract future talent.

We took a carefully planned phased approach to welcoming employees back to the office in 2021. As we continued to see positive trends in vaccination rates across the U.S., and the continued easing of restrictions, we moved into Phase 2. As of July 2021, employees can work onsite as many days as they choose, provided they comply with all onsite safety protocols and requirements.

“We have been working to determine the best hybrid work approach for our unique culture. Our goal is to create a global framework that provides flexibility, while maintaining our strong culture of innovation, collaboration, openness and camaraderie – serving both our current employees and helping to attract future talent.”
