Spotify's 'Work From Anywhere' Could Be The Blueprint For How Employers View The Future of Work

Spotify is changing the way their employees work from home.

With stay-at-home orders and quarantine still in place for coming up on a year, the streaming giant held a media roundtable to discuss how they’re implementing new strategies for their Spotifiers (current employees).

Work From Anywhere is a distributed-first mentality that will give employees the opportunity to elect whether they’d prefer to work mostly at home or in the office — called their Work Mode — along with their geographic location.

Employees will be allowed to choose between an Office Mix or Home Mix every 12 months.

“As part of our ongoing Dynamic Workplace effort, Spotify is reevaluating its office spaces across the globe for increased sustainability, flexibility, and wellbeing to ensure that all of our employees, regardless of ability, situation or how often they come into the office, can do so comfortably and efficiently,” the company shared with AfroTech.”Work From Anywhere will benefit workplace culture and enable Spotify to attract and retain the most diverse and innovative talent in the tech industry, ultimately benefiting existing employees, creators and Spotify’s 345MM+ listeners. ”

Spotify’s ultimate goal of the new design approach is to ensure that all employees are afforded the opportunity to have a place where not only they can focus, but collaborate and create.

The company is also restructuring the way that they look at salaries.

“We are committing a national salary range for the U.S. Same market benchmark based on the job you do in the U.S., not who you are as a person or where you might live,” the company said.

Looks like Spotify may be creating the blueprint for companies as they continue to determine what the future of work looks like for years to come.
