Business news Ubisoft: Face-to-face work would remain at the heart of “the experience” according to Jason Schreier
The Covid-19 pandemic has profoundly changed the approach to work around the world. Generalization of teleworking, alternation between face-to-face and remote work a lot of things have changed. Video games have not escaped this, and publishers are adapting.
It is on the side of Ubisoft that we learn a little more about the return to the office and the practice of teleworking. According to Jason Schreier, journalist at Bloomberg, Ubisoft sent an email to its Quebec employees to inform them that it planned to adopt a “hybrid and tailor-made approach” work, but the office “would remain the central pillar of the Ubisoft experience”. As a result, only “a small number” of employees could telecommute permanently.
According to Schreier, this decision could be partly linked to the very attractive tax credit offered in Montreal, and which would force employees to come to the office. He adds that some people have indicated that the problem could be bypassed in the event that the employees who telework remain in Quebec. However, he specifies that teleworking is only one of the very many factors which have or could have led to an extension of production and postponements, and that it cannot be considered as the sole responsible.
