The news that Sandy Springs-based UPS will require employees to come into the office five days a week starting in March has sparked discussion about remote work policies in the post-pandemic era.

The policies on returning to the office versus working from home vary widely among different workforces and companies.

Here’s what a few of metro Atlanta’s largest and highest-profile companies have to say about their policies for returning to the office:

Coca-Cola Co.

“Our purpose, to refresh the world and make a difference, is best served when we are together in person, more often. We strive to cultivate a culture and environment that optimizes the synergy of in-person collaboration with the flexibility provided by remote work. To achieve this balance, our collective commitment is to come together in person a minimum of three days a week, either in the office, out in the market, or in face-to-face meetings with teams, customers, partners, suppliers or bottlers.”

The Home Depot

“We have a hybrid approach for remote and in-office work – so, some associates come into the office four days a week, while others may continue primarily working from home.”

The company noted that “only a small fraction of our approximately 470,000+ associates work in an office.”

Delta Air Lines

“Delta expects corporate staff to work in the office but empowers leaders and employees with responsible flexibility.”


“Beginning Monday, March 4, non-ops UPSers who are based on UPS campuses around the world will return to work in the office five days a week. A limited number of previously approved remote positions will continue with sign-off from the Executive Leadership Team.”
