Meta, the parent of social media giant Facebook, is becoming more remote than ever as companies start going back to the office, The Wall Street Journal wrote Wednesday (March 23).
The company’s management team is spreading out to new locations far away from the Silicon Valley headquarters, with even CEO Mark Zuckerberg spending time away from the city.
According to the report, this includes Naomi Gleit, the company head of product, who’s moved to New York. Additionally, Chief Marketing Officer Alex Schultz and Guy Rosen, vice president of integrity, will both reportedly be moving to Israel soon.
Meanwhile, Chief Growth Officer Javier Olivan will be moving between California and Europe, but will be spending more time abroad now, according to the report. The report noted that Zuckerberg will be spending more time away from the company’s Menlo Park headquarters, spending time at his other homes and his compound in Hawaii instead.
“The past few years have brought new possibilities around the ways we connect and work,” said Meta spokesman Tracy Clayton. “We believe that how people work is far more important than where they work from.”
Clayton added that Zuckerberg will be spending “more than half” of his time in California and will work remotely for the rest of the year. The adoption of more liberal remote work rules comes after the company changed its name from Facebook last year.
PYMNTS recently wrote that Meta has faced issues in court over allegations of publishing scam ads for crypto featuring Australian public figures.
The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) has alleged that Meta is violating the laws there and has “aided and abetted or was knowingly concerned in false or misleading conduct and representations by the advertisers.”
The ads have featured prominent Australians, including businessman Dick Smith, TV presenter David Koch and former New South Wales Premier Mike Baird. They reportedly promoted crypto investments or money-making pursuits, though those featured didn’t consent to be included.
