Mazda Leans Into ‘Virtual First’ Office

Mazda North American Operations employees were recently informed of a new “virtual first” workplace.

The option, set to launch later this year, is the Irvine-based automaker’s answer to the future work environment for its employees.

“MNAO is committed to providing workplace options to employees that enable them to optimize their productivity and work-life balance, while having access to the tools and resources necessary to effectively perform in their role. MNAO’s new ‘virtual first’ workplace model provides the ability for most positions in the organization to be performed remotely on a frequent or regular basis,” the company said in a statement provided to the Business Journal.

Mazda employees will be able to put in a request for their preferred work location starting later this year.

CEO and President Jeffrey Guyton, who added chief executive to his title in June, had told the Business Journal at the time of his promotion that most Mazda employees were working from home and the company was assessing the situation based on “local conditions and the comfort level of our employees.”

The automaker already had the infrastructure in place prior to the pandemic to make that transition easier with IT upgrades that allowed for remote work in March of last year.

The business seemed to do just fine, despite the shift. Mazda ended last year with sales growth and was one of the few major U.S. automakers—alongside Tesla and Volvo—to notch 2020 year-over-year sales increases.
