Jakarta, CNBC Indonesia – Badan Pengawas Obat dan Makanan (BPOM) menemukan empat kosmetik yang tidak sesuai ketentuan peredaran. Nantinya sanksi berupa pencabutan izin akan diberikan karena iklan mengandung unsur erotisme.

Dijelaskan, empat produk itu tidak memenuhi ketentuan peraturan yang berlaku karena visual iklan yang ditampilkan.

“Karena visual iklan yang ditampilkan jelas menyimpang dari tujuan dan kegunaan atau kemanfaatan kosmetik,” jelas Deputi Bidang Pengawasan Obat Tradisional, Suplemen Kesehatan, dan Kosmetik BPOM RI, Mohamad Kashuri, dikutip dari detikcom, Sabtu (15/3/2024).

Empat kosmetik itu antara lain :

Agar Lamaran Kerja Diterima, Hindari 3 Hal Ini

Jakarta, CNBC Indonesia – Para pencari kerja perlu menghidari hal-hal yang berpotensi gagal dalam melamar pekerjaan. Bedasarkan situs mencari kerja Monster, sepanjang Januari 2024, sebesar 95% orang sedang mencari pekerjaan baru tahun ini.

Sayangnya, lebih dari separuhnya atau sebesar 68% orang merasa akan sulit mendapatkan pekerjaan karena kondisi ekonomi saat ini.

Mengutip CNBC Indonesia, meskipun peluang mendapatkan kerja cukup menantang, ada beberapa cara yang dapat dihindari. Menurut mantan perekrut Amazon yang saat ini menjabat sebagai CEO perusahaan pembinaan karier Talent Paradigm, Lindsay Mustain mengatakan, ada sesuatu yang disebut perilaku mencari validasi, alias putus asa.

Baca: BPJS Kesehatan Buka Lowongan Kerja Lulusan D3, Daftar Now!

Perilaku tersebut akan mendatangkan energi negatif karena dapat mengusir peluang. Sehingga, para pencari kerja sebaiknya menghindari 3 hal ini.

1. Jangan melamar ke sebuah perusahaan berulang kali

Hindari melamar pekerjaan di perusahaan secara berulang-ulang, terutama dalam waktu singkat. Mustain memandang pada pelamar yang sudah melamar 20 kali dalam dua tahun terakhir dan belum dipekerjakan masuk dalam daftar blacklist karena dianggap ada yang salah dengan kandidat tersebut sehingga mereka belum juga dipekerjakan sampai saat ini.

Terlepas dari seberapa cocoknya Anda dengan pekerjaan itu, perekrut kemungkinan tidak akan meluangkan waktu untuk menyelidiki CV Anda lebih jauh.

“Ini adalah bagaimana Anda bisa masuk dalam daftar hitam,” katanya.

Cobalah untuk membatasi lamaran internal hingga maksimal lima posisi yang sangat sesuai dengan Anda di perusahaan.

2. Jangan gunakan spanduk ‘terbuka untuk bekerja’ di LinkedIn

Baca: Pengguna Bayar Buat Dapat Kerja, LinkedIn Cuan Rp 26 T

Memasang status “terbuka untuk bekerja” di LinkedIn sebaiknya dihindari. Sebab, hal itu menginformasikan bahwa sang pelanar sangat membutuhkan pekerjaan. Perekrut aman beranggapan bahwa Anda mungkin tidak pilih-pilih dalam hal peluang kerja.

Hal itu juga memberi anggapan bahwa Anda tidak berfokus pada kemanuan karir atau memikirkan cara yang terukur yang membantu Anda meningkatkan keterampilan dan menjadi lebih baik.

“Hal ini mengurangi kesan sebagai kandidat berkaliber tinggi,” katanya.

Sementara, CEO dari pasar talenta Continuum dan mantan perekrut Google, Nolan Church juga mengatakan hal yang senada. Menggunakan spanduk “terbuka untuk bekerja” di LinkedIn terkesan sang kandidiat berputus asa.

“benar-benar terasa seperti keputusasaan bagi manajer perekrutan,” katanya kepada CNBC Make It.

“Ini seperti meminta selebaran di sudut jalan,” kata Mustain.

3. Jangan terlihat ‘sangat terluka dan sakit hati’ di media sosial

Terakhir, jika Anda sedang menganggur, jangan memposting status pengangguran Anda di media sosial, terutama jika Anda cenderung melakukannya karena sakit hati. Mustain memberikan contoh postingan seperti berikut ini:

“Saya baru saja di-PHK dan saya memiliki dua anak di rumah dan saya sangat membutuhkan pekerjaan lain, sesegera mungkin. Jadi, jika Anda bisa mengenalkan saya pada setiap orang yang Anda kenal yang memiliki lowongan pekerjaan, saya akan sangat berterima kasih.”

Meskipun menyedihkan dan mengundang simpati, orang-orang yang mengunggah status-status seperti itu “terlihat sangat terluka dan sakit hati,” katanya.

Mereka “menumpahkan darah di media sosial.” Pada akhirnya, mereka menunjukkan kelemahan dengan cara yang sama seperti orang-orang yang memasang spanduk “terbuka untuk bekerja” di profil LinkedIn mereka. Sudah jelas mereka membutuhkan sesuatu.

Postingan seperti itu “mengusir orang karena mereka tidak datang dari tempat yang kuat,” kata Mustain.

Sebaliknya, jika Anda baru saja di-PHK dan ingin menunjukkan kepada dunia bahwa Anda sedang mencari peluang baru, cobalah membingkai situasi ini sebagai sebuah awal yang baru atau kesempatan untuk berkembang dan bagikan contoh konkret dari kontribusi dan kesuksesan Anda di masa lalu.

Anda juga dapat membagikan apa yang telah Anda pelajari dan bagaimana pengalaman Anda telah membekali Anda untuk menghadapi tantangan di masa depan.

“Semua ini menunjukkan kemampuan beradaptasi dan pola pikir yang berpandangan ke depan kepada calon pemberi kerja,” katanya.

“Ingatlah Anda tidak membutuhkan pekerjaan apa pun. Anda menginginkan https://sebelumnyaada.com/pekerjaan yang baik,” tegasnya.

Biden Serang Netanyahu, AS Nyatakan Dukung Negara Palestina

Jakarta, CNBC Indonesia – Presiden Joe Biden mengatakan bahwa dia yakin Perdana Menteri Israel Benjamin Netanyahu “lebih merugikan Israel daripada membantu Israel” dalam pendekatan perangnya melawan Hamas di Gaza.

Biden menyatakan dukungannya terhadap hak Israel untuk mengejar Hamas setelah serangan 7 Oktober, namun ia mengatakan kepada Netanyahu bahwa “dia harus lebih memperhatikan hilangnya nyawa tak berdosa sebagai konsekuensi dari tindakan yang diambil.”

Biden selama berbulan-bulan telah memperingatkan bahwa Israel berisiko kehilangan dukungan internasional atas meningkatnya korban sipil di Gaza, dan pernyataan terbarunya menunjukkan makin tegangnya hubungan antara kedua pemimpin tersebut.

Biden mengatakan mengenai jumlah korban tewas di Gaza. “Hal ini bertentangan dengan apa yang diperjuangkan Israel. Dan menurutku itu adalah kesalahan besar,” katanya, dilansir Associated Press.

Biden mengatakan potensi invasi Israel ke kota Rafah di Gaza, tempat lebih dari 1,3 juta warga Palestina berlindung, adalah “garis merah” baginya, namun ia mengatakan ia tidak akan menghentikan senjata seperti pencegat rudal Iron Dome yang melindungi warga sipil Israel dari serangan roket di wilayah tersebut.

“Itu adalah garis merah,” katanya ketika ditanya tentang Rafah, “tetapi saya tidak akan pernah meninggalkan Israel. Pertahanan Israel masih penting, jadi tidak ada garis merah. Saya akan memotong semua senjata agar mereka tidak memiliki Iron Dome untuk melindungi mereka.”

Negara Palestina

Sebelumnya, dalam pidato kenegaraan tahunannya, Biden memperingatkan Israel bahwa mereka tidak dapat menggunakan bantuan sebagai alat tawar-menawar dalam pembicaraan gencatan senjata Israel dan Hamas di Jalur Gaza.

“Saya mengatakan ini kepada para pemimpin Israel: bantuan kemanusiaan tidak bisa menjadi pertimbangan sekunder atau alat tawar-menawar. Melindungi dan menyelamatkan nyawa tak berdosa harus menjadi prioritas,” kata Biden, seperti dikutip AFP.

Biden menyusun rencana, yang diumumkan oleh para pejabat pada hari sebelumnya, untuk mendirikan dermaga sementara di Mediterania guna membawa bantuan ke Gaza, tempat PBB telah memperingatkan risiko kelaparan.

“Saya telah bekerja tanpa henti untuk segera melakukan gencatan senjata yang akan berlangsung selama enam minggu,” katanya. “Kesepakatan itu akan memulangkan para sandera dan meringankan krisis kemanusiaan yang tidak dapat ditoleransi, serta membangun sesuatu yang lebih bertahan lama.”

Biden juga menegaskan kembali dukungannya terhadap pembentukan negara Palestina, sebuah tujuan jangka panjang yang ditentang oleh pemerintahan sayap kanan Perdana Menteri Israel Benjamin Netanyahu.

“Saat kita menatap masa depan, satu-satunya solusi nyata adalah solusi dua negara,” kata Biden.

Everton points deduction: Punishment reduced from 10 points to six after appeal

Everton corner flag at Goodison Park
Everton have won only eight Premier League games this season
Everton’s penalty for breaching Premier League financial rules has been reduced from 10 points to six after an appeal.

The club were immediately docked 10 points in November for breaking profit and sustainability rules (PSR) in the three-year period to 2021-22.

The punishment – the biggest in Premier League history – dropped Everton from 14th to 19th in the table.The reduction lifts them from 17th to 15th, although the club is facing another possible points deduction.Everton, who admitted the breach, said they are “satisfied” with the reduction though they now face an anxious wait after being charged in January along with Nottingham
Forest 
for alleged breaches in their accounts for 2022-23.That case must be heard by 8 April, however, any appeal could take that process to 24 May, the week after the season has concluded.

  • The Premier League table before (-10 points) and after Everton's appeal (-6 points)
    The Premier League table before (-10 points) and after Everton’s appeal (-6 points)
    A Premier League statement read: “Everton FC appealed the sanction imposed against it on nine grounds, each of which related to the sanction rather than the fact of the breach.””A three-person appeal board concluded that the independent commission which imposed the 10-point penalty “made legal errors” on two grounds.It said the commission was “wrong” to punish Everton for being “less than frank” over what it told the Premier League about its new stadium debt.The appeal board also said the commission was “wrong not to take into account available benchmarks” and that a six-point sanction was “broadly in line” with English Football League (EFL) guidelines, with Sheffield Wednesday’s six-point deduction in 2020 when their losses were rising used as a guide.Everton said the appeal board’s decision to overturn the commission’s finding that they failed to act in good faith was “an incredibly important point of principle”.
    Everton points deduction: BBC Sport’s Simon Stone says story not over yet
    The outstanding charge against Everton could not be heard until their appeal against the 10-point deduction was competed.Everton say they remain “fully committed to co-operating” with the Premier League over the second charge.Everton, who have not won in the league win since 16 December, are now five points clear of the relegation zone with 12 games remaining, having leapfrogged Forest and Brentford.Meanwhile, Luton find themselves four points from safety, albeit Hatters boss Rob Edwards welcomed the “clarity” around the situation and said his players just needed to focus on their own performances.”We were in the bottom three before it anyway, but now it looks like we’re four points behind Nottingham Forest with a game in hand so the situation is the same from our point of view.”How did we get here?PSR, aimed at promoting financial stability among clubs, were introduced in 2015-16.English top-flight clubs are permitted to lose a maximum of £105m in a three-year spell, or £35m per season, but Everton recorded losses of £125m over three years.The Premier League referred Everton to an independent commission in March 2023, a month during which they posted financial losses for the fifth successive year after reporting a £44.7m deficit in 2021-22.The commission said Everton’s issues were overspending – largely on new players – an inability to sell players and a lower than expected 16th-place finish in 2021-22, which caused a loss of expected income of about £21m.Thousands of Everton fans held anti-Premier League protests following the original deduction, while a several regional politicians raised concerns, including Mayor of Liverpool Steve Rotheram and Mayor for Greater Manchester Andy Burnham.Everton manager Sean Dyche said on Friday that the wait for a verdict may have had a psychological effect on his players because of the uncertainty surrounding their league position.

    What did the appeal panel say?The initial commission said Everton were “less than frank” in relation to what they told the Premier League about their new stadium debt as development continues for the move from Goodison Park to Bramley Moore Dock late next year.The initial charges said Everton breached Premier League rule B15, which imposes an obligation of “utmost good faith”.However, the appeal board said: “Whilst the representations made by the club about the stadium debt were materially wrong, it was not the Premier League’s case that that was anything other than an innocent mistake.”These errors were material, in that they affected approach and conclusion of the commission in relation to sanction.”Everton said the appeal board’s decision to overturn the commission’s finding that they failed to act in good faith was “an incredibly important point of principle”.The appeal panel also said the six-point reduction was “not out of kilter with any other available benchmark, including those under the Premier League rules themselves (such as the automatic sanction for insolvency of nine points)”.
    What happens next?By the time Everton’s second charge is heard, they may only have six league fixtures remaining.In September owner Farhad Moshiri agreed to sell his 94% stake in Everton to American investment fund 777 Partners.The takeover has been cleared by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and the Football Association (FA), but Everton are still awaiting Premier League approval.Nottingham Forest and Manchester City are the only other clubs to have been charged by the Premier League for financial breaches, with Forest’s case due to be heard next week on Thursday and Friday, 7 and 8 March.Reigning champions City were referred to an independent commission in February 2023 over more than 100 alleged breaches between 2009 and 2018.‘Everton’s biggest result of the season’ – analysisDan Roan, BBC sports editorThis might be Everton’s biggest result of the season so far. They will be relieved that their punishment has been reduced, and will feel vindicated after describing the original 10-point deduction as excessive.Significantly, the appeal board found that the commission had made “legal errors” on two grounds – including that the club failed to act in utmost good faith.That finding – and the regained four points – will be a source of considerable satisfaction among their fans, many of whom were furious with the Premier League over what they saw as an unfair sanction. Their hope is that this boosts their team’s survival hopes, and provides some clarity over its proposed takeover by a US investment firm.However, while the club is now five points clear of the relegation zone, it will also be braced for the outcome of another charge of breaking financial rules for another, more recent period.Nottingham Forest were also charged and referred to an independent commission for that same period, and today’s news will be of some comfort to them too as a ‘lighter’ punishment benchmark has now been set.Manchester City are the only other Premier League club to have been charged with breaching financial rules. They deny wrongdoing, and such is the scale and specifics of their case, it may be unwise to attach too much significance to today’s appeal result in relation to them.‘A sense of relief’Mike Richards, fan writerIt’s difficult to know how to feel after hearing the news that Everton have had four points returned on appeal. The initial 10-point deduction was draconian, with fans, players and the manager all punished for something out of their control.Ask many Evertonians and they’d have told you they expected nothing back, so there may well be some welcome surprise amongst the fanbase.Personally, there’s a sense of relief that a line can be drawn under the first charge, but utter dismay that six points is still deemed a fair and proportionate punishment.The club have been used and continue to be so, in a game between league and government. That should never sit right with any fair-minded football fan.I’ve got a real hope that the clarity and closure provides the players and manager with a mental lift going into the upcoming fixtures.They have all operated admirably in the most trying of circumstances. This shouldn’t be forgotten when

    Carabao Cup: ‘Jurgen Klopp’s kids beat Chelsea’s billion-pound bottle-jobs’ – pundits react to Liverpool triumph

    Liverpool have now beaten Chelsea in three Wembley finals in the past two years, having also defeated them on penalties in both the FA Cup and EFL Cup finals of 2022
    Liverpool have now beaten Chelsea in three Wembley finals in the past two years, having also defeated them on penalties in both the FA Cup and EFL Cup finals of 2022

    Plenty might have expected a Liverpool love-in from Jamie Carragher after his beloved Reds’ dramatic Carabao Cup final triumph over Chelsea.

    But it was his sparring rival Gary Neville who put his Manchester United allegiances firmly to one side, lauding Liverpool – and criticising the beaten Blues.

    “Klopp’s kids against the blue billion-pound bottle-jobs,” remarked the former England full-back on Sky Sports.

    “This is Klopp’s last few months [as Liverpool boss], but it will be as proud a moment as he’s had.”

    Virgil van Dijk’s header two minutes from the end of extra time settled a rollercoaster Wembley final as an injury-hit and youthful Liverpool lifted a record-extending 10th League Cup.

    The Reds’ average age at the final whistle was less than 22, with five players aged 20 or under and several hugely inexperienced.

    Mauricio Pochettino’s Chelsea fielded a youthful side themselves, with the average age of their starting XI under 24 and younger than Liverpool’s, but they had plenty more experience than their counterparts.

    “Chelsea will regret it, these moments will live with you for a long, long time. I have no sympathy for them whatsoever,” Neville said of a Blues side who missed a host of chances in normal time and were outplayed in extra time.

    “Pochettino’s men have shrunk right in front of our eyes and right in front of their own fans.

    “I can’t believe Chelsea in extra time, what has happened? They have not played, they have not turned up.

    “You can lose any game but you can’t shrink like that when Liverpool had five kids on the pitch.”

    ‘Special managers do special things’

    https://emp.bbc.com/emp/SMPj/2.51.0/iframe.htmlEFL Cup the most special trophy I’ve ever won – Jurgen Klopp

    Injury-hit Liverpool went into Sunday’s final with a squad peppered with teenagers – amid an injury crisis that has landed several superstars on the Anfield treatment table.

    Mohamed Salah, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Diogo Jota, Darwin Nunez, Dominik Szoboszlai and goalkeeper Alisson Becker were among those only able to watch on at Wembley.

    But Klopp showed his trust in the club’s future as his starters tired, bringing several youngsters off the bench – and they more than matched the expensively-assembled Blues, particularly in extra time.

    “Special managers do special things,” raved Neville. “It’s a bantamweight squad but punches like a heavyweight and that is because of Klopp.

    “It is Klopp’s final lap and he has run that bend well, but he is a workaholic and he will have them ready because he knows the big, big games are still to play for.

    “Those young lads, you cannot believe how important this will be in their lives. Klopp has everything you would want in a football manager.”

    The German will leave the club this summer after a trophy-laden nine years in charge but has the chance to bow out with an unprecedented quadruple.

    Liverpool are in the last 16 of both the Europa League and FA Cup – and, of course, sit atop the Premier League with 12 games of the season remaining.

    “If ever there was a match that summed up Klopp as a manager, this was it,” added former Liverpool midfielder Jamie Redknapp. “The passion, the desire, absolutely incredible. What a win.”

    Indeed, the only downside could be what life at Liverpool could look like after Klopp departs.

    “He has absolutely transformed this club,” Carragher added. “I said when he announced he was leaving these players would want to send him out with a bang and they have started out well.”

    “How do you follow Jurgen Klopp?” added Redknapp. “A leader of men, he has led a city. An incredible human being.

    “Trying to come to Liverpool after what he’s done and what he’s created, it’s virtually impossible. It is.

    “Every Liverpool fan around the world has looked up to that man and what he’s achieved.”

    Even ex-Chelsea and England winger Karen Carney agreed, adding: “I am not a Liverpool fan but I feel emotional because he will be leaving. What he has achieved is unbelievable, what a guy.”

    ‘What a captain, what a leader’

    Virgil van Dijk cost Liverpool £75m from Southampton in 2018
    Virgil van Dijk cost Liverpool £75m from Southampton in 2018

    Van Dijk has often been pinpointed as Klopp’s most important signing in his time at Liverpool, the catalyst for a defensive improvement that has led to the Reds becoming close to serial silverware winners.

    Not only did he pop up with the headline-grabbing winner, he also marshalled an inexperienced back-line – particularly after Klopp’s substitutions – that somehow, against all odds, kept the big-spending Blues at bay.

    “What a captain, what a leader – everything revolves around Virgil van Dijk,” said ex-England striker Alan Shearer on BBC Radio 5 Live.

    “He couldn’t come off, Liverpool needed him, the amount of times he stopped Chelsea…”

    Carragher added: “We will talk about Klopp’s kids but that was colossal from Van Dijk,” while Redknapp described the winner as “fitting” for “one of the Premier League greats”.

    “When he first came in, the fee [£75m] paid raised a few eyebrows, but he’s more than repaid it,” said former Sheffield United boss Paul Heckingbottom on BBC Radio 5 Live.

    “All of their success has coincided with the arrivals of Van Dijk and Alisson.”

    ‘Football not just about money’

    Chelsea have spent more than £1bn on transfer and loan fees since Todd Boehly took over ownership of the club in the summer of 2022.

    But they finished 12th in the Premier League last season, sit 11th this term and have not won a trophy since Thomas Tuchel led them to the Champions League, Uefa Super Cup and Club World Cup crowns in 2021.

    Such glory days seem long ago for a club that has now lost its past six domestic cup finals – including three to Liverpool.

    Manager Mauricio Pochettino also remains without a trophy in English football after several near misses with former club Tottenham.

    “It’s unthinkable for Chelsea not to win it,” said Carragher. “Pochettino will never have a better opportunity if you look at this Liverpool team that is now out.

    “This is a really bad one for Chelsea, it was so important for Pochettino to get that trophy.

    “This shows football is not just about money. It is about character, playing for the manager. Chelsea just haven’t found that https://sebelumnyaada.com/ at the moment.”

    Bournemouth 0-1 Manchester City: Pep Guardiola praises players as win closes gap at top

    Pep Guardiola praised his Manchester City players as “supermen” as they kept up their chase for a fourth straight league title by beating Bournemouth.

    Phil Foden’s goal was enough for a narrow and nervy 1-0 Premier League win at Vitality Stadium, which moves City one point behind leaders Liverpool.

    City manager Guardiola praised his team for finding a way to win having played in midweek against Brentford.

    “I adore my players – they are supermen,” Guardiola told Sky Sports.

    “They are so good. Where we come from, for many years, playing every three days – they [Bournemouth] had seven days to prepare for the game and we always have less.

    “We demand too much of our players but they respond. I know people say ‘they earn a lot of money’ but it [the schedule] is too much. Honestly.

    But business must go on and it surprises me every time how we are still there. They have an incredible character and are so competitive – even when they are tired, they give extra.

    “Our fans have to be so proud of these guys.”

    City toiled at times at Bournemouth on their way to a second successive 1-0 victory, after beating Brentford by the same score on Tuesday as they continue their attempt to be the first side to win four successive top-flight English titles.

    Guardiola defended his team, who are also in contention for back-to back-trebles as they compete in the FA Cup and Champions League.

    “The last 10-15 minutes were tough,” he said. “We won the Treble and people think we have to win every game 4-0, 5-0 but that is not the reality and hopefully soon we can have a week off and refresh our minds and legs.”

    City next travel to Luton in the FA Cup fifth round on Tuesday (20:00 GMT), before a local derby against Manchester United next weekend followed by the second leg of their Champions League last-16 tie with Copenhagen on 6 March.

    It is a hectic schedule, but defender John Stones says City can deal with it.

    “We thrive off the pressure,” Stones told Sky Sports.

    “It’s just focusing on ourselves – every game is a final for us. They come thick and fast now and we know we have to https://sebelumnyaada.com/ perform well.”

    The CEOs drawing a hard line on return-to-office policies

    Some companies are staying flexible about coming back to the office – but others are putting their foot down in a way they haven’t since the pandemic.

    Throughout the past couple of years, many employers have been relatively lenient about office returns, even in stricter industries like finance and consulting. In response, employees have largely shown a preference for remote work.

    By July 2023, data from Kastle Systems, measuring entry swipes at office buildings, showed the average workplace occupancy among 41,000 businesses in the US sat at around 50%. In response to diminished attendance, some of the world’s biggest firms have even been forced to slash their real estate footprints

    “Senior leaders are running out of patience,” says Brent Cassell, vice president, advisory in the HR practice of consulting firm Gartner, based in Virginia, US. “Many companies formally introduced hybrid working schedules in spring 2022, but most strategies were characterised as soft reopenings: ‘We want you back, your badges work, we won’t check attendance’. But they realised after inviting them back and offering ‘Free Bagel Tuesdays‘ that no one came.”

    Now as employees return to work following summer breaks, many may well find that employers expect them to take up the commuter lifestyle again. 

    “There’s been a shift among Fortune 500 companies, moving from a flexible hybrid strategy to a much more structured approach of set days teams are expected to be in the office,” says Cassell. “And if the likes of Starbucks, Disney and Google all say they need their employees back at their desks, it’s likely that smaller companies will see their example and follow suit.”

    The announcement that Zoom, the communications tech company that has become synonymous with working from home, is now requiring workers to follow a hybrid work schedule marks a major shift.

    Zoom is expected to roll out its return-to-office mandate in September. Cassell says the autumn timing is significant. “In the US, Labor Day at the beginning of the month signifies the end of summer and the start of fall: vacations are over, and kids are back to school. The changing of the seasons signifies that it’s time to get back to work and begin a more regular work schedule.” 

    The last three years have seen companies attempt to implement return-to-office plans centred around the month of September – notably, JPMorgan Chase in 2020Google in 2021 and Apple in 2022 all tied their plans to post-summer.

    “Autumn has that ‘back-to-school’ mentality as leadership and employees return to work after holidays,” says Sue Asprey Price, CEO Work Dynamics in EMEA at commercial real estate firm JLL, in London. “Now, we’re seeing more direct communications from companies suggesting which days of the week they’d like to see their employees in the office – it’s often with a September deadline.”

    There are signs that this autumn will mean record numbers of employees head back to their offices since Covid-19. According to August 2023 data from workplace tech firm Eptura, seen by BBC Worklife, desk bookings among 2,200 businesses have grown by 56% in the US and 46% in the UK since last autumn. The trend is cross-sector: while banking and finance jobs have the highest number of desk bookings, with a 68% year-over-year uptick, media and entertainment desk bookings have spiked by 123%.

    The return-to-office rhetoric from companies has intensified as well.

    For example, Meta has introduced an ‘In-Person Time Policy‘, effective from 5 September, in which card swipes will be tracked – non-compliance is deemed a disciplinary issue, potentially resulting in termination. Amazon is also sending disciplinary emails to workers not attending the office at least three days per week. In a meeting earlier this month, Amazon CEO Andy Jassy told employees who didn’t want to comply with the rule that “it’s probably not going to work out for you at Amazon because we are going back to the office at least three days a week”.

    Such mandates coincide with bosses now having greater leverage against a backdrop of layoffs, rising cost of living and cooling job market, say experts. “One side of this is that job switching behaviour has slowed, and power has shifted back to employers,” says Cassell. “Some may now feel that, for the first time in a long time, they’re able to enforce stronger return-to-office mandates.”

    Some business leaders are naturally sceptical about remote working, says Jeetu Patel, executive vice president and general manager, security and collaboration, at digital communications technology firm Cisco, in San Jose, US. They may sense this is their best opportunity to enforce fixed hybrid schedules, and abandon flexible approaches, he adds. “There’s a group of people that believe that all kinds of work is done better in person. It may be because that’s what they’ve experienced, or their organisation lacks the culture to make distributed teams work.”

    The return-to-office trend seems to be only heading one way, says Asprey Price, citing JLL data that shows office attendance among its European clients has now reached 74% of pre-pandemic levels – the highest figure since Covid-19. “Last autumn, firms were still trying to decide their longer-term hybrid policies, and there was a lack of clarity around Covid variants,” she adds. “Now, there seems to be more confident statements on office-based culture and in-person working being integral to their business.”

    While the post-summer return may not mean waiting on the train platform Monday to Friday like the days of old, it seems workers will increasingly become acutely familiar with the four walls of their offices once again. The physical space is too important to bosses, https://sebelumnyaada.com/ says Asprey Price, for workers to skirt returns this time.
