WWE President and Chief Revenue Officer Nick Khan made headlines recently when a leaked email revealed his demands for all WWE employees to return to work full-time at WWE Headquarters on 1st May.
In the original leaked email, via PWInsider, Nick Khan explained the new rules, noting that he believes it will increase productivity and communication.
“We are all fortunate to be three years, one month and fourteen days removed from the moment where stay at home orders were put in place, businesses shuttered (some permanently) and sports seasons canceled. Of course, at WWE and thanks to all of you, we continued to move forward, never missing a week of production in the safest way possible.
As I have had the good fortune of meeting with so many of you over the last few months, it has become apparent to me that our business thrives on creativity and an unparalleled work ethic. All of us physically together is a part of that. As such, we will be going back to what has always been the case prior to COVID, which is a return to five days a week in office.
Nothing replaces our ability to interact with one another as we collectively continue to build and represent our company. We will all connect better and be better.
Monday, May 1, 2023, will be the start of our full time return to office.
For those based in Stamford, our first group has moved to our new HQ and the rest of us will be there shortly. We thank you for your patience with this process. If you have not yet seen it, it is a spectacular work space that we believe you will all be quite proud of.
Thank you for all,
Updated Return Date For WWE Employees Revealed
A recent report from Fightful has suggested that the return date for WWE employees has moved back one week to 8th May. The report, authored by Brandon Thurston, also suggested that the decision has not caused the waves expected as any WWE employees were already back in the Stamford, CT headquarters:
“Sources that we spoke to said that most of the jobs that needed to be back in the WWE offices have been for quite some time, well before Nick Khan’s email to the staff this week”.
