Amazon has said it will “block promotions” for employees who refuse to come into the office for at least three days a week.

Managers will be notified if staff do not comply and, according to messages seen by Business Insider, vice-president approval will be needed if these employees want a promotion.

In an internal announcement, staff were told: “Managers own the promotion process, which means it is their responsibility to support your growth through regular conversations and stretch assignments, and to complete all required inputs for a promotion.
