Google is trying to encourage its employees to return to the office by offering a special deal at its on-campus hotel in Mountain View, California. The offer allows employees to stay at the campus hotel for $99 per night until September 30, aiming to ease the transition to a hybrid work-from-home schedule. Unlike Elon Musk’s approach at Twitter, Google is requiring employees to pay for the rooms as it falls under unapproved business travel following a policy change that reduced work-related travel and company events. The advertisement highlights the benefits of staying on campus, such as avoiding the daily commute, having more time for rest and leisure, and enjoying the hotel’s amenities. However, some employees expressed mixed feelings about the deal, with some seeing it as paying back part of their salary to the company. Google has been gradually requiring employees to return to the office three days a week since March of the previous year, and in June, the company implemented badge tracking policies to ensure employees’ in-person attendance.
