New Model Allows 3M Employees To Choose How And Where They Work
11 Aug 2021
Amidst the pandemic, one of Minnesota’s largest employers is permanently changing how and where its employees can work.
3M is unrolling a one-of-a-kind plan to permanently give employees more work-life balance. The new plan will affect most of their 90,000 workers.
Minnesota-based 3M is going full throttle these days, making everything from respirators to adhesives to surgical equipment. But the Maplewood parking lot is a bit of a ghost town as employees like Jeanne Hoppe work from home. The operations specialist and mom of three is still working remotely with most of the 3M workforce.
“I’m able to go to school activities, I’m able to go to my family’s sporting events. I’m able to take my own dog for a walk,” Hoppe said.
