The health and safety of our employees — and people in general — is of paramount importance to us here at VMware. As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to be an active force in our lives, I want to share how we’re supporting our employees as they work in a more flexible manner. Below you’ll find a few updates on our workplace community.
VMware is encouraging and supporting our employees to make their own decision on when and how they return to VMware offices as they open. Managers and their teams are proactively having conversations about future working location expectations, post-pandemic. Employees will have choice and flexibility around where they physically work in alignment with business requirements.
Empowering Our People to Work Effectively – Wherever They May Be
As Laura Greenwald, VMware VP of Talent Acquisition shared in her update on hiring and supporting our community during COVID-19 and beyond, VMware is proactively working to help make sure our people are set up to have enjoyable, successful, and collaborative work experiences.
The foundation of VMware’s business is grounded in our ability to run, manage, connect, and protect any application on any cloud and any device. In combination with our employee’s dedication to getting things done together as “One VMware,” this enables our people and business to move forward. Below are several innovative ways that we’re enabling our people to work anywhere.

We’re Still Hiring
I’m proud to say that VMware is hiring. Our recruiting efforts are focused on VMware’s five strategic business priorities: app modernization, multi-cloud, virtual cloud network, digital workspace, and intrinsic security. If you visit the VMware Careers Site, you’ll see that we have open roles for interns, new graduates, and seasoned professionals.
Take a look at this recent VMware Careers blog post to see how you can successfully prepare for a virtual interview at VMware.
Despite navigating through tremendous change over the past few months, our employee community proved that our work can be done well regardless of our physical locations. It’s because of this that we’re actively working to redefine what the future of work looks like at VMware.
We want to meet our people where and how they work most effectively. Over the coming weeks and months, you’ll hear more from us on this topic. In the meantime, I welcome you to connect with us on the VMware Careers and VMware University Talent social media channels to get an inside look at #VMwareLife.
