How’s that commuter life going? Once Amazon started requiring that most of its corporate employees return to their offices at least three days a week, downtown has been much busier. Watch those elbows, folks.

In fact, the Seattle Chamber of Commerce just released results from its study that aimed to see exactly how back-to-work is going, surveying 221 company representatives. Here’s the downtown breakdown.

  • 83% of Seattle offices have gone with the hybrid work model.
  • 9% are fully remote and 8% are fully in-person.
  • 34% require workers to show up at the office at least three days a week.
  • The busiest day is Tuesday, with 85% of employees at the office.
  • The least popular day is Friday, with 40% of workers showing up. Well, duh.
  • Some of the perks companies reported for their in-office workers included informal team building, parking benefits, and free snacks. Pizza party, anyone?
