Locations or roles with different office requirements

Are there corporate office locations where there is a different expectation on time spent in the office?

While there are no specific location-based on-site time requirements, lab and manufacturing facilities generally have higher on-site time due to role requirements

Are there functions or roles where there is a different expectation on time spent in the office?

The amount of in-office time is based on one's role and determined in conversation between employee and manager. Most non-production roles can be near-remote (remote near a 3M office) without approval beyond conversation between employee and supervisor. Approval is required to move beyond commuting distance, and approval is often granted if the employee does not require significant on-site time. Lab and manufacturing facility-based roles are likely to require more on-site time due to the nature of those roles.
