CNN: Google will let employees work from home until at least next summer
What do you think about working from home?
Google announced that workers will be working from home until at least July 2021:
The company had previously said most employees would be working remotely through the end of 2020, with some employees being allowed back into the office sooner.
But the decision to extend the remote work policy well into next year indicates that one of the world's largest tech companies is bracing for a long pandemic — and could prompt other businesses to follow suit.
Google CEO Sundar Pichai says the move is for the well-being of employees:
"To give employees the ability to plan ahead, we'll be extending our global voluntary work from home option through June 30, 2021 for roles that don't need to be in the office," Pichai wrote. "I hope this will offer the flexibility you need to balance work with taking care of yourselves and your loved ones over the next 12 months."
Beside Google moving to go online, Facebook and Twitter allows employees to work from home forever. The moves companies are beginning to make regarding working from home is transforming the way we work in America.
Do you think work from home will become the new norm?
