Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey told his employees Tuesday that many of them will be allowed to work from home (WFH) “forever”, even after the coronavirus pandemic ends.
“Opening offices will be our decision,” a Twitter spokesperson said. “When and if our employees come back, will be theirs.”
“The past few months have proven we can make it work. So if our employees are in a role and situation that enables them to work from home and they want to continue to do so forever, we will make that happen.”
Major tech companies such as Facebook and Google were early to move to a work-from-home model and have also been the most cautious in planning for employees to return to the office.
- Google has told employees that the vast majority of them will work from home until 2021.
- Similarly, Facebook will let employees who are able to work from home do so until next year.
So, if you work at Facebook or Google, you don’t have to wear pants again till 2021. If you work for Twitter, you don’t have to wear pants ever again.
