It was reported that tech giant, Google, will allow their full-time and contract staff to work remotely until at least July 2021.
Google is the first tech firm in the US to extend its voluntary work from home option, amid the ongoing pandemic.
Sundar Pichai, CEO of Google’s parent company, Alphabet, made the call following a meeting with other top executives.
According to an e-mail sent to its employees, the company noted that “To give employees the ability to plan ahead, we are extending our global voluntary work from home option through June 30, 2021 for roles that don’t need to be in the office.”
Google initially announced plans to reopen some offices for a limited number of employees from 6th July.
According to reports, the decision was made to allow employees with families to have more certainty on how long they would be working remotely.
Facebook, Twitter and Square are other tech corporations that have also announced plans to allow employees to continue working remotely.
