1 Mins read

The Company has announced to keep its staff working remotely till 2021. Although other tech firms have announced long-term plans to keep employees working from home due to restrictions from the coronavirus pandemic, but Google would be the first to extend remote working till July next year.

Sundar Pichai, the CEO of Google parent company Alphabet, made the call last week following a meeting with top company executives. A Google spokesperson said  that Pichai sent an email to employees this morning announcing the plan: “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.”

Although it was reported that some offices will be opened for a limited number of employees starting on July 6th, but it made the U-turn to physical offices optional. He (Pichai) made the decision to establish a more specific time frame for remote working in part to give Google employees with families more certainty about how long they would be working from home, as many are struggling with inconsistent direction.

Facebook, Twitter and other tech firms has also announced that their workers should continue working remotely till further notice.
