While Facebook allows more employees to work from home permanently, those who want to return to the office will have to wait until the middle of next year.
As reported ReutersThe social network has decided to extend its work-from-home policy for employees until July 2021. The decision reflects the decision that Google made last month. However, Facebook is also offering money to everyone to set up their home office for the company next year.
In a statement sent via email, a Facebook spokesperson said, “Based on guidelines from health and government experts and decisions made from our internal discussions on these issues, we are allowing employees to volunteer from home work July 2021 … In addition, we’re giving employees an additional $ 1,000 for home office needs. “
That’s not to say that all employees will stay at home as Facebook continues to intend to reopen offices to a very limited group of employees based on government guidelines and ultimately where the company can do so in all countries where it has a presence . However, for most, working from home remains the preferred and required option, especially in the US.
