Google’s employees are working from their homes. At first, the offices were going to open on June 1st 2020. However, the company has told its employees that they will work from their homes until the end of 2020. Sundar Pichai has clearly made an announcement. After Facebook, Google has also taken this decision.
What did Sundar Pichai, CEO of Google say?
He said that employees which are required to be present for their jobs will be able to come to office. However, they will be able to come back in around June. Besides this, the company will take many precautions. He also said that the experience will certainly be, much more different than before.
Facebook has also done the same thing. Their employees will also be able to work from home until the end of 2020. After Facebook’s announcement, it was clear that other tech giants will follow. Now that these two have taken this step, it won’t be long until other companies also do this.
Employees for both Google and Facebook are working from home since March. This will become the new “normal” for the employees and they will be able to work from their homes till 2021.
Google knows that it will affect their work to some extent but they are not going to force anyone to stay inside their homes. We will have to see the new policies which these companies set to continue working at an optimum level. It won’t be long before some employees will come back to office. However, it is not going to be the same as it used to be.
Companies like Google and Facebook can allow their employees to work remotely. It means that not every big company will take this step. We will just have to wait some more to see which of the other tech giants follow on Google and Facebook’s paths.
