Facebook Extends Remote Working Until Summer 2021
Facebook has announced that it will extend its remote work policy until the middle of next year, following Google’s similar announcement.
“Based on guidance from health and government experts, as well as decisions drawn from our internal discussions about these matters, we are allowing employees to continue voluntarily working from home until July 2021,” a spokeswoman said.
In addition to this announcement, the social media company revealed it would provide employees with $1,000 to use towards home office needs.

Some companies have already prepared a more long-term plan, such as Twitter which announced that workers could work from home indefinitely back in May.
