Major Companies Extend Remote Working Policies

Large companies such as Apple, Google, Facebook, Twitter and many others are planning to allow employees to work remotely until at least 2021 as the threat of the pandemic remains.

Tim Cook, CEO of Apple, announced that the company’s employees can work from home until early 2021, while Uber revealed that employees can do so until June 30, 2021.

Facebook also said it would allow employees to work remotely until July 2021 and anticipates that at least half of its workforce will work from home indefinitely.

This follows Google’s recent announcement that it will keep its workers in remote positions until July 2021.

“It’s about being empathetic and having compassion for what employees are going through and how they’re feeling,” said Jay Jamrog, futurist and co-founder of research firm the Institute for Corporate Productivity. “There are a lot of employees who don’t feel safe; they don’t want to go to work and catch the [virus] or bring it home to their families. The wellbeing of employees is huge, and it’s the right thing to do.”

Jamrog also said that employers are also seeing benefits of this new arrangement by cutting down on costs and seeing a bump in overall productivity.
