LinkedIn’s Chief People Officer Teuila Hanson has revealed that most of its 16,000 employees will be able to work remotely full-time.
LinkedIn’s liberal policy differs from its owner Microsoft, which is using a more hybrid approach that allows employees to work in the office 50% of the time and remotely 50% of the time. The company is still slowly reopening its global offices dependent on Covid-19 infection rates in each area.
“We anticipate that we’ll definitely see more remote employees than what we saw prior to the pandemic,” said Hanson just prior to the announcement.
Employees who decide to move locations in their remote work positions could also see a pay adjustment depending on the market.
Hanson also added that LinkedIn will not require employees to show proof of vaccination when returning to the office, which contrasts other major companies’ policies amidst the spike in the Delta variant.
