Twitter Employees Will Never Have to Go Back To Office Again

Last week, Google said it has asked employees to take a day off on May 22, to address work-from-home related burnout during the pandemic.

After Google and Facebook, who recently announced that some of its employees will be able to work from home until the end of 2020, another USA giant is taking a similar measure.

Yesterday, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey wrote in an email to employees that the company will allow nearly everyone to work from home permanently.

"The past few months have proven we can make that work", the statement continues.

If employees do want to return to the office, they can do so when the time comes with some additional precautions.

Commercial real estate leases often last 10 years, and very few firms are now in a position to make 10-year decisions.

The company has also canceled all in-person events for the year, and is refraining from sponsoring business travel until after August. "That will remain our top priority as we work through the unknowns of the coming months", the spokesperson says in the statement. And for the employees, Twitter has upped its allowance to $1000 for work from home supplies.

Twitter employees were told that they can continue working from home after the coronavirus pandemic has passed. She also revealed that the opening would be gradual and carried out carefully.

Silicon Valley companies were among the first adopters of work-from-home policies when the coronavirus spread, and they're in no rush to bring workers back to campus.

In case there was any doubt as to what had transpired, Dorsey hopped on a platform he does understand - Twitter - to clear things up. Events scheduled for 2021 will be reassessed later this year. However, Twitter has started looking at the challenges facing the new normal, it remains to be seen how this passes too. The clarity will help employees make longer-term plans about where they decide to live and what office equipment they choose to purchase for their homes.
