The search-engine giant stepped up to make working-from-home a normal business norm for another year!
CEO Sundar Pichai thinks that the coronavirus is going to stay here in the next year too, hence, keeping his employees home until July 2021 and expecting them to get used to it.
That's right, the search engine giant is bracing for a great pandemic and believes the virus will continue haunting us for a long time, at least to the Americans!
The announcement came in as an attempt to give its employees a sense of normalcy in otherwise abnormal times…
"I know it hasn't been easy," says Pichai in a written message to Big Data company employees on Monday. "I hope this will offer the flexibility you need to balance work with taking care of yourselves and your loved ones over the next 12 months."
The majority of Google's 200,000 employees (including contractors) now continue working from home in the coming year, as per the new work policies.
Previously, the company had permitted some of its employees to work remotely by the end of 2020, with some employees asked to join back to the offices sooner.
Tech companies are taking the lead when it comes to adapting new work policies amid the pandemic, with companies including Twitter and Facebook announcing to allow employees to continue working remotely indefinitely.
