Google extends work from home until next year due to ongoing pandemic
Pichai stated that he is pleased to report that many offices worldwide are already open for business and that tens of thousands of Googlers have voluntarily returned.
Due to the epidemic, Google on Tuesday extended the option for its workers to work from home until next year. Returning to Google campuses will remain voluntary worldwide until January 10, according to CEO Sundar Pichai, with local offices granted choice over when to force staff to return to their desks. Pichai stated that he is pleased to report that many offices worldwide are already open for business and that tens of thousands of Googlers have voluntarily returned.
He also stated that the road ahead may be a little longer and bumpier than anticipated, but he is confident that we will all make it through together. He offered Google employees 30 days' notice before they had to return to work and stated that they would be allowed to take an extra day off in October and December to relax and recharge.
Google, Facebook, and other tech behemoths have postponed plans for staff to return to campuses abandoned early in the epidemic to prevent the spread of Covid-19.
As the Delta variety spreads in the United States and other countries, IT companies have implemented vaccination and mask regulations to keep their operations safer.
