Twitter Chief Executive Officer Jack Dorsey has said the social media giant employees can work from home, as long as they want.
He told the company’s staff on tuesday, that many of them would be allowed to work from home on a permanent basis even after the pandemic ends, while a limited number would be allowed to return, according to the company spokesperson.
“Opening offices will be our decision, “When and if our employees come back, will be theirs.” Twitter spokesperson said.
In an email to Buzzfeed.com Twitter owner said, the company is unlikely to reopen its offices before September and all in-person events are canceled for the remainder of the year.
“We were uniquely positioned to respond quickly and allow folks to work from home given our emphasis on decentralization and supporting a distributed workforce capable of working from anywhere.
“The past few months have proven we can make that work. So if our employees are in a role and situation that enables them to work from home and they want to continue to do so forever, we will make that happen. If not, our offices will be their warm and welcoming selves, with some additional precautions, when we feel it’s safe to return.” The spokesperson said.
Other tech companies like Google and Facebook are also implementing similar measures, to curtail the spread of Covid-19 among staff.
