The coronavirus epidemic has affected the world economy. Many large companies had to close their offices and provide work-from-home facilities to their employees. US tech giants Facebook and Google have also asked most of their employees to work from home in the early stages of leprosy. Now Facebook and Google have extend working from home by the end of the year. The companies’ offices have also been reopened as the third phase of layoffs is being relaxed. Google and Facebook are also opening offices in July.
However, both the companies said that their employees who are currently working from home will get the facility by the end of this year. Google had earlier said that its work-from-policy would remain in effect until June 1. However, they have now decided to extend it for seven months. Facebook, on the other hand, says its office will be open until July 6, but employees will continue to work from home until the end of December.
Google CEO Sundar Pichai said employees who need to come to the office will be able to come from July. Google is raising security standards in offices around the world to protect employees from infection. Most employees can continue working from home. They will be able to do so by the end of this year. The situation is changing, Pichai said. Employees and their family members are involved in making important decisions about returning to work.
A Facebook spokesperson said that employees who can continue their work away from the office can take advantage of the work-from-home facility by the end of the year.
Facebook is one of the first companies to offer work-from-home services to workers. Due to Corona, many companies are seriously considering their work culture. Indian companies like TCS, Infosys HCL will also continue to promote work from home, he said.
