Some employees of the microblogging service Twitter, transferred to remote work in the context of the coronavirus pandemic, will not be able to go to the offices even after the lifting of the restrictions imposed to combat the spread of Covid-19. On this subject, writes BuzzFeed News with reference to the corresponding letter to the employees of the company of the founder and chief of Twitter Jack Dorsey.
Dorsey writes that employees whose responsibilities do not require a workplace presence can still work outside the office. So employees serving Twitter servers still have to go to work. In addition, Dorsey noted that the company’s offices will open at the earliest in September. Then you can expect business trips to resume. Finally, the company canceled all offline events before the end of the year.
Note that the Twitter service transferred the majority of employees to remote work in mid-March. Later, other large technology companies did the same. Recently, Jennifer Christie, chief human resources officer at Twitter, noted that the company “will probably never be the same” in terms of work organization, and employees transferred to remote work realize that they like to work from home.
Recall that last week, Facebook and Google announced that they would allow employees transferred to remote work due to the coronavirus pandemic to work from home until the end of 2020. Earlier, the two companies announced their intention to open offices from July. In offices, measures will be taken to protect against coronavirus, but employees who can work outside the office will be able to stay at home until early 2021.
In mid-April, Facebook canceled all offline events scheduled for June 2021 with more than 50 participants. Then, founder and head of social media, Mark Zuckerberg, said the company had also extended the remote work mode for most employees until at least the end of May. Facebook also paid workers transferred to “udalenka” for $ 1,000.
In early April, Microsoft announced plans to host all internal and public events online until July 2021.
