Google and Facebook are telling employees to be prepared to Work From Home for the rest of the year.
On Thursday, Facebook told employees that they can work remotely through 2020 if they like. The social media company doesn’t expect to open most offices until July 6 at the earliest.
“If we can work remotely, if we can work from home, and help take some of the pressure off and flatten the curve, we will do that,” Jacquelline Fuller, head of Google.org, said Friday in an interview on Bloomberg TV.
According to Bloomberg TV, Google was one of the first Silicon Valley companies to shut its offices in early March. In his April email, Pichai said any return would be “staggered” and “incremental.”
