Twitter Won’t Reopen Offices Before Sept., Allows Permanent Work From Home

Twitter Won’t Reopen Offices Before Sept., Allows Permanent Work From Home”

"It will be careful, intentional, office by office and gradual". Twitter is leading the charge in this regard by announcing that all of its employees would be able to work from home indefinitely, taking the lockdown situation as an excuse to test this kind of work methodology out and finding it to be more or less useful in a wide variety of ways. Twitter was one of many first tech firms to make it necessary for its nearly 5,000 workers to work at home.

Twitter said that opening offices will be its decision, and that when and if Twitter's staff come back, the decision will be theirs. "We were uniquely positioned to respond quickly and allow folks to work from home given our emphasis on decentralisation and supporting a distributed workforce capable of working from anywhere".

The email from Dorsey also revealed that there is a good chance that Twitter may not open its offices before September and that business travel will be canceled until then.

But it also said it would allow workers to return to the office if they choose when it reopens.

That means that most open roles at Twitter will be remote-optional going forward, Dorsey said.

The company, based in San Francisco and with a site in London, employs around 5,000 people and said it was among the first to start a work from home model.

Facebook and Google have already stated their staff can work from home until the end of the year.

The move comes after Alphabet Inc.'s Google (GOOGL) last week said that it will let employees take off the day on May 22 to address work-from-home related burnout during the coronavirus pandemic, Reuters reported.

As time continues and the country begins to see how the pandemic unfolds, one thing is for sure: workplaces will never be the same. There has been a mentality that working from home was stealing from the boss and facetime in the office was more important. Google previously said that Google staff could working from home until 1 June.
