Twitter Allows Employees to Work from Home Permanently
Twitter on Thursday, 12th May 2020, announced employees can work from home indefinitely. Twitter employees have been working remotely since March in the wake of global lockdown due to COVID-19.
CEO of the social media giant, Jack Dorsey emailed the employees notifying them of the change, and it comes with no loss of pay. In the email, Dorsey said the company wouldn’t likely return to its offices before September, and even after lockdown measures end, employees could continue work from home if they want. This excludes, workers and staff who are required to be physically present in office premises such as those maintaining work servers.
“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.”

This move was preceded with Facebook and Google allowing work from home till the end of the year, although offices are scheduled to reopen in July.
Companies world over are working out of ways to reopen office and make the spaces safe in accordance with the social distancing measures.
