Google and Facebook offer employees work from home till December

CEO Mark Zuckerberg

While doing so, the company said that it is planning for how and when it can bring certain employees back to their offices. While about 10%-15% select Google staffers that will resume in offices by July, other employees are free to pop into the office when they are free, Pichai said.

Will working from home hurt your career?

Employees have been working from home since March, and, as technology companies adapt to the new normal, it is hard to see how work life can return to the old way of doing things after such an extended period.

Alphabet-owned Google said Friday that employees should take the day off on May 22 to recover from work-from-home burnout during the coronavirus pandemic.

Google G Suite Vice President and General Manager Javier Soltero says he has seen "incredible" growth in Google Meet use in last three months as more people work from home.

Naficy notes: "Facebook is showing true leadership by letting their staff work from home". However, it now looks like most of Google's workforce will be operating remotely for quite some time to come.


Although there has been a growing trust of CEOs caused by the forced remote work instituted by the COVID-19 lockdown, a considerable number may still be looking to resume the old system that has been tested and trusted to work.

The report also stated that company's CEO Mark Zuckerberg may announce Facebook's office reopening plan in an official statement soon.

Google did not immediately return a request for comment.

The probability of recession could considerably affect a company's decision to try a new method of business operation.
