In an email to Google staff on Sunday, December 13, Chief Executive Officer Sundar Pichai said the company was also testing the idea of a "flexible workweek" once it is safe to return to the office. 

"We are testing a hypothesis that a flexible work model will lead to greater productivity, collaboration, and well-being," Pichai wrote. The plan is for Google employees to work at least three days a week in the office while working from home the other days, reports said.
