Tech giant Google has announced that it will allow most of its employees to work from home till July 2021. Google had, like other companies around the world, instituted this policy in response to COVID-19 pandemic.
"To give employees the ability to plan ahead, we are extending our global voluntary work from home option through June 30, 2021 for roles that don't need to be in the office," read an email to the employees by Google chief executive Sundar Pichai.
According to The Wall Street Journal, which first reported the news, nearly all of the 200,000 Google employees and contractors worldwide would see an extension of the option which had been set to end in January 2021.
Twitter had also earlier announced that it would allow all its employees to continue to work remotely indefinitely.
