Twitter to allow employees work from home

Twitter will allow some of its employees to continue work remotely forever if they choose even after the end of the coronavirus enforced lockdown.


The social media giant said it was among the first to move to telework amid the COVID-19 pandemic in early March and that it will continue that policy indefinitely as part of a move towards a distributed workforce.


“We were uniquely positioned to respond quickly and allow folks to work from home given our emphasis on decentralization and supporting a distributed workforce capable of working from anywhere. The past few months have proven we can make that work”,  Twitter wrote in a blog.


“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”.


 The San Francisco-based company stated it is unlikely to open its offices before September and any reopening of its offices will be "careful, intentional, office by office and gradual" when conditions permit.


As per the blog, there will also be no business travel before September, with very few exceptions, and no in-person company events for the rest of 2020.
