Facebook is embracing work from home well beyond the pandemic, with CEO Mark Zuckerberg saying he expects as many as half of Facebook employees to work remotely by 2030. The shift will be gradual and will require new tools to offset lost in-person interactions, said the chief. Workers leaving Silicon Valley — where the social media giant is headquartered — will have to notify the company and may face a pay cut based on their new locations. Facebook has more than 45,000 employees, making it the largest company to announce plans to allow them to permanently work from home.
- Canadian e-commerce platform Shopify said it will allow most workers to work from home indefinitely. Twitter and Square have also announced similar plans.
- Google is letting employees work from home through the end of the year, while Amazon and Microsoft employees can continue to work remotely through at least October.
- Cryptocurrency exchange Coinbase plans to adopt a “remote-first” policy, allowing employees to decide between their homes or the office, even after pandemic restrictions are eased.
