Amazon has extended its work from home policy, as the pandemic continues to pick up throughout the country.
Amazon had previously slated October as the month when employees would return to the office. According to Reuters, Amazon has extended that by three months, now allowing employees to work from home until January 8, 2020.
The change is more in harmony with other tech giants, some of whom have instituted permanent work from home policies. Others, like Amazon, have instituted telecommute policies in place for the rest of the year.
The ongoing adjustments to work policies are further evidence of the long-lasting impact the pandemic is having on the economy, as well as fundamental changes it is having on what is considered a “normal” workforce.
